Sometimes it gets a little challenging to stay optimistic and motivated this time of year. For many of us the gray skies and cold weather start to take their toll. If that's the way you're feeling, may I suggest a bookstore visit. We have a large selection of self-help and motivational books that may inspire and motivate you! I have also found that reading memoirs about people who have overcome difficult odds often offer the encouragement needed to get you over the hump and back on track to more a positive outlook. It works for me!
Calling all Nora Roberts fans - and I know you're out there - we're having a super sale on Nora Roberts books this week. Apparently Ms. Roberts has written 225 romance and romance/suspense novels and I think we must have copies of most of them! We need the room so, this week only, we will fill a cart with Nora's books and price them at only 25 cents each!
Our January Bag-of-Books Sale was a big success and lots of wonderful books found new homes. Don’t despair if you missed the book sale! There will be another one in June.

It’s possible that for $10.00 you could walk out of here with enough books to get you through to spring, and isn’t that a lovely thought!
