Another month is coming, and you know what that means: A new reading challenge!
This time, we’ll be reading books that are near and dear to my heart — ones that feature folks who either own or work in small shops. These could be bookshops (my favorite type of shop!), flower shops, mom-and-pop grocery stores, etc.
As in previous months this year, it doesn’t necessarily have to be the leading character who owns/works in the small shop. It could be their best friend’s neighbor’s mother-in-law who only shows up in one tiny scene.
When you post your books, please let us know the character’s name and what type of small shop they owned or worked in.
Here are some small-shop books I’ve enjoyed relatively recently:
The Sea Glass Sisters by Lisa Wingate – Sea Shell Shop
Overshadowed by Vannetta Chapman – Hardware Store
Holiday Amnesia by Lynette Eason – Small-town Gas Station
March’s reading challenge celebrates Artists and Musicians!
