jameswhitcombriley_bookI remember thinking I wanted to die rather than live through another February day of grayness; I didn’t tell anyone because I knew it wasn’t normal. And normal was all I ever wanted to be. – Sharon E Rainey, Making a Pearl from the Grit of Life

February, month of despair,
with a skewered heart in the centre.― Margaret Atwood

Yes, here it is again. For some reason February keeps showing up. I have no idea why it even has to appear on a calendar. I could accept a longer January. Even a longer March. Just erase February from everything.

How do I get through? Chocolate. And a good fat used book to escape in. Until I can turn the page to the wonderful month of March.

So I offer up as I have for the past few years a 50% sale for the last half of the month. As Ben states, “Have fun with your sales!” That is Ben, of The County Bookshop, in Plainfield – so well worth the drive. And he is right. The sale helps me through and it is a lot of fun. Customers get great deals and inventory flies out the door. And the best thing is that everyone is in a great mood. It all makes the saddest month of the year almost bearable.

halfoff_signsYes, all books are half price. 50% off. Each and every book. February 15-28. Come by! And buy! 🙂

The most serious charge which can be brought against New England is not Puritanism but February. ― Joseph Wood Krutch
