“No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books.”
-Elizabeth Barrett Browning-
April is a time of new growth and new beginnings and is the perfect time to try something new and different that will hopefully help make your life better-or at least more interesting! Check out our new arrivals and try an author that you have never read before or one of our “self-help” books. Or check out one of our DVDs that will help you to have a more beautiful yard, build something fun or help you better store all the extra stuff around the house that you really should finally have that big garage sale for (yes, we even have books to help you have that sale successfully). Come by the Friend’s Book Store and enjoy the new spring decorations as you try out their bargain coffee and chocolates and books, It will be a welcome break from working on income tax returns and upcoming “finals.”
