Did you know that periodically (and by periodically I mean several times a week,) we travel all over the state to pick up interesting lots of used books to bring back to the store? For instance, a few weeks ago we picked up a huge lot of Religion and Art books, some of which were in Russian. Two weeks ago we picked up an enormous bunch of books on Environmental Science, Botany and Entomology. And just last week we grabbed a lot full of Egyptology. Our store’s inventory is always changing and expanding, so be sure to visit as often as possible, because these lots we pick up in our down time are in addition to the thousands of books we buy on a daily basis- and we buy a wide and varied amount. Anything from James Patterson and Luanne Rice, to Neil Gaiman (the entire set of Sandman came in TWICE in the last month) to specialized Science, Art and Cooking.
Next Monday night we will be heading out to grab a lot of about 3,000 like new Mystery, Science Fiction and Horror. When we pick up books like this we usually go and scan the lot first… (can you say field trip?!) and then schedule a date to go back for it. Then we round up a group of eager Barnfellows to go and box box box. Usually we’ll have new stock out and priced within several days of receiving, so you can start scanning the store for this material as soon as Tuesday afternoon.
Hope to see you soon!
