Blogging Anniversary

Josie Leavitt - April 11, 2011

I just realized that last week marked Elizabeth’s and my two-year anniversary of writing the ShelfTalker blog. It’s been a pleasure to write about the book world. Every day something happens at the store that I want to talk about. And honestly, my customers and friends don’t necessarily want to hear about it, so it’s been delightful for me to have an outlet to discuss the book biz.
In looking through my posts from the past two years, I have noticed a trend in my writing: I like writing about kids with books. Nothing makes me happier than seeing a child bounce up and down because they’ve fallen in love with a book. Every day that I get to see the power of books on a family, and to be able to share that with the readers of ShelfTalker is a wonderful thing.
I looked through some of the comments from the last two years and was struck anew by how great our readers are. I read a lot of blogs, but I seldom, okay, never, take the time to comment on what I’ve read, so it’s a delight to get comments from our readers, some of whom have helped me understand the book world better.
I have no idea how the bookselling landscape will change, but Elizabeth and I will continue to give you our take on it. So, thank you for a great two years and we look forward to sharing our thoughts with all of you.

    Happy second anniversary–if it was your first, I could’ve given you paper. Hmm, what paper gift would be perfect?
