Black Friday Book Sales

It's no surprise that Amazon has had best sales numbers ever. Book buyers wonder what this will do to independent book stores and if individual customers can make a difference. “I can buy a book here once in a while but the occasional book that I buy here isn’t going to keep them afloat.” With the various COVID-19 restrictions, in-store shopping was down, but those individual purchases added up. It's too early to tell what the final figures will be but online sales and several best sellers have been a boon. Please continue to support independent book stores so we can shop them in the future-

House for Sale

 

"The Lord of the Rings" actors are joining forces again. This time it's to raise money to buy JRR Tolkien's former home in Oxford, England. "The Hobbit" and much of the "LotR" trilogy was written here. The Project Northmoor hopes to raise $5+ million to turn the house into a literary center honoring the author as none exists. Sir Ian McKellen is featured in a video which gives the history of the house and Tolkien's contribution to literature.
