Friday Round-Up - #70

Sharon Ball, over at A Break From the Norm, interviews a bookstore owner, from Richmond, Virginia, in her 9/18/09 post. She's found new ways to connect with the community and survive in a highly-competitive field. The post is entitled, "Community Bookstores Make Our Communities."

Jean Fischer finds inspiration for her writing at the beach. She shares some interesting thoughts on observing our surroundings.

How do we find time to write? Kathryn Lang tackles this question over at Successful Freelance Writer.

Have a great weekend!

Susan, I just want to jump into that first photo and peruse. Can I have an hour, maybe two? ;)

Have a great weekend.

Jessica said...

Cool pics to go with the links! Thanks Susan. :-)

Hi Jody -

I think this bookstore owner is doing some innovative things. Perhaps more will take a cue from her.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi Janna -

I know what you mean! The thought of being turned loose in a bookstore (especially with money to spend) is my idea of a fun shopping trip.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Hi, Susan.

It's drizzling and gray here, too, with a frost warning for tonight!

I can't read the top part of your post, (my browser won't cooperate), so I'll catch up with it on Monday when it moves down the page.

Thank you for linking to the post on my blog.

Have a great weekend.
Jean

Hi Sharon -

I was quite taken by the article...goodness, I've been reading a Regency romance and have started talking like them! LOL!

Seriously, I thought it was an excellent piece and the owner innovative.

Blessings,
Susan :)

I want to be at the beach scene and if the weather gets gloomy I want to head over to the book store! Both places are my favorite ones to visit.

Thanks for connections. Always like to check out new sites to visit.

Hugs and blessings to you this weekend and always.

Hi Donna -

They are rather nice locations, aren't they?

Have a blessed weekend!
