Jones basically has my own dream job (besides being a writer): she owns an indie bookstore called The Bookshelf, in beautiful Thomasville, Georgia, not too far from Tallahassee, Florida.Annie shares what it was like to start off as a bookshop owner with zero business background, and the things she had to learn on the sales floor about managing a team, deciding what her community liked — and didn’t like — to read, and at the end of the day, how to keep the lights on doing something that she confesses is more work than she ever imagined, but wouldn’t trade for the world.Notes:Annie on TwitterThe BookshelfThe Bookshelf on InstagramAnnie's podcast, From the Front PorchTsh on Twitter & InstagramWomen’s Work on InstagramMyers-BriggsCrossing to Safety, by Wallace StegnerWildwood, by Colin MeloyA Wrinkle in Time and Austin Family Chronicles, by Madeleine L'EngelThe Ensemble, by Aja GabelYes, Please, by Amy PoehlerIn the spirit of this episode—if you'd like to order one of her book recommendations, reach out to The Bookshelf!Thanks to sponsor Hello Fresh—get $30 your first week with promo code womenswork30!Read more »
