Happy New Year From All of Us @ PFB

Thanks to everyone who bought, sold, or traded books with us in 2009. A busy and successful year.

Coming soon to both stores: new shelves, way more new books, and tons of publisher's remainders (about 1500 pounds of them, scheduled to arrive some time in the first week or two of January).

We have also just received a massive shipment of protective plastic Brodart book jackets, and can now cover anything from tiny Science Fiction Book Club hardcovers to oversize art books. Never Brodarted your books before? Bring yours in to either shop; the jackets are really inexpensive, and we'll cover your books while you wait.

Kits will be CLOSED New Year's Day, but Main Street will be open from 12 noon to 6pm. See you next year!

* 1000 pounds of remainder books, including lots of art, poetry, Japanese woodblock prints, high-end gardening books, cookbooks & etc.

If you haven't visited in a while, now might be a good time to. We're busy!

We're also raising food for the Vancouver Food Bank. Any donation of food that's not instant noodles or K.D. will receive 10% off any used book in the shop now through Christmas Eve.
