Earlier this week, Jon and Adam returned from their spring book buying trip.   We have begun the process of unpacking, pricing and cataloging over 500 boxes of books!  If you’re in the area, you might want to stop by often, as new stock is going out on the shelves daily.    Our May new arrivals catalog will be published within the next week or two, so keep a look out for that.

In the meantime, here are a few photos of the happenings!
