Topic “BJs Used Books”

Easter 2008

As with many people, my parents and sibs are spread across the province and Easter is an excuse to connect. We typically rendezvous at my sister's place in Vernon (well technically it's Coldstream, but even the locals don't make much distinction) and this year was status quo. Unfortunately my brother and his wife had some issues they needed to deal with and couldn't make it.

As luck would have it I hit Kelowna in time to see niece's dance team perform. Her studio was in a competition and took first place. This was apparently a bitter sweet moment for the team. It's their last competition of their final year. As with many activities, after they graduate high school there's no way to continue in quite the same way. I must say I was a little lost. Their skill was apparent but the dance moves didn't mean much to me. And I was relieved when at least one of the dance teams didn't use a song featuring a female soprano belting out something heartfelt. Is that a teen-girl thing or dance thing?

Vernon happens to sport a couple of good used book stores, The Book Nook and BJ's Used Books. My Dad and I did our usual expedition to see what we could find. It's a good thing we share, because sometimes we're after the same books!
