Why I Haven't Been Posting

...or at least, why I haven't been posting anything besides Waiting on Wednesdays and Library Loot.

It's because I'm working again--at Borders! Well, it's not as a bookseller, but as a barista in the Seattle's Best Coffee café. It's only part-time, but it cuts into my reading quite a bit with working and then when I get home sometimes I just feel like doing nothing, not even reading.

Everyone says working retail sucks, but so far (only a week, though) it hasn't been too bad. Yesterday I got my first snarky customer, but also my first share of tips from the tip jar ($2.09 or something like that--and most of it in change, oooh!). Even though I work with SBC, I still get an employee discount and the option to "check out" up to two hardcover books at a time as long as I return them in very good condition.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know why I've been a little bit absent and that I still love all of my readers. Expect more reviews in the future, just not quite so many sometimes.

Happy inaugeration day!


  1. "Checking out" hardcover books seems like a great benefit to me. I hope they have a lot of cool YA where you work.

  2. Employed at a book store in any position would be dangerous for me - I can't even do a book signing without buying something at the store as well!

  4. checking out books = awesome :)
