The return of SAB's Not-on-the-Sidewalk Sale!

With the Armada Fair taking place August 15th thru 21st, the squirrels have taken a moment to ponder the 150th edition of this Armada festival.
While it is true some people like the Armada Fair for the carnival rides, others prefer the 4H animals, while many more enjoy the food and the music.  
But, the SAB squirrels get excited for the return of our annual
Not-on-the-Sidewalk Sale! 
All week we're going to have all the tents and tables out in the front parking lot, filled to brim with books of every variety.  
All for 25 cents!

Summer Reading - My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse

Summer Reading - My Man Jeeves by P. G. Wodehouse

When the world is getting to be too much, I like to go visit my man, P. G. Wodehouse.  I enjoy the super silly superciliousness.  There is no trouble that goodhearted nincompoop Wooster can get into that his stalwart man Jeeves can't get him out of.  It might take Jeeves a while to get over a new mustache or garish socks, but when he finally puts his mind to the problem, he gets it done.

Summer Reading - Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong

Summer Reading - Zoey Punches the Future in the Dick by David Wong

The second book in the Zoey Ashe series by David Wong, or rather, Jason Pargin.  The first book, Futuristic Violence and Fancy Suits, drops an unsuspecting barista in the world of organized crime, unfathomable wealth, and just about limitless personal power.  It's like Willy Wonka met Cyberpunk 2077, got married by an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas while drunk on too many kamikazes, and then gave birth to The Boys.  Man, it was fun.  

Book 2 has Zoey fully entrenched in her late dad's empire, trying to make sense of the media, the changing technological landscape, and how she can say true to herself.  Feh.  I make it sound...

Working on our Makeover

In our downtime while we're closed to browsing, we've been doing some much needed sprucing up.  Admittedly, we should be doing more, but there just aren't enough hours in the day. 
The Bearded Spouse has updated our database, so doing searches are much faster than before.  I've been making all new signage for the shelves, as our paper signs were looking pretty shabby.  
I reupholstered a stool in garish colors, and I've been threatening to paint the walls to match.  Am I brave enough to make the store look like a gallon of Superman ice cream exploded?  
The basement storage is also getting an overhaul.  We've had books...
