You may have noticed that most recent posts have started to have a singular focus on books, bookstores, reading, etc. And while I’ve always been a bit of a bibliophile, it’s become apparent that I have a problem. So after taking the first step of admitting that I DO have a problem, I’m taking the next logical step and opening a bookstore. But not just any bookstore, we are opening a store full of amazing new adult and children’s books but also carrying over 20 local artists who make brilliant goods that fit into different book genres. Add to that some community space for after school art classes, book themed birthday parties, BookClubs, etc and I’ve created my own dream of local, literature heaven. I invite you to join me over at The Novel Neighbor / @NovelNeighbor to stay up-to-date on opening information, book reviews, author visits, etc. I’ve had a wonderful time creating Life Simplified but it’s time for me to make my life a whole lot more complicated. 🙂
