The Holidays at Anthology

The staff decorated the store this past Saturday; I came in to find golden snowflakes, red and green bulbs, and ornaments adding a festive touch to the displays. We celebrate Thanksgiving this Thursday, and my mind holds still to the harvest colors, pumpkins, colored corn and gourds. But in our society, Thanksgiving marks the start of a mad-dash of holiday shopping, Black Friday deals and the ever-increasing need to find the perfect gift for those on your list.

Anthology Book Company is offering a wonderful collection of regional books from the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association Winter Catalog. We have been excited to bring these excellent titles to you since we first previewed the collection in late September. Our shelves are stocked with copies of new books ranging from history, fiction, cooking, children's titles and memoirs, to books that speak especially well to the issues and people of the West. As our gift to you, we are able to extend a 20% discount off any title in the Winter Catalog and will order titles in for you, should our supply run low. And of course, our stacks hold many used, rare and collectible books sure to please, as well. What could be better than combing the shelves of an independent bookstore?

My mantra is take things slowly, live in the present, be mindful. So I will slowly take down my fall decorations in my home and then bring in holiday items acquired over the years. And I too will think of loved ones and review the catalog as I move into holiday shopping mode. There couldn't be a better place to shop, than here at Anthology. Peace.
