We are running out of January and moving onto February! And with February coming, we are full of love!!
And if YOU want to show us how much you love us, our little “bigger on the inside” bookstore is on TripAdvisor. Consider leaving us a review!
We’re also bringing back our Blind Date with Books program. Starting in February, near the front of the store, we’ll have white paper bags of used paperbacks with just a few mysterious words to hint at the 4 books hiding inside for $5. Looking for a surprise new book? Check out one of our blind dates!
Of course, we still have some fun events finishing out our January!
