Working in a bookstore, as I’ve said before, is a bookworm’s dream. There’s nothing quite like being surrounded by books everyday. However, while I love the endless amounts of non-fiction research materials offered at Magus, I am in my heart, a fiction girl. Which is why I was so excited to see that we had a fiction section.
Though small, the section has a nice selection for all age ranges of supernatural-themed books such as paranormal mysteries, picture books on mythology, young adult urban fantasy, and middle grade fantasy adventure. I had a lot of fun recently reorganizing and redecorating the shelves. There was a certain nostalgic pleasure to going through the books for younger readers and seeing titles I’d enjoyed like The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Artemis Fowl, The Runaway Bunny, and Tamora Pierce’s Inheritance Series. Going through the adult section was an exercise in self-restraint as I saw books I’d loved, books on my To-Read list and books I’d never seen before that I longed to add to the ridiculously large unread pile in my living room.
In the end, it was rather fulfilling to add some shine to a section that will hopefully make a fellow fiction reader just as excited as I am.
