A good many of the new books sold at the store are specially ordered by customers. First, these people are salt of the earth types, wonderful supporters of Main Street. All of us downtown have customers like this who show their community spirit by patronizing local businesses. Second, the books they order illustrate a huge variety in reading interests. Often the books ordered seem like something others would like, so I order one or two more for the store. One of these is The Dirty Life, a memoir of a New York City girl who fell in love with a farmer and embarked on a new path in life. Thanks to the customer who ordered the first copy, ten other local readers have enjoyed this book.
