“Listen! The wind is rising, and the air is wild with leaves, we have had our summer evenings, now for October eves!”
Humbert Wolfe (1885-1940)
Do you read scary stories?
I want to know what you enjoy reading. I love reading mysteries that’s why I write them. But I have never read a Steven King novel. Also a few of my favorite authors, Margaret Attwood and T. C. Boyle, both write thrilling or terrifying novels. But I do not haunt the thriller section of libraries nor of Copperfield’s Books.
Copperfield’s Books emailed an October newsletter, which sparked this post. In Sonoma County, California, Copperfield’s Books has grown from their orignial book shop in Sebastopol (1981) to a total of eight stores with several in Napa, and Marin Counties.
Why write about Copperfield’s Books, a hometown book store?
I have multiple reasons to love this book business. For today, I will mention only three.
- I love Copperfield’s because they are an independent local business. I appreciate that their staff are all avid readers willing to help hunt down esotric or rare volumes.
- Each staff person reads and recommends books they love all year round they keep those shelves stocked with suggested fiction and nonfiction.
- Local book events bring authors of note and newbie Indie authors like Redwood Writers Club and myself, providing numerous book events in the North Bay.
Currently, Copperfield’s in Santa Rosa, has accepted my book and placed it in two categories. If you stop by the store you will find a copy of Red Sky at Night: Dog Leader Mysteries in the section on Mysteries for Middle Grade Readers and on the New Mysteries shelves for adults. I have added a link if you should want to read more about the marvelous book shop that continues to nurture and grow readers.
