Kick off your Monday right.

Do you want to feel better about today being Monday? Kick off your week with a sense of accomplishment. Here’s how you do it:

  1. Walk over to your children’s picture book section.
  2. Select a title you haven’t seen before.
  3. Read it.

With these few simple steps, you’ve added to your reading history, you could have a new favorite book to sell, but most importantly, you’ve started and completed a project in less than 15 minutes.

This exercise doesn’t have to be limited to Mondays. Employ it any time you need to list something in the “+” column. You’ll feel better… and you’ll be a better bookseller.
