My former bookstore! #TheStrand
I was main floor history and fiction from 2007-2010. Also the shop steward, which was tough during the recession.

Esmerelda1rm I love going to the strand when I visit NYC!! 6mo
RaimeyGallant For sure going there on my upcoming trip. :) 6mo

Night Shift | Charlaine Harris

Sold my first book on Alibris today. Cost me $1. Wanted to sell it for $5, but hundreds of copies were selling for $1.99, so I went with the flow. Got $3.99 in shipping credit, paid $1.65 in fees, shipped for $4.80. So in the end, I paid a few bucks to ship a book to someone. The lesson was worth it though. I might start trying to sell the books I bind and paint. One day, a physical bookstore.

Sweettartlaura I stopped selling books online for exactly this reason 😕. I used to be able to make a few bucks off it. Not any longer 🤷🏻‍♀️ 5mo

Long Road to Liquor City | Joe Flood, Macon Blair
post image

I had to add this graphic novel into the catalogue here, because it is a heartwarming and fun tale of two Depression-era hobos trying to find the fabled Liquor City. I don't want to give too much away, but it's a fun read. #LGBTQ -friendly.

Rick and Morty vs. Dungeons & Dragons | Patrick Rothfuss, Jim Zub
post image
Pickpick

I love #JimZub #PatrickRothfuss #RickAndMorty and #DungeonsAndDragons #D&D so this was great for me. It's nice that the book does go through an intro of what d&d is in the first few sections. I like that they address the topic of power-gamers, and I get why Rick is the example. I just like Rick's character, so I had to suppress a bit of my Rick&Morty fandom in reading this book in order to appreciate the story Rothfuss & Zub told about D&D.

Autonomous | Annalee Newitz
post image
Pickpick

“To all the robots who question their programming“ - that's the dedication of this book and it speaks to me. We are a bit like robots and we are programmed, in small and large ways.
I really enjoyed the juxtaposition of the autonomous robot born free and the young boy who was sold into slavery and taught/programmed to be useful to his owners. I liked the juxtaposition of the pirate taking mood-altering drugs and the robot tweaking its code.

Reggie Have you ever read Sea of Rust? I think you would like it. Sounds like the themes might be a little similar. 6mo
Tonton Just moved this up on my TBR! 6mo
