We received a fantastic collection of exquisite Franklin Press titles last month, and we have finally gotten them out onto the shelves for purchase!  Each one is leather-bound, and feature gorgeous illustrations within.  You will find the majority of these fine books in our classic section, with Ulysses by James Joyce, a collection of Greek Tragedies, and The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, just to name a few of the wonders we now have.  We also acquired some of Franklin’s Pulitzer Prize collection, including Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man in the Sea, Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton, and The Keepers of the House by Shirley Ann Grau.  Most are at the quite affordable cost of $8.00, which is a steal!   A few were unfornuately water-damaged, but we’ve marked the price down to $4.00 on those particular books to compensate for it.  Come by and see the selections!
