Video Logs (Vlogs) are Coming to ABB

Due to the pandemic, it has been hard to schedule Book Signings in our store. So… we have a great idea to bring local authors to you in the comfort of your own home!

We are inviting local authors (published, and maybe even some unpublished) to come by the store and record a 3 to 5 minute video discussing their book. We will post the video on our social media for all to enjoy!

Give us a call to schedule a time for you to make your video log!

The Recount Is Complete!

Congratulations (again) to the Employee of the Year…. Bob!

After the recount, Bob won by a larger margin than ever before. Always Buying Books has great employees, but for the 20th straight year, ONE has stood out more than all the others.

(Bob is thinking about getting 20 little books tattooed on his arm)
