Reading Used To Be the Great American Pastime.
As the ark, the horns and the shout of the soldiers brought down the walls of Jericho, so the Internet has brought down the walls of brick and mortar stores worldwide. My favorite job in the world was working at Borders Books & Music. Couldn't make a living there, but that didn't matter for a while. Being surrounded by books, helping customers, introducing Friday night music, arranging and promoting book signings -- I was in my element. And now that corporation is gone, as are so many other bookstores.
What I have here in the this website is pale imitation. But I still love to guide people to good reading matieral and good music, and that's what I'm doing here. Let me know what kind of book you're looking for and I'll find it for you. Want a tough-fisted, hard-edged agent of the President taking down Mexican drug cartels and Somali pirates? Try Hazardous Duty, by W.E.B. Griffin and Wm. E Butterworth IV -- only $5.50 hardback. Then there's the tale of the widowed florist who loses a son and finds comfort in the arms of a police officer, in Family Blessings, by LaVyrle Spencer -- $3.50 for a mass market paperback. Want ten steps to a better body? There's Make the Connection, by Bob Greene and Oprah Winfrey --only $3.49 for the hardcover. Comics based on the Batman cartoon? We've got several issues of Batman Adventures for sale. Anything you're looking for, whether specific or in general, just write me at IncredibleHulk55@gmail.com (please put "JERICHO" somewhere in the subject line for faster service). And just because you don't see it on the site, it doesn't mean we don't have it -- just ask.
Also, please feel free to share your ideas on books, music, comics, and if you want it published, please give express permission. Thanks! And keep on reading! There's a lot of books in the world!
