What's the greatest thing about work and school cancelled and being encouraged to stay inside for your safety? Books of course, am I right?? Classes are cancelled at my kids' colleges and here's real news: my son put ON a coat I sent him and I have a picture to prove it. He didn't have the gloves or hat on but I'm sure he's wearing them right? He's probably spending his day off studying, you think? Thanks for your support! (Liars).
Anyway - I've mentioned I'm on my Jan-ual book binge and because I've been lately forced (boo-hoo) to stay by the fireplace, I'm racing through my stack of reads. Jenny and I are both reading like mad for the upcoming Annual Champagne & Snowflakes Book Recommendation party (Friday, February 8, 1:00 p.m.) - and we have a long and growing list of winners for your winter bingeing. Please call to say you can come - it's our last event at Wesley Street and it's sure to be our best yet, (630-765-7455).
Can you believe it - then our last day open at Wesley Street is Saturday, February 9. Gosh. We need to pack and get moving in time for our "I Love Books - New Store Bash" on Wednesday, February 13, 6:30-8:00 p.m. Please come see and celebrate with us, because the next day - Valentine's Day — we are open to the public.
As most of you know by know, my Store Manager Susan is smarter than me in so many ways. Like counting the money in the register and remembering what day it is. My son Tom described me as a "free spirit" introducing me to one of his friends recently and I frowned, but what the heck. So be it. ANYWAY - Susan says we need way more boxes than we have to move all our stuff and that buying boxes is expensive. So me — the spirited one — I'm like — WOW, let's ask our people to bring boxes and then maybe put books into them if they can stay for 5 minutes? We are packing beginning February 10th (Sunday) and hopefully packing/moving the 11th as well. If you have any to drop off or etc., can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org? We sure would appreciate it.
Book? check. Blanket? check. Cocoa/fun beverage? check.
See you soon, friends.
Please come by in the next days because we continue to have amazing deals on things we won't move. Up to 70% off!
