Difficult as it may be to believe, Red Oak House is holding a book sale on Saturday, June 2, starting at 9 a.m.
A couple of winters back, I cataloged our collection and culled about two hundred books, mostly duplicates as well as books we've read that don't fit in the scope of our permanent collection. For a while, I toyed with the idea of selling these online, but I don't want to have to deal with issues like sales tax and such, to not mention that I have much better things to do with my time, like writing the book we are working on! That, and hiking and birdwatching and fishing and gardening.
Our friends Ken Rogers and Kevin Carvell are going to add some of their books to the sale so there should be some real treasures (that is, if we don't buy all of these from each other before we open for business -- could happen!).
So please stop by, under the spreading branches of the champion Red Oak Tree in Bismarck at 920 Arthur Dr. next Saturday. Linger to admire the flower beds if you wish. Sip on a cup of cold lemonade.
Help your fellow bookworms make room on our shelves for new books. You'll be doing a good deed.
