What a busy and transitional time last weekend was! We put away the autumn and Thanksgiving décor and immediately put up the Christmas decorations. My head is swimming a little. The Friends Bookstore began its annual Gift Book Sale on Friday and our little shop was buzzing with activity all day. Several people mentioned that the store was crowded, but that everyone seemed happy. We have plenty of gift-quality books left, so please don’t worry that you’ve missed out if you didn’t make it down last weekend. We will continue to put out new things as we can. Come downtown, enjoy the decorations on the mall and in the park, take a ride on the Holly Jolly Trolley, and come see us at the bookstore.
