Here from Substack Reads! My husbands and I listened to This Time Tomorrow together on a road trip in October -- one of my favorites of 2022! Happy to be here :)

Hello! I read the lithub article about your bookstore with a great sense of “Is she spying on us?” Because I work at used bookstore (one of many in a National chain....I’m not on Wheel of Fortune; can I name it? HPB!! 😉). Anyway, your description of booksellers is Spot. On. At least, with respect to me and my fellow employees. We ARE a bunch of opinionated weirdos!!

Actually, it was the pictures of your colorful house and the books, my gosh, the books.

Retired now but I always loved the bookseller conventions. It is fun to read about them.

Please expand Books Are Magic to Baltimore! I love shopping online from your stores and would be even more psyched if I could browse the shelves everyday. “This Time Tomorrow” was one of the best books I’ve read, and I want to re-read it, but my sister’s puppy ate my copy to pieces. Whoops. I’ll order another copy...

I love your father’s work, and did not realize he had left us.
