This week you will find select trade fiction on sale for 1/2 our normal low price. These books are on sale for only $1.00 this week. Trade fiction, for those of you unfamiliar with the term, are the larger paperback editions that sell for about $14.00 in a new retail bookstore. That means that you could get 14 books at The Friends Bookstore for the price of one book at those other stores. That's quite a bargain.
