As promised: a little info on how to subscribe to our blog.
When you link to our page at www.bookbarnniantic.com and select the option available mid-page to view our blog, it brings you to the main blog page.
Once you are there, you should look up to your toolbar. Located within the toolbar is a small orange icon with white lines running through it. Click on this, and it should bring you to a text only page with the option of linking to us for an RSS Feed. If you have a Mac., the option to link to an RSS Feed should be in the scroll bar, right after our url.
If you are not familiar with RSS Feed, it’s basically the option to receive an email every time we update with info. about the store.
If you comment on our blog (and we hope you do,) then the comments you leave must first be approved- but should be available for viewing within a day or two of your submitting them. If you ask a question via the blog rather than the email, a response will also be available within a day or two.
Thank you! And please ask if you have any further questions!
Please to note. As many of you know, the availability of cash for buying books varies from season to season. From November 1 through March 31st, you will be able to sell books to the Barn for cash on Saturdays, Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays only. On Thursdays and Fridays you’ll be able to sell for store credit but NOT for cash. Do be aware.
And now, for those of you who think of us as a quaint, folksy, not-quite-in-touch-with-today’s-technology, old fashioned bookstore, we announce that we have a splendid new commercial on our website, visible under the “Neat Stuff” heading, and devised by Daniel White, our inspired website designer and man in charge of reminding us it’s the twenty-first century. Take a look.
And for those of you who PREFER us as an old-fashioned harbor of book-lovers and Luddites, we just got in a nice shelf of the old Gray Walls Press Crown Classics and Falcon Prose Classics, those charming old five shilling standbys of British readers–poetry and prose selections by British authors from Dryden to Surtees. They’re on a shelf in the main lobby and I’m betting they go quickly. Please come buy them before I do.
Hey guys! Just posting to let you know that we’ve been fiddling around with flickr so that we can add some photos to the site! If you’ve taken any neat pictures you think we should see, send them our way! Book.firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re reading the blog, spread the word!
