Very late again. Doing the catalog is becoming less and less a priority since so few people order from it any more. There are so many factors contributing to this that it would take a whole catalog just to list them. I like the IDEA of doing a catalog but actually doing one…..
We’re buying books like mad – so many books are coming in I keep thinking I may have to place a total moratorium on buying books. But I can’t. I also keep thinking that the next great collection is just around the corner and if I say I’m not buying any more I’ll miss out. So the basement keep filling up and the store looks more like a museum every day.
