"What's significant about this isn't that Stefani hand-sold my book, or that any indie bookstore did. It's more the fact that customers at an indie bookstore trust the booksellers."–Cathy Salustri, author of Backroads of Paradise: A Journey to Rediscover Old Florida 

Last week the iconic Tampa, FL bookstore Inkwood Books announced that it would be closing at the end of March. The news prompted an outpouring of community support, ranging from grief to "good luck for the future" to some truly original emoticons her ladyship, the editor, didn't even know existed.

Inkwood BooksIt also, as such things are wont to do, prompted many people to share their memories and feelings of why the long-standing independent bookstore was so important in their lives.  "As a literary and Florida writer, Inkwood is one of the main reasons anyone ever read a Connie May Fowler book," wrote none other than Connie May Fowler herself.  "Working there inspired my husband and I to open my own bookstore" wrote a former staff member.  "You guys were my daughter's first bookstore" said someone else. The columnist Cathy Salustri wrote an extended and heartfelt tribute to the store in the Tampa edition of Creative Loafing, recounting her journey into the wide weird world of promoting her first book with Inkwood's owner Stefani Beddingfield as a willing and generous guide. "What's significant about this," she sums up, "isn't that Stefani hand-sold my book, or that any indie bookstore did. It's more the fact that customers at an indie bookstore trust the booksellers."

Backroads of ParadiseThat trust is evidence of something deeper than just counting on getting a good book recommendation. It's a connection. A connection between you and someone who recognizes you. Not because you've typed in the correct username and password, but because they remember you. They remember the last time you were in the store, the things you talked about. They remember you have a son who has just gone into the Marines. That you love Alice Hoffman, or that your dad loves a good Tim Dorsey romp. 

When a bookseller says, "I thought of you when I read this book -- I think it's your kind of thing," they aren't saying so because of the accumulated cookies in your internet browser, or because they've tapped into the weird and creepy digital overlord that knows you just bought organic apples at the supermarket, but then caved and bought the Wise cheddar popcorn also, and senses an opportunity for pushing ads for yoga classes and healthy detox drinks onto all your phone apps.  No, they are handing it to you because it made them think of YOU. Full stop. In the end, an algorithm can only show you where you've already been. But if you want to find something new, or just don't know what you are looking for, algorithms aren't much use. Journeys into uncharted territories require a guide. Someone you have a connection with. Someone you can trust.

Rayne & Delilah's Midnite MatineeJosie

 

Here’s the thing with dreams—and I’m talking about the kind you have when you sleep, not the kind where you’re finally learning to surf when you’re fifty: they’re carefully tailored to the only audience who will ever see them, which is you. So I’m not big on telling people about my dreams for that reason.
That said, there’s this recurring dream I have. It comes around every couple of months or so, but I wish it were more often be- cause it’s awesome, and when I wake up from it, I lie there for a few moments, wishing I could reenter it. In this dream, I’m at a familiar place. Often it’s my grandma’s house.
Her house was tiny. It always smelled like quilts and oatmeal cookies and that musty odor when you first turn on a window- unit air conditioner after winter. It had a cellar that smelled like cold dirt even during the summer, where she kept store-brand cans of creamed corn, jars of home-pickled dilly beans, and two-liter bottles of Diet Coke. In my dream, I descend into the cellar. I find a door leading to a passageway. I go in. I follow it for a long way; it’s cool and dark, and I’m not afraid. Eventually it opens into this grand, palatial, brightly lit marble room. There are columns and fountains, and the air smells like f lowers. I push forward and find room after room. It’s all grand and glorious, beautiful and perfect. It’s not what you would expect to find.


But there it is, and for those few minutes (I’ve heard that dreams are never more than five minutes long, which I totally don’t believe, but whatever), you get to experience the most unexpected grandeur, running like a rabbit warren under my grandma’s little house in Jackson, Tennessee.
And then I wake up, the thrill of possibility and discovery drifting upward off me like steam. It’s such a delicious feeling. Just stay a little longer, I say. But it doesn’t.

Recommended reading from Southern Indie Booksellers


The Huntress by Kate Quinn
From the author of The Alice Network comes a haunting post war story of a battle haunted journalist turned Nazi hunter, a female Red Army bomber pilot in exile and young American girl trying to figure out her path in life. The story shifts between past and present as they pursue Nazi killer that haunts them both. The reader will wonder who is the huntress and who the hunted. It is a story of love and loss, trust and betrayal, past and present, and revenge and redemption. Great for lovers of historical fiction, mystery and detective novels.

The Huntress by Kate Quinn ($16.99*, William Morrow Paperbacks), recommended by Avid Bookshop, Athens, GA.

 

 

 

 



The Secret of Clouds by Alyson Richman
What an impact a loving and caring teacher can make on the life of a child. This is definitely a love letter to all the amazing teachers who go above and beyond each and every day to teacher our precious children.  Teachers have that special something that digs deep to bring out the best in each child. Alyson Richman does it again. A sure winner.

The Secret of Clouds by Alyson Richman ($16.00*, Berkley), recommended by Copperfish Books, Punta Gorda, FL.

 

 

 

 

 

 



American Heroin by Melissa Scrivner Love
Wow, this starts with a bang and doesn't let up as Lola consolidates her power on the L.A. drug trade that she first grasped in the previous book in the series (Lola). With a cold blooded detachment she does whatever needs to be done to protect her family, neighborhood, and soldiers. Written in a tough, gritty, style that brings to life the streets of L.A. in ways that reminded me of James Ellroy and Michael Connelly, Scrivner Love has crafted a winner that I'm sure will be nominated next year for McIntyre's mystery award, The Beltie Prize.

American Heroin by Melissa Scrivner Love ($27.00*, Crown), recommended by McIntyre's Fine Books, Pittsboro, NC.

"Zentner has a gift for creating memorable characters. This is a charming and heartwarming story about two best friends making big life decisions and reluctantly leaving childhood behind. It will leave you feeling nostalgic for your high school years."
--Amanda, Page 158 Books, Wake Forest, NC


Rayne & Delilah's Midnite Matinee by Jeff ZentnerFrom the Morris Award-winning author of The Serpent King comes a contemporary novel about two best friends who must make tough decisions about their futures—and the TV show they host—in their senior year of high school. Every Friday night, best friends Delia and Josie become Rayne Ravenscroft and Delilah Darkwood, hosts of the campy creature feature show, Midnite Matinee, on the local cable station TV Six. But with the end of senior year quickly approaching, the girls face tough decisions about their futures. Josie has been dreading graduation, as she tries to decide whether to leave for a big university and chase her dream career in mainstream TV. And Lawson, one of the show’s guest performers, a talented MMA fighter with weaknesses for pancakes, fantasy novels, and Josie, is making her tough decision even harder. Scary movies are also the last connection Delia has to her dad, who abandoned the family years ago. If Midnite Matinee becomes a hit, maybe he’ll see it and want to be a part of her life again. And maybe Josie will stay with the show instead of leaving her behind, too. As the tug-of-war between growing up and growing apart tests the bonds of their friendship, Josie and Delia start to realize that an uncertain future can be both monstrous…and momentous.
