LORETO - El Caballo Bookstore Openhouse & Book Sale


May 22nd & 23rd is El Caballo Bookstore Openhouse & Book Sale! One of the things we most love about Mexico is that everything happening here is cause for celebration! So...in that spirit, let's celebrate summer!

Summer, here in the Baja is a wonderful blend of laid back days...sun, water, and cerveza, iced tea (or a margarita) plus a good book (or two or three)! In Loreto, we have planned an "OverStock Book Sale". This sale helps us at El Caballo Blanco get our inventory down to a manageable level, and is also our own small reward for all of the hardy souls who thrive in hot weather and stay here in the Baja all summer!!!!

Readers, (tourists and locals) have brought us boxes and boxes of new and used books so that we are now bursting at the seams! It's a great feeling for booklovers, but without enough shelves to organize them, and with precarious stacks leaning and tumbling everywhere, we barely have room to live (plus daily dusting is a major pain).

So...we are creating our own summer celebration with a book sale, Friday, May 21st, and Saturday, May 22nd,(9 am to 7pm each day), 2 rooms of books waiting and ready for your own lazy summertime reading.

All books in our first room will be 1/4 the retail price, and we have a new stock of cloth "Ugly Bags" that are free with large purchases. Readers and collectors may also be interested in helping us delete stacks of books (popular authors that are now taking up much too much space...Steel, Grisham, Cornwell, Bradford and Mary Higgins Clark). These will be sold....$2 each or 6 for $10.

Stop in for coffee or iced tea, conversation, and cookies, and stay long enough to browse, sit, and visit. Happy summer reading!!! More information you may email jeannine1220@yahoo.com or call 613-116-5374.
