The Little Bookstore...

...of Big Stone Gap. An informative yet delightful memoir by Wendy Welch. It tells the the story of how, burnt out and jaded, she and her husband fell in love with a house  in a town they could love among mountains that felt like home and decided to pursue a dream of owning a bookstore. Used books. And how they made it work, becoming part of a community along the way. Personalities and experiences spice up the pages as well as book talk.

This book really struck me as helpful as well as good reading material. For my husband and I hope to open a used bookstore in the next couple of years. It provides a cautionary tale (what not to do) and some assistance (what to do) as an entrepreneur. And it's just good reading!
