New section and general organization!

I went away for a month to East and West coasts, hiking in BC, family visit, etc. It was wonderful to get away and now feels like it was all a merry dream. But so much changed while I was away and there is much excitement at 211- a new system, organization, a tech support team, and a staff picks section. Now Rory trains me on the ins and outs of the store, where I once trained him; thus the young Grasshopper succeeds the master.

The new software tells us things like how many titles we have on hand and on order, in what section is a particular book, etc. Stuff that used to make me scratch my head. Before, it was always me taking customers on a tour of the store looking for their title and hoisting other recommendations upon them. I'll still do that though, if you want me to.

We now have a classic fiction section, so you can find new copies of your old favorites. We probably mentioned this before, but Penguin has a line of classics with covers by comic artists. They look amazing. Here's Sammy Harkham's cover for Kafka's Metamorphosis:
