  158. We got our Settler’s of Catan sets at your store….Thank you Eli for your honest, caring and humble manner.

    The interesting thing about your location is that it used to be Colonial Office Supplies many years ago (1970-1980’s) . They had a print shop…My mother was a printer and was friends with the owners so I remember going there as a kid when they would share equipment. In 1983 I chose my wedding invitations there in your building.

    I just thought that was an interesting tidbit of information for you. It is a delight to have this building “still in the family” so to speak.

  159. I am an Amazon fan. Can find just about anything and I have a new or used option.

  160. My hubby and I used to love to go to Borders and hang out reading and drinking coffee. Sadly, it is closed now.

    We mostly use online bookstores!

  162. I love books!! So, I would like to win this. πŸ™‚

  163. I have a love-hate relationship with Amazon; I love the convenience but really dislike not supporting a local bookstore.

  168. I love Redeemed Books in Springfield, Mo.

  171. Being on a limited budget I often frequent thrift stores where I have, over the years, found a library full of good children’s books as well as literary classics.

  172. Not really a book store but my favorite place to buy books is Vision Forum.

  173. I would love to check this organization out!

  174. Um…Exodus Books, of course. Fortunately I live in the Portland area so I can visit the actual store. As a homeschool mom, I love that I can look at curriculum before buying it.
