Thanksgiving weekend was a blast!
One of the best parts of the Thanksgiving weekend is that we meet your friends and family - the folks we have been hearing about, and helping you choose books for. It is so much fun having siblings, parents, kids, aunts, uncles, and grandparents in the store, enjoying books!
The booksellers wore colorful shirts on Plaid Friday to celebrate local businesses. Small businesses like ours give back to our communities through donations to schools and non-profits, and also by providing jobs, paying taxes, purchasing goods, and more.
Tomie dePaola's visit on Small Business Saturday was delightful as ever! He met fans and old friends representing several generations and had a story and a smile for everyone. We asked Tomie to sign some extra books in case you could not get here that morning.
Our invention, Slow Reading Sunday, was a gentle way to wind down after a hectic few days. (And I spent it by the woodstove.)
Next was Cider Monday and we enjoyed locally pressed cider and baked treats as folks browsed books in the store. If you would like to shop online, we invite you to visit us at norwichbookstore.com!
We are thankful to have shared part of your weekend with you. It has been a busy and fun time and now we have a couple of days to prepare for the December 1st festivities. ~ Liza
