After much deliberation, I've decided that I am closing my bookshop to the general public. The only reason why I kept my business was as a pretense to live among humans, and as a grand excuse to keep my bosses from complaining about my ever growing book collection. Having pesky customers coming by is something I will not miss.
Instead, the establishment will be rebranding (as they say) to a reading library. You may come browse, sit, read, and drink some delicious, hot tea. But only upon prior request or invitation. And books will most definitely not be checked out and removed from the premises.
Here's a fun question - do you have any suggestions as to what I could dress up as for All Hallow's Eve?
