I fucking love book people.

I haven’t had a last day in years.

Today was my last day at Bookshop Santa Cruz. I was hired a little over six years ago, fresh out of college with a degree in creative writing, and I still remember how thrilled I was to be working with books. I have always loved bookstores - it’s the easiest thing in the world for me to be excited and creative and passionate about books. But I am also so excited and happy about my new gig, in which I will be the Sales Director for a nonprofit that supports local state parks. Basically, my job will be to stock and run the gift stores in five local state parks. I get to buy jellyfish puppets for a good cause. That’s pretty damn cool.


There’s a little voice in the back of my head. It’s been there for weeks, and it reminds me every now and then that perhaps there will never be another job that fits me as well as being a bookseller. It’s probably not true. But there’s only one way to find out.


Onward and upward.

Have you seen our new Olive editions?! These beauties officially go on sale September 16th, but you might see them popping up in your local bookstore before then. We’ll also have them on display at the Brooklyn Book Festival!


I have been waiting for this day.

Uh oh

Don’t try to picture everything bad that could possibly happen. Stick with the situation at hand and ask, “Why is this so unbearable? Why can’t I endure it?” You’ll be embarrassed to answer. Then remind yourself that past and future have no power over you. Only the present.

Can’t stop won’t stop twitching.

This weekend was absolutely fantastic RIGHT UP UNTIL I found two count ‘em TWO ticks on myself after a hike and Joe discovered that he is terribly sunburnt. Oops.

So if you’ll excuse me I’m going to go drink until my skin stops crawling.
