Apr 18 Book Sale Results

FYI, the FRL April 17-18 book sale was a rip roaring success! Thanks to everyone who contributed their time to make it success, including everyone who plunked down their hard earned cash for a bag of books. 100% goes to our Humboldt Libraries. Next up: our once-a-year Buck-A-Bag Sale, Aug 7-8. See you there!

Unique Book Marks and Post Cards

frlpcbmDolores Guffey has provided the Serendipity Book Store with a great new batch of unique and classy book marks saved from distressed books that were headed to recycle.

Along with the ‘new’ vintage book marks, Dolores is providing Serendipity with ‘new’ vintage post cards salvaged from the covers of distressed books.

FYI, Dolores Guffey is a local artist who regularly has displayed her book works at the Humboldt County Library, along with her fellow book artists.

Drop by, take a look. Pick up a book mark or post card for yourself, or for that book lover in your life. Thanks, Dolores!

Fresh Stock of Music CDs

frlfebcd05Come pan for music gold on our CD rack outside the Serendipity Book Store. Here is where I discovered that I loved Lyle Lovett (who knew!?), that Nana Mouskouri can sing the blues, and that Bluegrass is actually really good. Still just $1 per disc.
