That's the name of the bookstore I intend to open up in Rexburg someday. I even have the most perfect location imaginable: a space that's right downtown, across from the craft store. It's really old, with tiles on the facade, and a huge, Willy Wonka-esque wooden front door. My store logo will have a really cool picture of Gutenberg on it, and will look something like this:
Only of course the name will be larger and centered.
It will look really really cool printed on a canvas bag. Did I mention how really, really, really cool this bookstore will be? Some of the things I will do in my bookstore are:
1. Have a children's story hour that is cooler than the library's
2. Sell hot chocolate and pastries and even let Holden fulfill his dream of having a "chocolate milk stand."
3. Have a really awesome kids book area that surpasses Barnes and Noble in coolness and funness.
4. Hold monthly book club meetings and serve refreshments inspired by Martha Stewart.
5. Have a used books section in the basement.
6. Do open mic poetry night weekly
7. Get live bands to perform every month
8. Start clubs: writers' clubs, sci-fi clubs (for the nerds), American poets clubs, kids clubs, etc.
The list goes on. I am stoked, I tell you, STOKED! Now....if only I knew HOW to open a bookstore. If only we weren't heading back to the desolate wasteland in a month...people who open bookstores generally tend to be IN the book business.... Any advice?
