Hi Readers!

I am apologizing for this blog's absence for about 2 weeks.

As many of you know, I am just a High School Student..

And as far as I know all students know that October is Exam/Finals Month.

We need to submit tons of projects, reports, notes and prepare for the 2nd Quarterly Exams.

So, I hope all of you will understand!

Today, is Sunday!

So will talk about another awesome shop!

Wonder what shop it is?

Let's find out!

During the day before #JennAndLissaInPH I confirmed that I will not be able to attend Jenn's booksigning...

and I was so sad because I thought I woudn't get my book signed...

but God is Good!

As I was searching my feed in Instagram. I passed by @travelreaders' post

which indicates that she is already preparing for the booksiging and she is still accepting orders!

I was so happy so I immediately placed my order!

So today we'll talk about @travelreader !

Roxanne Lucero is the owner of @travelreader

                      (c) owner

Roxanne became a friend of mine. She is very very funny. And she tries her best to fulfill her promises. I ordered The Geography of You and Me from her, but because of the rush we thought that she wouldn't find a copy, but because of her, I got my copy and its Signed!

So of course, I had an interview with her for you guys!

"What pushed you to sell books?" I asked.

"I pursue selling books because I want people to get into reading. It started with my friends actually, they are so curious why I instantly change my currently reading book. And how my mood depends on the books. Then wallah! Came an idea of selling books to them and to the instagramers. 

For the signed books, I choose to sell them because of the knowledge that not everybody who is a fan of that certain author. Due to work and school or other personal reasons some cannot really go so I take a step to help them.

Selling isn't all about gaining profit, it is also an act of helping others" she replied.

"Why did you choose Insatgram account for your shop instead of sulit?"

"I choose to put my shop's account in insta because most of the teens are there and most of the teens I know are into reading. Another reason is I don't have a sulit account. I don't feel signing up in that account"

"At first, were you hesitating to continue selling books on IG?"

"Yes of course. We all know how dangerous online shopping can be, but still I pursue it because I want to achieve my goal to help."

"What do you think is the reason why you're shop has been receiving positive feedbacks based on your posts?" I asked.

"As a tourism student it is in our nature to build relationships with clients because we are frontliners. Also, as I build relationship to my clients the more I understand the situations or problems they encounter like, they cannot pay at the exact date or they'd cancel order.  I also ship early and I accept personalized signed books." 

"What do you love most about selling books?" 

"What I love in selling books is influencing them to read more. I also like sharing thoughts about books with my clients especially the feels. But most importantly I like to help them in their bookish needs." She replied.

"What do you hate most about selling books?" 

"What i hate about selling books are the bogus buyers and bogus suppliers. I hate lying people. Hatest scenario is when you are being patient in giving them time to pay then suddenly they'd disappear in a blink of an eye."

"What do you think makes you unique from the other shops?"

"My shop is featuring signed books. Personalized signed books. I love selling those because I want my clients to be as happy as I am when my books are signed. Unfortunately not all can go to signing events so I made a decision to help them get their books signed even though they'll not buy the books from my shop."

"Have you received negative feedbacks before? How do you handle it?"

"As of now, I haven't recieved a negative feedback. I know that sometime in my business career my shop will encounter this problem, but I prepare for it and will think of the ways to handle it."

"How did you manage all the hard work being a book seller?" 

"It is really frustrating especially on meet ups. But all I have in mind is helping ang doing my job. I take things as challenges in order for me to achieve goals in life. Being a book seller is tough, but not all things are easy in life so I took it as a challenge that needs to be accepted."

"If you can change a thing with your shop what would it be? And why?" I asked.

"I'd change my selling scheme. I want to have more books to be sold. Not only preloved and signed but also regular and rare books. Well first I need to have a book supplier who I can trust. Second I need  advertisments too." 

"If you could bring three books (you, being a reader) in an island, what would you bring?" 

"I'd bring a bible, my journal and my book of poems." She replied.

"And why?" 

"Bible because if I am in an island alone, all I can talk to is God and in him I am restless and I feel safe.

My journal. I want to reflect in my life. In everything I've done for the past years and find things that I can improve.

Book of poems. I love poetry and I write everything in my life through poems. Through this I can see what is beyond and behind my words and how deep my perspective is. And defintely I'll write more as I experience things inside the island" she ended.

So, that's it!
