I guess you could call it our summer break. Every summer, I miss a week here or there for the email newsletter. I know we're not the only bookstore to be a wee bit inconsistent in our mailings, but it is pretty important to get the message out on events.
In the age of ebook immediacy, one wonders how long folks will wait for a book. Eh, I thought we'd lose all our special orders too, but we still seem to have plenty, and we're grateful to wholesalers and publishers for getting them to us quickly. I guess we'll see how the business changes.
Amusing aside--in the course of writing our correction, I received an email newsletter correction from another bookstore.
Here's a link to this week's email newsletter. Don't forget that Edward Janus is coming to the Milwaukee Public Library for Creating Dairyland on Tuesday, July 19, 6:30 pm.
