We are preparing viral marketing, set to launch in the coming weeks.
Today's drawing is of a favourite book published in recent years. The "we" in the title is actually the main character. Usually in stories it's a "she", "he" or "I", but in this case it's a collective story. It's set in an advertising firm in economic decline. Funny and disconcerting.
That's what she used to write about - emotionally complicated characters and their families. The books 'Human croquet' and 'Behind the scenes at the museum' are great novels. This one I haven't had the pleasure to read yet.
Lately Kate Atkinson has written some detective stories, which have been serialized on television. I like the early novels better, though. What do you think?
It's great to have a blackboard wall! We made some drawings as temporary decoration. It's also possible to write messages and pricing there.
Today's drawing is of a book by one of my favourite English writers - Julian Barnes.
Today was a day for building. I'm rearranging the shelving system today and tomorrow. Have half-and-half finished a new bookshelf today, and put the finishing touches on the blackboard wall (now ready for the chalk crayons!).
And here is today's book.
Here's a drawing of a book from our stock. I find it very relaxing to spend a few minutes making little pictures, like this one.
Today was a nice day at the shop. The neighbor bookshop Antikvanti celebrated their fourth anniversary. There were readings, lectures and music the whole afternoon; and of course lots of people milling around, sipping beverages. Very nice!
Today most of the afternoon the city was seiged by a monsoon. At least the Swedish
equivalent of a monsoon. Not many people came by, incidentally, which
enabled me to delve into isbn-crunching. This is what needs to be done
when I need to add new books to the webshop at Bokbörsen; you add the books to the shop inventory by filling out a form containing title, author, international book code number (isbn) and other information.
Of course the new books will show up in the shop as well.
See you tomorrow 10:00 - 15:00!
