Halloween Happy Hour!

October 30, 2011: You are invited to Reading Frenzy today from 2 o'clock to 5 o'clock for a special Halloween Happy Hour!

You are invited to Reading Frenzy today from 2 o'clock to 5 o'clock for a special Halloween Happy Hour! Not only will the lovely Ms. Traci Goodrich be consulting the cards on your behalf for the modest sum of ten dollars, but we'll serve you complimentary tea, and if you utter the code word "pumpkin" at the cash register you will receive 10% off all your Reading Frenzy purchases! Don't forget your Supportland card!

There is all sorts of mischief going on downtown today, including the beautiful Dia de los Muertos parade and celebration sponsored by Someday Lounge from 2 o'clock to 6 o'clock and the much less lovely but sure to be amusing 2011 Zombie Walk which will be staggering through downtown sometime between noon and 4 o'clock.

It seems like summer was barely here and now it's gone. Time to curl up with a nice stack of books and zines and comics. We've got a lovely and growing selection of titles ready and waiting for you. Peruse our September and Octobernew arrivals and restocks on our blog, or become our fan on Facebook to keep up with our weekly arrivals! Have you put out your own publication recently? Come on down Thursday, Friday or Saturday from 11 o'clock to 7 o'clock to set up your consignment account!

Finally, we're co-sponsoring an event with Atomic Books and Quimby's called 2011: Revenge of Print! The rules are simple ~ publish a zine or comic before midnight on December 31st! Need guidance? The Independent Publishing Resource Center is right upstairs and waiting to assist you. We're going to host an end of year event to celebrate everything that was published this year ~ we'll keep you posted!

Long Live Print!

Your faithful proprietress,
