Very Happy Holidays to Our Winner - Jessica!
Awards for booksellers? Who would think of that? Well, author James Patterson did, and we are delighted to announce that The Bookies' Jessica DeLoy is a recipient!

Over 2,800 booksellers nationwide were nominated by their colleagues to receive a Christmas bonus from Mr. Patterson. Not only was Jessica chosen as a recipient, she received the highest possible bonus!

We're so proud of Jessica and delighted that her hard work has been recognized, thanks to the generosity of Mr. Patterson, who personally selected all the bonus recipients. You can read more about the bonus program on NPR or on the American Booksellers' Association website.

As you can see from our photograph, Jessica will do almost anything for The Bookies! However, behind the glamour of dressing up like a crayon (!) is a hard worker who constantly goes the extra mile to make life better for customers and colleagues. We are so lucky to have her at The Bookies.

Here are colleagues' recent comments on Jessica:

"Jessica can multitask like nobody's business. She is a self-starter and sees projects through to the end. I can't think of a more deserving person."

"So well deserved!" (Multiple people!)

"She is strives to make customers' pathway as easy as possible. She is loyal, faithful and always willing to pitch in."

"Jessica is the heart of our store."
