The store parking lot is already beginning to melt down to the ground. Just in time for this holiday weekend. As we don't take off for this holiday we will be open our usual hours.
Valentines Day! So many early memories of collecting those flimsy silly punny Valentines at school in each of our own homemade mail boxes. The frizzle of electricity when I saw Ronnie or Bobbie or Todd had signed their name to them. Even if you know that everyone got one from everyone else. Nowadays it's a nice dinner at home, a little special so we are having shrimp, and a couple of extra hugs to remind each other (my husband and I) how blessed we are to be together and healthy. And I baked him a heart shaped gluten free apple pie as a surprise.
We are continuing to go through and empty our myriad storage areas here at the book store. So many times we would buy a lot of books, lets say 10 boxes, then another lot would come in right after and would go on top and so on. So we are doing a lot of excavating these days. And when the weather gets warmer we will be going into our unheated storage areas. It's been fun to see what has come out. Recently, a lot of contemporary religious titles, more cooking and books on Britain galore, left over from the Henry Steele Commager lot we bought 15+ years ago!
A few dealers have their books on sale this month. Some of them are: WWco's (cases 38 &39) mainly Nautical Books are at 60% off; SL (Case 29) literature and poetry First editions; AMS (case 28) science fiction and fantasy.
Waiting for the warm weather, in a month or so, to reopen the $1 garage. We have been restocking it for the past several weeks.
Expecting to have some special Sales by Topic this Spring. As we did with Cooking and Mysteries last year. If you want to be notified send us your email if we don't already have it. We will not be sending out post cards for these sales.
Happy Valentine's Day! And do something fun in the snow!
