HAPPY SPRING/SUMMER 2018!
Who doesn’t love the blooming of spring? It
always brings a smile — that same kind of smile
my amazing team of Diane’s Dazzling Divas
brings to your faces. I am so proud of them,
each and every one of my hard-working Divas,
so let me introduce them:
MARIA, in her 16th year, is our guardian of youngest readers, reminding each and every new parent that, yes, books now! And she is also the custodian and creator of our fabulously popular Book of the Month Club. Call Maria now and sign up! CHEERS, MARIA!
THERESA, in her 16th year, always has the answers to every question, or she will find out! Theresa puts those disparate pieces of the bookstore together every time and keeps the wheels turning in harmony. Ask Theresa anything! And she is also our guru of mysteries and thrillers! CHEERS, THERESA!
JOANNIE recently celebrated her 14th anniversary and I count on her as we struggle with the incredible number of books in the store, to keep them flowing in and out, so you can find our selection exciting and not overwhelming! CHEERS, JOANNIE!
JEANNIE celebrates her 12th anniversary in May and she thankfully wears our tech hat, our author-event hat, and our non-fiction hat! Visit our fabulous website, come to our Author Events, and talk books in the store with Jeannie. She wants you connected with Diane’s Books in every way! CHEERS, JEANNIE!
VERNA, in her 12th year, is our trusty staff member who comes when we call! When we need another pair of hands, we phone Verna, and she always walks in with a big smile on her face. Lucky us! CHEERS, VERNA!
MARY recently celebrated her 10th anniversary and all of you with Middle Grade or Young Adult readers know and love Mary! You count on her and our middle-grade and young-adult readers do, too. Mary is the guru and what a reader she is! CHEERS, MARY!
DANIELLE recently celebrated her 10th anniversary and she is our amazing, oh, so talented creator of gorgeous wagons, bundles, and gifts of all shapes and sizes! What can Danielle wrap up for you? What can Danielle create for you? CHEERS, DANIELLE!
CHRIS, in her 8th year, is the guru of and custodian of our early readers. Chris, our teacher, will woo your emerging reader with her expertise and love of children. CHEERS, CHRIS!
LISA recently celebrated her second anniversary and she brings her cooking expertise to our cookbook section. So talk to Lisa about cookbooks. Lisa is also at the desk, helping juggle all those mysterious pieces that challenge us each and every day. CHEERS, LISA!
WHAT A TEAM! HOW LUCKY I AM! HAPPY READING EVERYONE! HAPPY READING OUT LOUD! AND, OF COURSE, HAPPY SPRING!
