Bookstore of the Month

We own a bookstore! My partner Alex Williams and I co-own Paperbacks Plus Books in Port Orchard, Washington. Bookstores still exist and serve a fiercely loyal community. It’s a dream come true for Alex to stand behind the counter every day and serve a book community. I love putting together marketing displays and window decorations. What better place to buy your books for the Yule Book Flood?
