Now in Paperback: 2010’s best

You know who you are. You won’t pay hardcover prices and are willing to wait until “next year” for the paperback. If so, then I’m your huckleberry.

Justin Cronin’s The Passage was, in my estimation, one of the best books of 2010. Destined to be the first in a sprawling trilogy, The Passage¬†envisions a near-future where military scientists lose control of a genetic experiment, putting the future of humanity at stake.

OK. It sounds like a B-movie, but in Cronin’s capable hands, the book approaches the level of masterpiece, providing readers with an engrossing tale whose characters you can’t help but care about.

The big news is that I have a limited supply of autographed copies of a book I (and Andy) recommended highly last year, but now in a more affordable paperback edition.

Come by and I’ll tell you more. Our children’s hardcover picture book sale continues (see Thursday’s post), too, so now is a great time to buy for all the kids in your life – sons and daughters, nieces and nephews, or even your local school.

Children’s Book Sale: We’ve Never Done This Before

Buy 5 books at 50% off! Or 4 at 40% off. Or 3 at 30% less than the list price.

I’ve pulled and stacked all our hardcover children’s picture books right at the front door and priced them to your advantage. Help us with our inventory clearance now as we rearrange the children’s section for the first time in a couple of years.

This is the perfect opportunity to build a child’s library or stock a day-care center or church nursery. And the more you buy, the more you save.

These aren’t “scrubs.” These are our front-line books. Every hardcover picture book is 10% off, but if you buy 2, you can double your discount. Buy 3 and take off even more, up to a top discount of 50% off list.

Yes, that upper discount is below our cost, but it’s worth it for us to pass these prices on to you. We want to order for Christmas shopping season, but unless we move some of these, we won’t be able to reimagine the kids’ section in time for the seasonal rush.

Sure – we’ll be reordering some of these books as soon as you buy them.

So, here are the rules:

In-stock books only – no special orders
No layaways – buy ’em now or lose ’em
Limited to children’s hardcover picture books – no paperbacks included in this sale
Discount limited to 50%, but there is no limit on how many you can buy.
HC picture books typically sell for around $17, but some, like Seuss books, go for $8

So, if you have little ones in your life, now is the time to buy. And during your visit, if you see something else you like, make an offer. I’m feeling generous this week.

Sale starts at 10 a.m. Thursday, August 4, and runs until I say it’s over. I give you fair warning – I have a church group coming at 10, so the sale could be over before the week ends.
