EngagedThe highlight of the day: a marriage proposal in the store.  We were a part of the scheme.  Yesterday, a favorite book was purchased: a first edition of Taylor Caldwell’s Dear and Glorious Physician.  And, from Strong Bindery, a hollowed-out book, a Rainbow Classic edition of Gulliver’s Travels, proved to be of near-equal size for the Caldwell dust jacket.  Today, at the end of a scavenger hunt, the couple arrived at Loganberry Books and a clandestine pass-off of the book with engagement ring inside occurred.  Couple browsed, but when I asked if I could help them find anything, I was only too delighted to take them back to the sanctuary and hand over a stack of interesting Taylor Caldwell titles to peruse.  Later, we got to congratulate the happy couple.  As Christine put it, they were too adorable for words.
