Welcome to the Black Bear Blog. My husband and I are the new owners of Black Bear Books in Boone, North Carolina. You can read about us in this article from the Mountain Times.
When I talked my husband into the idea of buying the store, I made him a promise that I would keep my political opinions to myself. However, I made no such promise about all of my other opinions, and so a blog is born!
Right now our lives are all about Black Friday. (I now have a new take on why it's called black.) In my non-existent spare time, I hope to keep you all informed about the happenings at Black Bear Books. We have always loved the store, but we have ideas that we hope will make even better. I'll be writing about those (and soliciting your opinions) as well as what is happening in the literary world, with occasional rants with titles like "Why Kindle is Creepy."
Please come to see us. We'd love to meet all the people who love Black Bear Books as much as we do.
