Welcome Readers,

Hello, friends!

Warmer weather is so close; can you feel it trying to squeeze through between snowflakes? Here at the Book Bin, we eagerly await both the beauty of new growth outside and the bounty of new books inside!

March was an exciting month for Alli. She and her husband Russ raised over $8,500 towards childhood cancer research and treatment through St. Baldrick's. To earn these fundraising dollars, they shaved their heads! Thank you to everyone who donated. There is still time if you'd like to donate to the cause; just use this link. Come by the store to ask Alli to take her fuzzy, warm hat off and see the result of this successful fundraiser.

Feel free to jump right into the book reviews with one click; the Newsletter Reviews page has links to all 3 lists (Fiction, Mystery, and Nonfiction). We will continue this format, with our book reviews available on our website, because it allows us to review more books in less space.

Click here for the Google Photo Album this month which does have pictures of Alli and her new hair-do (or hair-don't... haha) as well as pictures of Hardcover Jay, Lily, Text, and Yertle the turtles.

Every single day of every single month of every single year, we consider ourselves lucky to have you as customers and friends. We hope you know how much you mean to us!

Alli and Amy and all the
Book Bin Booksellers
