"For as long as I can remember, my dream job has always been to work at a bookstore. There is no better feeling than browsing the shelves for that perfect book you have in mind or finding that unexpected treasure you didn't even know you wanted. Each visit is its own unique and memorable moment, its own adventure into endless possibilities. Bookstores have always been my home away from home and Forget-Me-Not Books is no exception! But above all, I love sharing that experience with others. So next time you are in, come say hi. I look forward to reading together!"
