Events Buzz Monday: Changing The Clocks And Bracing For… Snow?

Here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside, it’s a new month, bringing new challenges, new opportunities, new ventures, and of course, new books and products!  Every day brings in new-to-us pre-read titles from our customer trade-ins, as well as hot-off-the-press releases from publishers large and small.

November marks the thirty-day writing challenge known as National Novel Writing Month, affectionately abbreviated to “NaNoWriMo” by its participants.  The aim is to write every day for thirty days, with a goal of achieving fifty thousand words in that time.  We wish everyone who’s taking part the best of luck and success.

In the meantime, we are booking more events for the remainder of 2019 and rearranging our displays and signage to reflect the upcoming winter holiday season.  Come on in and take the chill off with a complementary cup of coffee, tea or coca, and see what we’re stocking on our shelves.

Here’s our schedule for upcoming events… As a reminder, the majority of our events here at ABSW are free and open to the public. Check out our page on SocialWeb.net!
