It’s Crazy, But True

mockingbird.jpgWhat a run in downtown Northfield. Last week there was the Taste of Northfield. What a tasty event that was. I’m still impressed, days later, by the turnout and enthusiasm for Harry Potter: Release 7.0. And now, when you think maybe it’s time to go on vacation, or plop on the couch and not get up, there’s soon another compelling reason to venture downtown: Crazy Daze 2007 is just three days away.

I mean, seriously, if it was like this every week we would have to beat people off with heavy sticks. Everyone would want to live here. And think of the parking problem then!

Anyway, I need to tell you about River City Books’ involvement in this annual festival of downtown retail because it’s pretty insane.

I’m tickled to report that Loretta Ellsworth, author of In Search of Mockingbird, will read from and discuss her book at 1 p.m., Thursday, July 26, at River City Books. 

Weather permitting, she will appear outside the store, where RCB will have a tent full of bargain books on sale.

There will also be plenty of reason to shop indoors — and not just because of the air conditioning. Every trade book, DVD and CD in the store will be on sale for 10 percent off! School clothing will also be marked at low prices. Sounds crazy, but it’s true.

Go downtown on Thursday. Eat up. Shop till the pockets are empty. And make sure you save room for a bargain book or three — and maybe a new DVD. Hey, that rhymed.
