Door opens, Ding goes the walks negative energy.
"Opening a bookstore in a recession, do you think that's a good idea?" The blank stare of negativity stares at me.
I smile. "Of course it's a great time."
Negativity stares some more. I wonder what it wants...

The other day wind blew in some negative energy...
" You do realize Borders just closed?" The blank stare returns.
I smile. "Yes, I know that."
Negativity stares some more. I wonder what it means...

Sure, times are tough. When is the good time or right time to open a business? Or paint a picture? Write a book? Build a house? Buy a house?

"Live the life you imagined." Henry David Thoureau said that. And that is what I am doing. I am driving to work every day with a smile. I am able to touch and hold books daily. I am able to share the love of books with everyone that walks in the door (negative energy need not come in). I am able to create book clubs, writing nights, writing work shops, open mic nights. I am able to inspire creativity and get inspired in return.

My grandfather set the phrase...PACE. Positive Attitude Changes Everything. With a positive attitude I opened Ugly Dog Books.

"Ding" goes the bell..."Hi, Welcome to Ugly Dog Books."

Diary Of A Whimpy Kid

Ugly Dog Books will have copies of Cabin Fever!  The book will be out in November.

Reserve your copy me, 508-226-0100

Pinch Me this for real????

Every day I am driving to work with a smile.  I am living my dream and it feels so good!
From the time I could hold a pencil, open a book, make a sentence I have loved the world of books.  Writing and reading...worlds were open to me, characters came alive.  I read stories and created stories.
And now I get to share it with others.  My passion for the written word.
Ugly Dog Books is a place that I dreamed up in my head a few years ago.  Driving with Kurt one day, I said, I want to open a new/used bookstore.  With those words spoken my dream took form.  Today I am happy to say UGLY DOG BOOKS IS OPEN for business.

If you love to read, love to write this place is for you.  ( I have specialty items too...puzzles, games, cards, t-shirts, bags...)
I offer new and gently used books.  $4.00 soft cover and $8.00 hard cover with half going to a charity.
New books are here and can be ordered.  10% off all new titles.
Books just released (hardcover) will be 25% off.
A writer's room is available for anyone to come in and write.  Free Wi-Fi.

Stop in to look around and say HI.
