There are lots of reasons to visit the bookstore this week. Special sales and a great selection of books is par for the course at The Friends, but we have some particularly interesting offerings right now.
We are excited to be able to offer all three of the 2009 Reading Together author, Rick Bragg’s books this week. Thanks to the Reading Together program we have multiple copies of All Over but the Shoutin’, Ava’s Man, and The Prince of Frog Town. If you have not had the chance to read these engaging memoirs, now is your opportunity to get your copies for only $2.50 each. You will not only be getting a great read at an excellent price, but you will be helping to support the Reading Together program with your purchase.
Last week we put out a cart of history books. These books are mostly about 19th and 20th century European history. Although many books sold last week, a very large donation has made it possible for us to restock and offer you even more this week.
Romance novel enthusiasts this is your week to stock up on romantic fiction. Select books are sale priced at 2 books for 25¢! Check out the cart in the aisle marked Romance, for romance at this super bargain price.
Also of interest this week is a selection of videos on assorted topics including gardening, travel, cooking, opera, and others. We have this interesting selection of videos because the library is switching over to DVD’s like all the video stores have. But if you still have a VCR this is your chance to pick up some very cheap videos on some very interesting topics.
Finally, the annual Friends Bookstore June Sidewalk Sale is on Saturday, June 6 from 9:00 until 3:30. That is the first Saturday in June and Super Saturday in downtown Kalamazoo. Join us at Central Library under the portico for our giant book sale. All books are 10¢ a book or $2.00 for a grocery-size bagful.
