"I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, "Where's the self-help section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose." George Carlin
You won't even have to ask in the Friends Bookstore, since all of our signage is strategically placed to direct you to anything you may be looking for. Arrows on our end-caps point to Biography, History, Classic, etc. Shelves within a section are also labeled wherever appropriate (for example, there is a World War II shelf in the History section). So come in for a highly organized browsing experience. We are staffed with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers, for those who are not into the self-help experience. We are also fully air-conditioned; something you surely want to know this week.
In the spotlight (i.e. organized on special carts) are Hard-cover Fiction, Hobbies & How-To, Travel, Cooking and Gardening.
