Life Beyond Books: Peter & Chelsea Football Club

Thursday,January 28th, 2021


Over the past year, you've gotten to know our booksellers a bit better as we shared our favorite books, recent reads, recommendations, and, of course, photos of our work-from-home spaces and furry coworkers.  But while we're quick to share our bookish interests, we seldom take the time to share about our other hobbies, interests, and areas of expertise, and with such a quirky group of people, you'd better believe those non-bookish pursuits are both varied and intriguing!  So we thought we'd ask each staff member to share a new kind of story, one about their life beyond books.  First up is Peter, store owner and lifelong fan of Chelsea Football Club.

Narratives of World War II

The extraordinary sacrifice and brutal horror of the second World War has spawned countless novels essays and stories. These books on war are not driven by a voyeuristic curiosity of conflict, but by a desire to understand who we are and what we, or what some of us, are capable of, both in terms of acts of heroism and selflessness and unthinkable cruelty.

By Design

“Design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works.”  —Steve Jobs

Design is both art and science - something is created by an artist or designers vision.  A tool, an item, an experience.  Also requiring the observations of a science, we're designing to meet a need, to solve a problem.
