This is one of the most festive times in the bookshop.
We'll have chocolate, party decorations (that we'll try in vain to keep away from the cats) and a huge SALE!

29% Off Everything in the Shop!
(One exception: Local Literati books. All that $$ goes to the authors!)

Feel free to come in and say things like,
"My Stars! Cinnamon, you don't look a DAY over 28!"

C's "Annual" 29th B-day!

Stage RIGHT: Benefit for Lincoln High School Theatre

Each season, LHS offers a variety of shows for the public.
We'll be contributing 10% of sales all day - but join us from 5:30pm - 8pm, when we'll have a troupe of costumed actors in the bookshop!
