This coming week marks our last week in business. Many people have asked what they can do to help, and honestly right now what will help us most of all is if people take inventory and shelving off of our hands! Please, if you need or know of anyone or any organization that needs bookcases---send them my way as soon as possible. These are fantastic, custom-made bookcases. They’re durable and beautiful and would work in a home, a library, a school, or any retail environment.
Progressive sale next week will work as follows:
Monday 8/22: Everything $6.00 or 60% off, whichever is lowest
Tuesday 8/23: Everything $5.00 or 65% off, whichever is lowest
Wednesday 8/24: Everything $4.00 or 70% off, whichever is lowest
Thursday 8/25: Everything $3.00 or 80% off, whichever is lowest
Friday 8/26: Everything $2.00 or 90% off, whichever is lowest.
All week: USED books are all $1.00 or 50% off, whichever is lowest.
During this sale we cannot accept credit cards or debit cards for purchases less that $15.00. LOTS of books still left in fiction, classics, biography/memoir, 8-12 y/o readers, teen readers, parenting, world religions, and diet/health/fitness. Pickings are getting slim, but still there, in history, picture books, mind/body/spirit, cook books, poetry, science and nature. The earlier you come in, the better your chances are of finding lots of good books. Consider purchasing a supply of children's books and donating them to your favorite school or library.
Remember: all sales are final and we cannot hold an item for any reason.
Next week we are open 10:00 - 6:00 (expect for Tuesday, opening at 10:30). Our last day is August 26.

July 25, 2011 -- 6:30 p.m.
CHANCE OF SUN unfolds the story of an Oregon girl coming of age in the 1970s and 80s, navigating her way through pick-up trucks, dive bars, higher education and backwoods trails before finding a place she belongs. In 23 essays set over 20 years, Findling presents a fresh and distinct literary voice.
Beginning with her childhood in Coos County, Findling relates a rural unbringing spent walking beaches and hiking in the woods with her forester father, attending summer camp just over the hill from the Oregon Country Fair, road-tripping to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival with schoolmates, and learning about the fickleness of love in campgrounds, beer joints and on the University of Oregon campus. Yet, following a move to Oregon’s biggest city after college, Findling lost her way and her connection to Oregon’s landscape, becoming caught up in the drugs and booze that flowed so freely in Portland’s restaurant scene. But it was Oregon that helped Findling find herself again later, this time on the east side of the mountains, where she found clarity in High Desert trails and a wide-open sky, as well as life’s most grounding phenomenon—love.

A great event for young readers!
In a town of storytellers, Mary suffers through her third year of Novice Word Weaving. Mary thinks her troubles are over when she meets a gnome-elf who grants her a wish. But instead of weaving a better story, she's weaving strange yarn charms to accompany her still pathetic tales.
Kai Strand's THE WEAVER is a middle grade novel that offers a little fantasy and a lot of storytelling.
