Main Street Books Wraps Up Annual Inventory

by | Jan 4, 2022


Main Street Books’ doors are closed Tuesday and Wednesday as we tackle one of our biggest annual projects: Inventory. That’s right, we are counting every book in the store, one by one. Taking stock of our stock, if you will. 

Even though we can (and do!) track inventory via digital means throughout the year, there’s something special about taking a book in our hands, piling it atop its literary and alphabetical kinfolk, and then carefully sliding it back onto a clean shelf. We always come out of these two whirlwind days feeling tired but accomplished, eager to put that freshly-shelved book into the right reader’s hands. What better way to enter a new year? 

We’ll see you on Thursday. Until then, happy reading!
