Bookstores

Wouldn’t it be absolutely wonderful to be able to work in a bookstore? Right now I am sitting in Books-A-Million getting ready to fill out my third (I think) application with them. Today I needed a place where I could escape for a couple of hours and get out of my house. At first I was going to go to the library, but then I remembered that we do have a Books-A-Million in town that I never go to and I’m glad I did come here but also regretting it at the same time seeing as I don’t have any money but that’s another story. After being here for awhile I asked the lady are they hiring and she said that they are always taking applications. I know I’ve filled out an application at least three time here, but this would seriously be my dream job and I have so many ideas that I would want to implement already. I don’t this BAM does any kind of events to get more people coming to their store. I think they should be doing open mic nights, poetry readings, hosting local book authors or something to get more traffic coming to their store. I’ve applied multiple times before so it kind of makes me discouraged to try again but I’m going to anyway. Being surrounded by books is my happy place, quite literally and I know I would be the right employee. I love the thought of talking with customers about one of my favorite things or recommending certain books. It sounds like utter bliss! Well, I’m going to fill out this application while I sit in the store that holds my job seeking fate in their hands. Send me good vibes!
