Why is a retired nurse working in a bookstore? Several years ago I completed a very satisfying career as a nurse with communities, hospitals, colleges and for the Utah Army National Guard. I love working for The King's English and am having a grand experience reading everything as fast as I can! It is such a pleasure to help a customer find just the right book for that “difficult to buy for” person. I especially enjoy history, science, historically based novels and mysteries. Children’s and young adult books that deal with issues for specific ages and events are sought after as well. .
