As you know, we are a used book store. While many people like come in and browse around the store waiting for a book to “jump off the shelf” at them, others come in looking for a particular title. In order to help build up our inventory of requested books, we are running a contest, similar to the one we ran last year at this time.

We are always looking for good blogs about coffee, books, and other fun topics. Last week we found an interesting blog about books and authors (www.lenasledgeblog.com) written by Lena Sledge. Specifically we found her post on Interesting Facts about Authors and Books to be really fascinating.

Since The Bookend Café is closed for the winter, many of our regulars have been forced to drink coffee at home (gasp!). While we always hope you’ll visit us for all your coffee needs, we understand that from time to time, you’ll need to make coffee with your good old drip coffee maker. According to our friends at www.talkaboutcoffee.com, drip coffee makers are the single most popular small kitchen appliance in the US.
