Today is Small Business Saturday, and a bunch of authors will be working at their local independent bookstores. From 4 to 6 p.m. I'll be at Books and Books in Coral Gables, so if you need to shop for books, come see me and I will do my best to help you, probably by asking somebody who actually knows something.

BONUS: They also sell wine and beer at Books and Books.

"Unlicensed topless barbers. Do you have anything like a hand book or license prep book, study guide with actual licensing test questions? How about ugliness? Anything in written form as to how I could possibly make myself any uglier?"

-Suzette Hall

Ethel the Aardvark goes quantity surveying?

Bookstore clerks get all the questions like reference librarians at a public library, with the added dimension of trying to make a sale.

God bless them.

Ask the store if they have ASIN: B008VTRJUQ in stock.

What a wonderful looking bookstore! 9000 sq. ft of books with a fireplace, an outdoor courtyard, a cafe, plus beer and wine. It doesn't get any better than that. They would never get me out of that store.

I would have to ask Dave if they have this book. Then I'd run.

Beer! 50 Shades of Great. :)

I wish I could be there with you, Dave...especially as it is f#cking freezing here.

You better run fast, cindy.

There's a bookstore in Florida? Color me gobsmacked.

AKA: Barak Manilow.

I'm pretty sure there will be a few people in there with their hopes up, still looking for the answer to this:

The order is: Red dot, white dot, blue dot. The order is: Green dot.

Let them down easy, Dave

Whoa, Steve. Good memory.

"Excuse me, sir...where is the bathroom? Whaddya MEAN there's no public bathroom in this store? MY KID'S GOTTA GO! No, I will NOT take him next door to the Subway's, he has to go NOW, and if you don't show me which door is the bathroom's I will try them ALL until I find it!"

Actual dialogue I experienced while working at a Crown Books...all this and minimum wage. Dave, I am SO jealous...

Annie, they do. And you can get the crayons there, too.

Yeah, just have a few while you're reading one of Dave's books. My laughter would get louder and louder and probably get thrown out from laughing too loud.

Thanks to our Over lord Dave for supporting all the wee businesses !!!

Heh, heh, heh. He said "wee".
