Bookstore Plan for the Remainder of June


Please note: The space for leaving comments looks different on this blog suddenly, and I am unable to leave or reply to a comment. The answer to Dawn's question (in the one comment visible below) is that I am happy to take and fill mail orders. Thank you!

(1) Each Monday I’ll process new book orders. (Many ordered yesterday are on back-order, due to current demand.) Get your title or list of titles to me by Saturday, please. The phone at the shop is working, and I'll be in most days for a few hours to check messages. E-mail or Facebook messages also work.
(2) As requested books arrive, I’ll notify customers who can then come by the shop for pickup. 
(3) Customers picking up special orders may also shop books in stock. 
(4) I will not, however, be open for general walk-in traffic this month. We'll see how July looks when we're closer to it.

Recap: If you let me know what you want me to order by Saturday, I’ll place my order on Monday and generally will have books by the end of the same week – unless you ask for something that is in high demand and currently out-of-stock at the distributor warehouse.

One more note: Please do not bring boxes of donations, as you can see from the photo above that we are overstocked with used books at present and will soon have to find room for new books, as well. And there is a lot of cleaning to do before the OPEN flag can go out.

Thank you for your loyalty and your patience. Stay safe, everyone!

  1. I'm glad you will be able to do some sales, I hope July will be easier, but I don't see how. Do you want book orders you'd have to mail too or is that too much at this moment?
