Knowing my love for anything books, my Super Blog Buddy Sarah mentioned an independent book store here in San Diego and suggested I check it out, I was not disappointed.
Readers Inc., a family owned book store located in La Mesa Village is small in size, but big on charm. Readers Inc. is a local authors dream, while looking around I noticed several of my fellow local San Diego SCBWI authors prominently displayed on the shelves.
Readers Inc. was also present at the book launch for “The Lunch Thief” last weekend helping Anne sell copies of the book. This is a great service they offer for local authors and their knowledge of the store inventory is un-matched for any other book store I have visited. During this tough economy it is important for us to support our local independent book stores, they are an important part of our community and a great resource.
This summer the La Mesa Village is sponsoring a car show on Thursday evenings that includes classic cars, bands and tasty food. The owners of Readers Inc. have scheduled book signings each Thursday to tie into the fun. Last week I had the opportunity to meet author Jennifer Cervantes, and have her autograph a copy of her book Tortilla Sun (I will be reviewing the book later this week). Check out the events calendar to see which authors will be signing*.
So if you are looking for a fun family evening of classic cars, bands, tasty food and a cool book store I would suggest you check out Readers Inc. in the La Mesa Village on Thursday nights.
* Authors note: I will be taking part in this event on August 19th from 6pm-8pm and signing copies of my book “Grandma’s Pear Tree”, hope to see you there.
