While putting some final touches on my Christmas shopping yesterday, I ended up wandering around the mall finally making my way to the bookstore. (Okay, so my first stop was the bookstore…I’m a book addict. I can’t help myself.) As luck would have it I found a book by one of my favourite authors and figured it was a well deserved Christmas present.
So as I was browsing around, I noticed a table out front with a sign suggesting a variety of local books. Of course, Bitter, Sweet was among them. The table was filled with books!
Since local is definitely in, I suppose it’s a great way to promote our local talent and why not.
I’m not sure if I’m overly sensitive now that my own book is out but there seems to be a healthy selection of local books this fall. (By local I’m referring to authors from the South Shore of the province.) I don’t recall seeing this type of promotion other years. It may have been there and I just didn’t see it.
So to Coles in the Bridgewater Mall, I salute your promotion of our local talent. For anyone in the area make sure you check it out. I think you’ll be just as delighted as I over the variety of titles.
