Join us at the Book Den
for California Bookstore Day.
California Bookstore Day is a statewide celebration on May 3, 2014. It’s more than 90 stores in more than 80 zip codes putting their bells on and throwing out the welcome mat.
The headline attraction are the just-for-us books you cannot get on any other day at any other place. These are books published just for California Bookstore Day. You can’t buy them online. You can’t order them ahead of time. And when they’re gone, they’re gone. The only way to buy them is to go into a participating store on May 3rd.
So here are some examples of books we will have at the Book Den:
The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman
HarperCollins Children’s Books $16.00
A limited bound and illustrated copy of a Gaiman short story inspired by Sleeping Beauty, for middle and young readers.
