Reading Frenzy ~ An Independent Press Emporium

New Arrivals and Restocks: November 2011!

November 23, 2011: It's been an exciting month at the shop! We're stocked up on so many of our favorite authors and artists it's hard to know where to start! It's best to come to Reading Frenzy with an open mind and a spirit of adventure ~ our tiny shop will never offer a comprehensive selection of books in print, but we do have a hand picked selection of several hundred books, comics, magazines, zines and miscellaneous items that we think are top notch. We hope you do too...
