Along with the house removal, another slight upheaval in my life currently is the fact that my husband's used bookshop, Chumley and Pepys, is closing its doors. There just isn't enough walk-in traffic in our small town. He will be moving online, however; look for him soon on Biblio.com.
I am sad that we are closing down such a cozy space; but also happy because it will give him more freedom. (again with the Libra balance fixation!) We've met some wonderful people over the past few years, and although we won't have a storefront, we will never cease being -- and having to be around -- book people.
