We're  on Rare Book Cafe today and we'll be sharing a look at some of our recently acquired collection of aviation books. We hope you can join us.

Rare Book Cafe is a new live streaming program accessible on the Internet at You sign in with your Twitter account, then search for Rare Book Cafe under Scheduled programming.

Just click on the link. After it's all over, you can still tune in to the replay at the same link.

We would be remiss in not mentioning that we're in the midst of Our Thankful Sale during the month of November. Everything under $100 is available at 50% off its regular price. Everything over $100 is available at 20% off. That includes books, of course, but also maps and prints. If we have time, we'll show you some of our extensive collection of maps as well.

The Rare Book Cafe is sponsored by the Florida Antiquarian Book Fair and affords book lovers an extraordinary opportunity to learn about and enjoy seeing rare books and talking to antiquarian book dealers. It's the next best thing to being at a book fair.
