We Need More

Contributed by Ashley Herring Blake, Author

I recently started working in an indie bookstore. The great
thing about this job, aside from being surrounded by beautiful books all day
long, is that it gets me out of my writer brain and back in touch with my
reader brain. I work mostly in the kid’s section, and every day customers come
in with very specific requests. I’ve noticed a lot of the teens who frequent
the young adult section don’t ask for recommendations all that much, but the
middle grade and advancing readers section is a cornucopia of parents looking
for certain books or certain topics for their kids.
