A strange conversation, recently overheard…
In a book store yet.
One woman to the other: I get fidgety if I sit too long.
The other agrees, says, yes, that she has friends who can read for hours;
she has no idea how they do it.
Exactly! says the first. l mean, I Iike to read… but not for hours.
Another exchange, in the same shop, one that made more sense—
I ask the owner how many books he guesses he has in here.
His answer: not enough.
Every day, he says, someone comes in and asks for something he doesn’t have.
We get that, right?

What a great book store! And, I love his answer of “Not enough” – smart guy!
One of those brilliant shops where the owner knows exactly where to find a certain obscure volume… among the impossible stacks!
Kind of like my house! :)
Sounds lovely. There should be a magazine, like Home and Garden, but for book people. (;
I would subscribe!!
