Today was my last shift working at Book & Brier Patch. It'll be closed in 10 days. I've worked there for 10 years. It's quite sad really. It was always a place I could go to feel like I belonged, always a place I could work to feel smart. It was always there when I needed to pick up a few extra hours or if I ever needed to chat with a friend, there would be someone there. The B&B has indulged my book fetish, fostered my love of reading and allowed me to share that love with others. But the very best thing that this bookstore has brought me was a wonderful group of friends. Thank you B&B for 10 years of my life... I am grateful. I shall miss you.
