If You Love To Read…You Should Read This!

In yesterday’s Blog posting I spoke of a new problem I had just developed. I had just accidentally discovered the author Michael Connelly and now I wanted find all of his about 25 books so I can read them in the order as written to follow the character’s development.

If you are a long-time reader of my Blog, you might remember this May 31, 2010 entry about my favorite bookstore in all of the United States…The Book Barn in Niantic, Connecticut.


They have over 350,000 books and their paperbacks are only $1.00 each.

In two trips to the Book Barn last summer, I bought  total of 67 books!

Here’s their website link…

So…back to my problem. I didn’t know if The Book Barn offered this service, so I decided to send them an Email and ask. I told them of my interest in acquiring books by Micheal Connelly and could they ship them to me?

A short while later I got a response from Julia at The Book Barn and she said yes, they could do that. She identified the titles they had in stock…I told her which ones I wanted…I gave her the shipping address…then called her at 860-739-5715 to provide the credit card information to complete the order. I’m getting 13 books for $13 and $4.50 shipping. Total order $17.50!

Then I asked if she could keep an eye out for the other titles I’ll be looking for and she said yes, she could do that. She’ll email me whenever they get a title I’m seeking.

So, if you are having problems locating a book or books…contact Julia at the above shown contact information and she’ll be glad to help you out.

Seems like in today’s world if I ask a company’s employee if they can do something for me, inevitability the answer is “no, we can’t do that!” How refreshing it is to have someone say…”Sure, we can do that!”

Well Done, Julia!

I sure wish there was a Book Barn in every town/city in which I visit!
