Road trip this summer?  We are in the process of reviewing and refreshing our books for sale.  This is a great opportunity for a little paying it forward!  Drop by and pick up a stack to take along. As you finish each book, leave it on a coffee table, in a hotel room, on a bench, with a little note inside for the next lucky person!
