Hey, I'm Mark.
My wife, Wendy, and I moved to Lebanon right after we got married. We were involved in a lot of different activities in Corvallis and Albany; but we wanted to start our lives together with a little distance from all the busy-ness we had going on.
That was almost 30 years ago.
Since then, we've seen, and been a part of, this unique little community growing into something pretty wonderful.
Wendy and I have 10 kids.
That sounds like a lot, until you meet them. Then, you find them to be the most wonderful and fascinating people you've ever met. They're not a bunch of cook-e-cutter little mark'nwendy critters running around. They are each unique, beautiful, and incredibly talented individuals that I have had the privilege to get to know, and grow along side.
I think that's what makes a bookstore the perfect business for me and my family.
