Showing a Little Enthusiasm

12 Jan

So I almost freaked out a customer today due to my enthusiasm of what she was buying.

I work at a popular bookstore chain. My store in particular is one of the largest in the district and the country. Our whole family has been customers of this store for years, and Rachel and I in particular were always frequenting their aisles of books, music, DVDs, and gifts. When I was looking for another job, I figured I spent so much time there that I may as well get paid.

Anyways, so I was at the cashwrap and a mother and her daughter come to my register, and I may have accidentally scared them. Not really, we were all laughing, especially my coworker from down the line who got really confused when she suddenly heard me start babbling excitedly. After investigating what books got me excited, my coworker deemed my raving as acceptable.

What were the books? They were Erin Morgenstern’s “The Night Circus,” David Dalglish’s “A Dance of Chaos,” and the Harry Potter coloring book.

“The Night Circus” is one of my all-time favorite books. If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you may remember my post dedicated to trying to describe the brilliance of it. I squeal whenever I see someone buy it, and it’s one of the books that I recommend to everyone!

“A Dance of Chaos” is the six and final book in Dalglish’s Shadowdance series. I’ve finally reached the finale and I’m excited to see how this ride ends with his memorable characters. I had literally started the book during my lunch break a mere half an hour before the customers had come up to buy it.

Then there’s the Harry Potter coloring book, one of the adult, relaxing coloring books that is all the rage right now. We have a plethora of different kinds of coloring books with them being displayed in multiple sections of the store. The Harry Potter one is probably our most popular — we can’t keep it in stock!

Just seeing a few of my favorite books being bought was enough to make me want to buy more books. One can never have enough books on one’s to-be read list, right?

    I haven’t read The Night Circus yet, but I finally got a copy. I’ve been wanting to read it since I first heard about it a couple of years ago, and I’ve been keeping an eye out for it at my local used bookstore. When I saw a copy come in the other day, I jumped all over it and got it. Yes!!! It’s now near the top of my TBR list.

        Currently reading The Raven Boys. I’ll definitely tackle The Night Circus next.
