Friendly Takeover: Part Two @ Next Page Books

A three-day weekend off? Unheard of here at Next Page Books. But it’s true, Tyler and Majda Olson will take over the shop Friday thru Sunday, February 28, 29, and March 1 so I can enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation. Tyler and Majda are prolific readers so they know a thing or two about books and, fortunately, Tyler has run the register before so things should run rather smoothly in my absence. Pop in, say hello, and help them ring up record February sales!
