All right, maybe just all shift long, but you get the general idea. I guess I don't really need to explain why this is great, do I?
I've never been much into sports, in fact not even remotely. The idea of jogging without an oxygen tent every 100 meters is laughable. But I honestly didn't mind hauling around and arranging books which gave me amazingly toned arms.
Something got marked down and before it even hit the sales floor ... need I really spell it out? First to know, first to buy, or something like that.
Come to think of it, being located inside a mall there were no actual windows to dress, yet the entry area and the main dais in the store needed some dress changes nonetheless. Being able to decide on the book arrangements there? Awesome.
Watch out for next week's Part II where I will share the un-fun parts of working at the bookstore.
Have you ever been working at a bookstore? If so, can you relate to my fondly remembered benefits listed above? Maybe there are even more things you'd like to add? Please share.
