It has been a long week here on Amelia Island. The business of bookselling is incredibly complicated, with twists and turns and so many intricacies and variables your head spins from sun-up to sundown (my head spins, not yours.). We have talked about lighting designs and ordering forms and inventory checks and budgets and shelving and ceilings and planograms and software and hardware and rewards programs and Amazon and oy oy oy.

But at the end of a long week, it's clear that there is magic in the details. I think the vision of Bookspace Detroit has come to a beautiful place. We are ready to run with it, and I can't wait for you to see what it will be.

In the meantime, I guess thank goodness for this.
