90 points.  Hmm.  Well, we'll see, both if I can get published, and if I'm a writer for the ages.

Happy Caturday, Bibliophiles! Here's my quote of the day. Please visit my blog sometime :-)

"With a library you are free, not confined by temporary political climates. It is the most democratic of institutions because no one - but no one at all - can tell you what to read and when and how."
-- Doris Lessing

We loved it! Lots of action as to be expected and a few surprises. Stan Lee made his usual cameo as well.

Story
Tagline
Neurotically attached to the idea of making a living selling interesting OLD books, maps, ephemera and anything nostalgic.
Introduction
I am a bookseller and have been in the business since 1989. USED books that is, the older the better... This means I actually apprenticed in a brick & mortar store, learning it all!

I love books, coffee, atomic history, Idaho, cats, antiques and old stuff in general.

I'm an elementary school Library volunteer - I think everyone should do this as children need inspiration in learning to love books. Best way to make my day? When a little kid asks me why I like to work in the Library for free...

My idea of a good time would for someone to lock me in the Library of Congress or Smithsonian for a weekend. Alone.
Bragging rights
I survived thyroid cancer. Boosh!
