Stack Of New Books Can’t Be Taller Than Harper

Self-Isolation Trend #5

For businesses that are allowed to stay open during the shutdown, curbside pickup is a new trend that is helping some businesses survive during these times and to help keep employees and customers as safe as possible.  I was catching up on The New York Times Book Review and discovered when I went to place an order for the latest Amos Decker book in the David Baldacci Memory Man series that my local bookstore, which is closed to customers, was offering curbside pickup.  I immediately placed an order online, received a text the next day that the order was ready and off we went in our masks to the bookstore (one of us looking more fashionable than the other) and collected our books on a cart outside the door.  I’m not sure if it was a good idea for me to discover I could still pickup books in the same day, so I’ve decided that a reasonable limit is that the stack of books cannot be taller than Harper.

  1. Adorable Harper to the rescue one again! And what a wonderful way to support your bookstore. The Paul Krugman book looks particularly interesting.

    1. Thank you!🐾🙂 I keep searching for those little things that offer a moment of peace and, although I never imaged a world of virtual book shopping combined with curbside pickup, I loved picking up those books and Harper could finally go to the bookstore with me.📖🐾🙂

    Glad Harper is following safety protocol! 🙂 ❤
    Glad you can still get your books locally – a great idea and service, because as we know, books ARE essential!

    1. Thank you!🐾😁 I thought Harper loved her new look, but shortly after this photo she stole her bandana off the table and thought it was a new chew toy. So glad to read you agree books are in the absolutely essential category. I have completely struggled with grocery delivery/pickup, but I LOVED my book curbside pickup and am working on my next book shopping list.📖😁

        Remember the public service ad on TV? “Reading is FUN-damental!”

      2. I did not remember, but loved watching one of the 70s ads on YouTube with the song “she’s got the whole world in her hands.”📖🙂

    Ha! A good limit to set – I wish I had your discipline when it comes to books. How is In Five Years? That’s on my list.

    Haha, but is that taller than Harper on all fours, or if she is on her hind legs? Could easily slip in a few more volumes…

    1. 😁Thank you!🐾😁 Now that Harper knows she can go to the bookstore with me during our curbside pickup days, she believes a book and car ride a day should be essential to support the bookstore and improve our attitudes.🐾😁
