I started selling used books online in 1999 as sleepygirl2, and opened my first storefront, Sleepygirl’s Used Books, in 2003.  I enjoy my work and have wanted to start a blog for a while because I want to share my love for reading. I find a lot of interesting and funny things about books as I browse and this is the perfect place to share them. I also review books I read, which are often from authors or publishers, but I don’t receive any compensation for the reviews. Sometimes I come across an interesting book that I’ve purchased that I like to share on here as well.

My website is: www.sleepygirlsusedbooks.com.

Contact me at: dawn@bound4escape.com.


I hope you enjoy my blog!

    That’s great. I am hoping to open my own storefront as well. It’s a life long dream, that I am slowly working on.

      It’s not easy if that’s your only source of income but I love it. We started selling furniture along with the books in 2004, which has made it possible for me to be at the store full time. I know it doesn’t sound like they go together, but it has worked out really well.
      I wish you luck. I am a firm believer in following your dreams and enjoying what you do.

      I couldn’t believe I wasn’t following your blog. I don’t get to read other blogs real often. I have to make myself stop and catch up. There’s just too much to do!
