For the last few weeks, we have been searching high and low for the books and items that have been requested in our store over the years and we've have considerable success. However, our biggest enemy has been the incorrect number, and so if you have entered a request with us in the past, and have since changed your contact information, please be sure to contact us with an update.

Basement Purge
In the next few weeks, the basement will be going through an update. Be Prepared to see the discount area filled with fresh stock in most subjects and better organized into smaller micro sections like the main floor. The days when one could sit and search for hours through assorted books will be gone. For those who do enjoy the art of rumaging through the basement, the 'as is' section will still be very loosely categorized and was also recently turned over with new stock.

Discounted Sets
Due to recently bought collections, there is a need to move stock. To do so a few assorted sets, such as a 23 volumed set of Canada and its Provinces (rebound, $40) or a 22 volumed Deluxe Edition set of Harvard Classics (was $200, now $100), have been placed at marked down prices out in front of our store. If you want to impress your friends with your collection or simply have some shelf space to fill, be sure to check them out.
