SOLSC Day 19
On Sunday we met with the treasurer of our organization. He wanted to go over some things with us before presenting the budget at Wednesday’s meeting. We needed to decide on a place to meet. I chose BAM because they have a cafe. Coffee and discussion sounded good to me.
Oh wait. What is BAM you might ask? Well, years ago we lost out Boarders bookstore when the chain closed. I was devastated because we have no bookstores in our area. What was going to happen to that building now that Borders was leaving?
Luckily Books-A-Million (B-A-M) took over; it is now out go to book store.
W got there a little before our meeting so naturally we had to look around.
New releases. Bargain books. YA books. Magazines. Music. Where to start.
I always start with the new releases especially since there was one I was interested in…Cemetery Road by Greg Iles.
Of course they had it. Did I buy it? What do you think?
We have been going to BAM for years. I know I spend a lot of time there because the manager knows me, not by name but as a frequent customer. We always have a little conversation. He knows the type of books I like. He recommends titles to me. He gets advanced reading copies so he is familiar with the books before the store gets them. He hasn’t steered me wrong yet.
No trip to Harrisburg would be complete without a stop at BAM.
