Confessions of an Erstwhile Book Pusher

I retired in 2006 after pushing books for twenty-eight years. I'm back at work again, two days a week for four hours a day. I get paid a whopping zero dollars and zero cents per hour. I have gone from Book Pusher to Book Peddler.

Let me explain. I worked for the public library back in the day. Hence, Book Pusher. Now that I'm retired I sell used and discarded books for Friends of the Library--Book Peddler. The money collected is used for buying extras for our branch. In return I get four hours of free, quiet time to work on my novel, Wild Justice.

Many libraries have book sales, so check them out and support your local ones. Everybody wins,
