I spent a most enjoyable evening at the Copperfish Bookstore yesterday. I consider all bookstores as temples of a sort; they’re dedicated to spreading the written word and that makes them very special places. But, stores like the Copperfish are nirvana for the dedicated reader. The owners are independent in every molecule of their being and operation. They select the best materials for their readers, are knowledgeable about literature (current and past), and truly know their customers on a one-on-one basis. The two ladies operating the Copperfish are the consummate book professionals. Every action they take is pointed at making their clients satisfied.
I was fortunate to be asked to speak to their customers about my current novel, Bully Route Home. The audience didn’t disappoint, asking excellent questions and showing keen literary perception. I hope I didn’t disappoint them. If you happen to be in southwest Florida and want to see an old-fashioned business with the single mind-set of customer service, visit the Copperfish.
