Karen owns the book store now, not Cindy.

I went in and bought a few oldies but goodies the other day. There is a nice selection of kids books, tons of fiction.

No, the 10 current best sellers weren't there but the new owners will probably figure out how to get the best sellers soon considering there are daily
flights to Belize from the US.

Bookstores must be very profitable......they bailed without giving proper notice to their landlord....and contrary to their lease (I know I wrote it)! They also left all utility bills unpaid and a condo that hadn't been swept since they moved in by the looks of things! I don't think the geography of being on an island is the problem they need to fix.

Amanda, if you are looking for a particular book (I once read on one of your posts you like to read a lot I believe) I will gladly pick 2 of them up for you, I will be in the states soon.

Thanks Krazy K, I but I buy my books on-line with Amazon.com.

When I go to the states I usually take 1/2 day to browse a good book store too to get my "fix."

I love to read, but don't seem to have a lot of time to this right now.

Thanks again

gotcha. If you change your mind and you want any of those top 10 books, just let me know as I am going very soon. You could still order them on Amazon and I'd gladly bring them back. Take Care.

I was seriously interested in buying the store but the numbers didnít look right and the stock seemed all wrong. I still think a properly run Ė and stocked Ė bookstore would be a good thing. After all the grief involved in starting a business in Belize it seems like baling after just five months is a pretty short time to decide itís a mistake. Whatís the skinny?

Well, I'll jump back here to set the record straight on a few things...

the little bookstore turned a profit the third full month in business, which is phenomenal in ANY market...that's why it sold and had a more than a few truly interested paarties

as for leaving without proper notice to the landlord...he was advised THREE months before we left and we continued to advise. We did NOT leave utility bills unpaid and the condo was clean and we even paid a local lady to come in and clean so that it would be ready for the next tenant. We left coffee pot, blender and many kitchen items behind for the next tenant.

It is amazing how many folks will gossip, speculate and flat out lie on this bulletin board!

We left some really good friends and good times behind on the island, and well, some not so good folks...but you will find that anywhere.
