Summer is for vacationing and lounging on the beach and reading. We have a section dedicated to engrossing summer reads and will be selling them 3/$1 to celebrate the summer solstice, as well as the end of school, the beginning of vacations, and the joy of reading.
EASTON PRESS BOOKS
We received more than 100 Easton Press books last week. Easton Press sells the world's greatest books, bound in genuine leather and accented with 22kt gold. Each book is a Collector Edition that is as lovely to feel and see as it is to read.
We are selling them for only $20 each! They are an elegant addition to any home or office and make the perfect gift. Father's Day is coming up (hint, hint).
