It's time to celebrate our nation's birthday even as we continue our 40th anniversary sale

July offers special opportunities for book lovers of all kinds. We're putting everything in the store on sale. That's right, you can save 25% on all books, maps, prints, and ephemera throughout the store. It doesn't matter what the category is, it's a 25% off. So this is a great chance to take home that special volume you've been wanting. As you know, usually books that are priced more than $100 are 20% off so this is an extra special time for really special items.

Just so you know, toward the end of the month we're going to be gone a lot. We're going to exhibit at the Tennessee Antiquarian Book Fair July 22-23, so we'll be gone then and a few days before that. Also, we have some appraisal work to do that will take us out of the store. Best bets will be Tuesdays and Thursdays but it's going to be wise for you to call to make sure someone is here if you're coming to the store during that time.

Early in the month there will be more opportunities. However, keep in mind that we're open today (Saturday, July 1) but we'll be closed Monday and Tuesday for the Fourth of July holiday. See you again on Wednesday, July 5.

If you're reading this after the holiday is over, just give us a call to make sure we're here. As always, we'd love to see you and we hope you'll come for a visit and allow plenty of time to explore all the way through the store.
