歡迎光臨TORead【多讀】書店

Updated: Dec 26, 2023

在Facebook經營三個月,終於有了這個比較正式的網頁。抱歉這個網頁姍姍來遲,一來小店是one-man band,二來我不斷在思索著網頁的型式而未有定案。最終在9月19日這天下決心動手,因為只有開始了才會有繼續走下去的可能,就如廣東話那句「洗濕咗個頭」。


不單是網頁,就是我們這家小書店亦然。由當初我一個構思,加上丈夫一個鼓勵,6月12日我在Facebook開了專頁。一路走來,三個多月後的今天竟累積了八百多位來自世界各地的followers,實在是始料不及。雖然我仍是邊走邊摸索,沒地圖沒導航,沒路線也沒終點,像揹著輕省的行裝遊歷,隨遇而安。沿路遇上不同的人們,豐富了我的旅途,也給予我力量一直前行。

漸漸,我有了點頭緒。是的,這是一趟旅行,沒有目的地,只有享受的過程。隨著沿途風光,或徐或疾,有時停下休息、有時結伴同遊,發現從讀書中所得的驚喜。所以,這個網頁也應如此。我們不是冷冰冰的貨架或無人商店,這裡主要讓大家更容易查找書籍,也能提供多個平台方便沒有使用Facebook/IG的讀者。沒放太多資訊是希望繼續維持互動,保留與顧客接觸的機會。感謝你們體諒,希望大家會喜歡這種模式。


後記:關於我們的logo,其實是用於出租圖書的蓋章。最初開Facebook專頁沒頭像就借它一用,誰知從此成為了標記。


After three months of running our Facebook page, we finally have this more formal website. We apologize for the delay in creating this website. Firstly, our little store is a one-person operation, and secondly, I kept pondering over the format of the website without making a final decision. Finally, on September 19th, I made the decision to start because only by starting can we have the possibility to continue, just like the saying in Cantonese, '洗濕個頭sai2 sap1 go3 tau4'(too late to back out, [literal] might as well wash the hair as it is already wet).

Not only the website but also our little bookstore is the same. It all started with my initial idea and the encouragement of my husband. On June 12th, I created a Facebook page. Looking back, today, after more than three months, we have accumulated over eight hundred followers from all around the world, which was truly unexpected. Although I am still exploring without a map, navigation, route, or destination, traveling light, and going with the flow. Along the way, I've met different people, enriched my journey, and gained the strength to keep moving forward. Gradually, I've got some clues. Yes, this is a journey with no destination, only the enjoyment of the process. Along the way, with varying pace, sometimes resting, sometimes traveling together, discovering the surprises that come from reading. So, this website should be the same. We're not just cold shelves or an unmanned store. Our main purpose here is to make it easier for everyone to find books and provide multiple platforms for readers who don't use Facebook/Instagram. We haven't included too much information to continue the interaction and keep the opportunity to stay in touch with customers. Thank you for your understanding, and we hope you'll appreciate this approach.

P.S: Regarding our logo, it was initially used as a stamp for renting books. When we first started our Facebook page, we used it as a temporary profile picture, and who would have known that it would become our emblem.
