You might well be thinking, “Is it December already? Where did the year go?”,and on a personal level so am I. But I’m also thinking, “Is it March already?’ because I am currently choosing and ordering books which will arrive in the shop in March 2012.
I am also receiving from publishers lots of “uncorrected proof copies” of books which will be published in March/April 2012. By early February my staff and I will have read many of them and that’s how we are able to recommend (or not!) books to our customers. We are all avid readers so books are not just ‘merchandise’ to us, rather they are an important source of information and entertainment!
