Stay tuned for the next B&B benefit party in Jerry Ferraz's backyard! Here's some video of the last one!

This "Books" page is under construction.

We have in mind giving you a couple different things here:

  • Information on new titles added to the stock.
  • Information on specific used books that we've acquired that we think will have more than passing interest to different folks in our diverse customer base.

If you have opinions on how we should present that material, or what other information you'd like to see at this link, send us an email at [email protected].

Make the subject line "recommendations for the B&B "Books" page" -- or words to that effect -- so that we won't overlook it.

We'll send an acknowledgement at the very least, so if you don't hear back let us know.
