The little bookstore that's bigger on the inside

One last snowy burst in March can’t fool us.  April is nearly here, and with it warmer weather. 

Many thanks to everyone who attended Jason Fregeau’s reading and signing of “The Third Kzin” on Saturday the 23rd.  We had a great time with this debut author.  There are autographed copies of THE MAN-KZIN WARS XV available for purchase or mail order sale.

We are expecting clear skies and temperatures in the 60s for most of this week, which means it’s time to prep our sales carts for display and to roll them out in front of the store each morning.

We have one cart full of beautiful art books, ranging from Edward Hopper to Renaissance treasures to treatises on animation, one cart decked out with educator resources, and a third cart piled high with beach reads and thrillers.  Pricing on these sale books ranges from fifty cents to nine dollars, and store credit may be used on these items to cut your price in half again!

Speaking of sales…
