Book Nook in Dalton

The book signing event at Book Nook in Dalton was great! It was slow in terms of books sold, but it's a really neat place – a small shopfront but a store that stretches back and back and spreads over two floors, with two bridges on the upper floor to get from one side to the other. The place is crammed with secondhand books, and on weekdays food is served (which I'm told by other customers is excellent). At various places around the shop there are cafe-style tables, and upstairs large sofas to lounge on.
I just wish Book Nook was located in Chickamauga and not "so far away" in Dalton! Still, my good wife works in Dalton and I bet she'll be popping in every so often now that she knows the place exists. If anyone in the local area is interested, here's a map to get there.
Unfortunately the store doesn't have a website, and my day job as a website designer compels me to contact the store owner and put this right. A regularly updated website, particularly for a store that holds book signing events, can be a great help in attracting customers.
So, I didn't sell many books but I did get to leave some behind for display on the shelves. And I've already agreed to come back on a weekday for a single-author-only book signing, when it's a little busier. Aside from that, it was nice to meet and talk with the other authors present.
Next stop: Calhoun Library on 8th December.
Sorry you "didn't sell many books", Keith. I've watched Liverpool play brilliantly this season, but they haven't scored many goals! I expect to see a Book Nook website shortly! :-)
