Yesterday, my new manager told me she had put out nine big boxes of books last week. I organized and stocked four more boxes, and sold 23 books during my four hour shift. Two customers commented that they had start stopping in regularly to check out the books. I sent one grandmother out with an excellent start for her grandkids summer reading: Dahl, 'Johnny Tremaine', the Magic Tree House series and Junie B. It was a great day, topped off by a very entertaining show by the K and 1st graders.
O2 got up to the mic and said, "Good evening", and everyone laughed. He paused and said, "Good evening, I'm O2", then read his journal entry. The K performed a song written by a folksinger about the last panther killed in our town. It's called 'A Cage of Glass', as the panther is stuffed and resides at a local museum. I almost cried.
All in all, an excellent day.
