Welcome, and here's to hope

Welcome to the blog produced by your friends at Green Apple Books. We're not sure exactly what's to come, but we'll keep it interesting. The booksellers here are a humbly creative lot, and while we'll generally focus on books, authors, and our bookstore, we'll mostly just do our best to add an interesting something to each day that we're lucky enough to be here in the dusty shop.

We start, in early February, with a hopeful poem and a simple image. Despite the doom and gloom, people somehow keep coming to our store, as seen here from a camera we left running atop a stack of David Sedaris's When You Are Engulfed in Flames. So in between the hope of the inauguration and the promise of spring comes this short poem/video. The poem is "Sometimes" by Sheenagh Pugh.

Comment if you wish, about the poem, the video, or what you hope to see on our blog.

Who's going to sue us first, Steve Jobs or Sir Paul McCartney?

I quite like the store. Ass-cam, however, would have to be an acquired taste.
