Welcome to Eva's Used Books, where passion for books meets fun, humor, and a touch of bookworm chaos! I'm Eva, originally from New Jersey: a stay-at-home mom turned book aficionado, and I'm here to share my love of books and the wild journey of owning an online bookstore with you.
It all started 18 years ago when I arrived in Israel, carrying my suitcase filled with dreams and, of course, a collection of treasured books. As time went by, my love for books grew exponentially, and my shelves became a tower of literary wonders. One day, in 2021, amidst the towering stacks of books that threatened to take over my living room, an idea sparked in my mind—why not share these gems with others?
And so, Eva's Used Books was born, a virtual sanctuary for bookworms and literary explorers. But this is no ordinary bookstore. Here, you'll find not only an extensive collection of books but also a touch of whimsy, laughter, and a few bookish misadventures.
Let me introduce you to some of my muses on owning a bookstore:
1. The Unexpected Treasures: When diving into the world of used books, I never know what delightful surprises await. Between the pages, I might stumble upon forgotten photos, old birthday cards, amusing to-do lists, or even beautifully crafted bookmarks. These unexpected treasures bring a touch of magic to each book and remind us of the unique stories they hold, both within their pages and beyond.
2. Conversations with Books: Yes, I confess, I talk to my books. I whisper sweet promises to them, assuring them that they'll find a loving new home where they'll be cherished and admired. There's something strangely comforting in sharing a few words with a book, as if acknowledging the bond between reader and story.
3. The Battle of Gravity: As a proud owner of a mountainous book collection, I've had my fair share of encounters with gravity's mischievous ways. Books seem to have a peculiar talent for falling at the most inconvenient times, landing squarely on my unsuspecting toes. It's a dance of slight annoyance followed by a momentary glimpse into the mischievous nature of the bookish realm. But even with the occasional toe-tapping mishaps, I wouldn't trade my ever-growing collection for anything else.
4. The Gifts of Friends: Owning a bookstore is not just about books; it's about the beautiful connections and friendships that bloom along the way. I'm grateful for the friends who generously contribute to my collection, sharing their own beloved books to find new homes. These acts of kindness remind me that the love of books knows no boundaries and that we're all part of a larger community of bookworms, bound together by our shared passion for stories.
So, welcome to Eva's Used Books, a place where laughter, adventure, and literary treasures await. Explore our virtual shelves, immerse yourself in captivating tales, and join me on this whimsical journey of books and all the delightful chaos they bring. Together, let's celebrate the joy of reading, one page at a time!
And remember, in the words of William Shakespeare, "Though she be but little, she is fierce!" Just like a book, each page brims with endless possibilities and the power to transport us to extraordinary realms. Embrace the magic of books, and let Eva's Used Books be your portal to countless adventures.
Happy reading, my fellow bookworms!
