As we head into our THIRD year at Seaport Books, we’re celebrating all the love that brought us here. The love of good books. The love of discovering new titles. The love of meeting and encouraging local authors. The love of book clubs and discussions about great reads. The love of introducing young adults to amazing stories. The love of working as a team to provide great customer service. The love of children smiling at picture books. The love of seniors reconnecting with a favorite title. And the love of being a vibrant part of the community. Thanks to all of you who appreciate and support our efforts. From the feedback we keep getting, it seems the love story is a mutual one. Here’s to happily ever after!
We made it! April 26th marked our one year anniversary here at Seaport Books. Our THANKS to all of you who have made our success even sweeter by your encouragement and support. We’ve hosted 24 events and welcomed readers from across the globe including over 7 countries. It’s been a year of applying know how and discovering need to know. We’ve put together a countdown of the top five things we learned this past year about having a bookstore. Here we go:
#5: Location. Location. Location. It took months to find just the right spot for our bookstore. Being on the channel, next to the town square and in a historic building proved to be a winning combination. We’re so glad we held out for the best!
#4: It takes a lot more than a love of books to run a bookstore – but loving books is what makes the running worth it.
#3: UPS = sweet anticipation. How we love to open boxes of newly ordered books.
#2: There are never enough book shelves. (See #3)
#1: The only thing better than a happy ending is a happy customer.
Here’s to many more years of happy customers, wonderful authors, good friends and great reads!
