Personal Note

I've mentioned here a few times that the company where I worked for almost 29 years cut me lose this past March 22. It's hard for me to believe that it has already been seven months since that happened. I've also shared my struggle to find employment in any of the three local bookstores around me, two Barnes & Noble ones and one of the Borders chain. I had always figured to spend some time working in a bookstore after leaving the corporate world but, for whatever reason, that dream is not going to happen if Barnes & Noble and Borders have anything to do with it. But that's another story.

I just wanted to mention that I'm starting a temporary corporate job in the morning that will keep me busy during the day for what should be the next 6-8 weeks. That means I won't be around much until the evenings but I'm hoping that Book Chase doesn't suffer from any shortage of time on my part. I'm actually looking forward to getting back into an office setting for a few weeks, and the thought that I'll be seeing a paycheck again for the next little while is kind of nice, too. I just wanted to let everyone know that I will be slower responding to email and the like than I have been in the past.

Now I have to find that old alarm clock...
