Hi! I'm Kate too. (2)

Just a quick introduction, I'm Kate Robinson the Assistant Manager here at ye olde 'Smith...I will be posting a bit on industry stuff, ebook fun, and Shop Local & Indie Bound news. I'm really interested the manner in which the ebook is changing the way we look at the book as a commodity. I'm also looking at the scary yet exciting opportunities this provides independent bookstores with; eliciting something outside the virtual...and inside the actual.

Hi everyone,
This is Paul, ancient Booksmithie and newsletter writer, and Katie is just being silly. As of the last few moments, there are now officially two posts, and Genie and Katie are standing near me talking about how more of us are going to get into the act, asap.

Let me put some actual "content" in here:
I LOVE WILLIAM VOLLMANN. And I con't care a bit about his famously questionable personal habits. I'm reading "The Rifles" at the moment, and within one hallucinegenic page I was as enthralled as I've been by any book since I was in grade school and opened "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe" for the first time.

Anyway, this wasn't so hard, and I'll be back on here soon.

Blogs are great and all, but come into the store this holiday season, we miss you.

Hello, this is Katie, bookseller, events wrangler, flyer-maker, veg cookbook fanatic.

Soon we will get this thing back up and running for real, but probably not 'til after the holidays.

For now, please visit us on Twitter and Facebook. They are some of the best ways to stay up-to-date with the event series and other store happenings as they are happening. Like, when I was startled at the Boston Book Fest by a life-sized Clifford, or when gossips broke celebrity event news (ahem AMY), or the moment a child declared us "the Las Vegas of Brookline."
