Hey all, reporting here from BWB week in the lovely (and warm) South Bend, IN. Today we outsiders will be getting tours of the revamped warehouse and doing some warehouse related work. Pictures and stories coming throughout the week, it’s sure to be good. Already, having played a bit of billiards last night with my amigos in acquisitions and a subsequent delicious breakfast at the pancake house, it’s good to be back and sure to only get better (especially at company kickball tonight when Team Gold owns Team Green!)

Hi, I'm Jack and I'm the Chief Blogging Officer and Evangelist over here at Better World Books. I'm the one you'll primarily be reading, with my two personalities: admin (for official posts and normal features) and Jack (for book reviews and things that typically involve my opinion). However, unlike most bloggers, I'm not actually working from my mother's basement, although I don't actually get paid, I just sort of show up to work like Milton in Office Space (ok, this isn't true). I do however, serenade books, like the one in the photo. I went to Holy Cross (the Jesuit school in MA, not the one from "Rudy"), am from NYC, lived in Ireland where I worked for a Fortune 500, was a Music and English major, prefer modernism and Brit Lit, don't believe in the DH (even though I'm a diehard Yankees fan), think sampling (particularly the Grey Album and Girl Talk's work) should be legal, and eat oatmeal every morning at work. Oh, and my real name is John, but don't tell anyone. My fave book is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. The scene in which Gatsby stands with the green light blinking on the dock, never closer to Daisy and never further away breaks my heart every single time and I relish that feeling. It's not often that the written word can hit you in the gut like that.
