Happy Easter!

Howdy, folks, and a Happy Easter for all who observe!

EasterBunny

As many of our returning customers know, like the Easter Bunny,we work out little cottontails off, bringing books to you.  Each year, we close on the holidays to recharge our batteries.  

We'll be closed, administratively, from 5:00 p.m, the night of April 19th through the morning of April 22nd.  Production will be full-tilt boogie while the office is closed, but in Admin, phones will not be answered and emails will only receive auto-replies until we're back on our regular schedule. Books that are in production will be shipped, fear not.  

Thanks, and Happy Easter!
