Greetings!

Congrats to all the returning students! We wish you a happy, safe and productive year ahead.

This Friday and Saturday (9/3 & 9/4) we are having a BOOK SALE for our email customers ONLY! You must mention this email to get 25% off all hardcovers and 15% off all paperbacks. This sale applies to in-store stock only (no special orders).

There is a ramp-up in book releases this time of year. Some of my favorite new books are coming out this month. Please be sure to purchase or order anything you want early- we are hearing a great deal about "supply-chain" problems. We ordered heavily, and early, but supply may be shaky if you wait too long.....
 
We are grateful for your friendship and thank you for your support of our store and independent bookselling,
