Bag a bargain at bookstore's big blowout


Visitors to Just Right Books are bound to find something for everyone at a mega sale going on.

For one more week, guests at the store can sift through the store's extensive selection of gently used paperbacks, hardbound and rare books and fill a bag for $2.50.

The sale has been a month-long event. Return customers may remember the annual sale taking place in the past in the parking lot of the store, 1905 E. Isaacs Ave. With former neighbor Wags to Whiskers recently relocating downtown, owner Donna Wright has been able to use the space next door to spread out the inventory.

Just Right Books is known for its voluminous selection of used books. Most are priced at half the original cover price, with the exception of first editions and rare books. The store also takes books on trade. For more information, call 526-7662.

The building houses Darrah's Framing & Decorator, Chateau Rollat and Eagle Home Mortgage.
