Shopping Independent Bookstores!
Becky is running a marathon in March in Little Rock, and for a little encouragement I searched for a picture book from a forum acquaintance, Amy Dixon, titled Marathon Mouse, illustrated by Sam Denlinger.
I found it immediately at an independent bookstore. In Memphis. Five hours away.
So I bought it immediately. Online.
Totally a great experience, wonderful exchange through email, resulting in a promise to visit that bookstore, just around the corner from my sister’s house in Memphis, in the near future.
You see, I hold treasured moments when I was able to walk into a small bookstore and browse the shelves for anything interesting, inspiring, or inciting. And I don’t want independent booksellers to go away.

Let me encourage you to shop independent bookstores where ever you find them; around the neighbor hood corner, when you visit your sister in Memphis, on a long road trip when one pops up in sight along your route–or online!
