Have you ever developed a relationship with your local corner shop owner?
Maybe you pop into a convenience store every day to grab a drink or you walk into the same coffee shop every afternoon.
Leslie and I have developed a relationship with Soyoung Kim, a beautiful, kind, Korean woman who has run the corner store by our house for years.
My wife Leslie has long trained me to buy her fresh flowers every week. And I always buy them from Soyoung’s shop.
Soyoung reads 50 books per year and credits them to helping her form her identity and better understand English when she first immigrated to Canada.
I asked Soyoung to come on 3 Books to share her three most formative books and we grabbed two milk crates and sat down in the garden center at the side of her store.
I hope you enjoy this talk with Soyoung Kim as much as I did.
