Park Road Books | Charlotte, NC (Bookstore)

Apparently, @dsfisher and I have decided to make #booksinabox a #smallbusinesssaturday at #Parkroadbooks a tradition. Last year was the first time I‘d ever bought so many books at one time that I needed a box to carry the purchases home. We may have exceeded last year‘s stack. 😆😆 (actual haul in next post)

I decided I needed to own a copy of the tagged book, so I made a quick run to #ParkRoadBooks to grab one, and *might* have picked up a fun read to balance out the serious essays. 😆

This is a #blameitonlitsy purchase and the books referenced in Saturday‘s email from my local #indie #parkroadbooks. They‘re even more beautiful in person. 😍

I love my #indiebookstore #parkroadbooks. Sherri ordered all of the Ben Clanton books for me and found this accessible book on Emmett Till. Best of all, everyone shared my enthusiasm for Narwhal and Jelly and #nojudgement for the fact I bought them for myself. I don‘t have kids or even have nearby friends with kids. These puppets and books are all mine! 🤣🤣

cobwebmoth I love Narwhal and Jelly!😊 7mo
mrp27 I love these books too! 7mo
tournevis My son loves the books and owns the stuffies too! 7mo

I came back from vacation today to this lovely piece of #bookmail sitting on my porch, because I‘m a dumba$$ who thought I preordered the Kindle version from Amazon and a hard copy from my local #indie #ParkRoadBooks. No. I will have two copies once I picked up the other from #PRB. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Giveaway time, methinks.

Happy Independent Bookstore Day! I celebrated by going to my local #indie #ParkRoadBooks where if you spent more than $100, you got a tote bag and a $5 credit for a future purchase! Woohoo!

Graciouswarriorprincess Wow! I just got the tote and the freebies along with some pins. 8mo
DGRachel @Graciouswarriorprincess I think I am physically incapable of spending less than $50 every time I walk in that store! I didn‘t even realize they were giving away the totes until I was checking out and Nikki said “because you spent more than $100...”😂😂 8mo
Graciouswarriorprincess Cool! I bought my tote several weeks ago because I was afraid they would sell out and they didn‘t have any today. I only got one book because next week is the library used book sale at the fairgrounds. I volunteer there and get free books. 8mo
DGRachel @Graciouswarriorprincess Now you‘re really making me miss living in Raleigh/Cary. I didn‘t know they did a library used book sale at the Fairgrounds! 😭😭 8mo
Graciouswarriorprincess @DGRachel Every year. Last year I got two boxes of books(about 60 books) free from volunteering at the sale. I can‘t wait til Thursday when it starts. 👍🏻😉 8mo

Today, I followed my bliss to my favorite place to spend my lunch hour, #parkroadbooks. Picked up my preorder (The Five - hooray for finally giving the victims a voice!!), a #blamebookriot book (If I Loved You Less), a book that‘s been on my radar since last year (Washington Black), and a couple of bookseller recommendations. Oh, and a cute tote bag and cards for #litsylove. I love #PRB and the staff there. ❤️#bookhaul #nofoodlunchhour

TheEllieMo The Five is definitely on my To Read list, the reviews I‘ve read have piqued my interest 8mo
Emilymdxn I really enjoyed Washington black! 8mo
ShyBookOwl I've had Wasington Black on audio for way too long. Need to read it soon! 8mo

I‘m going to meet the author at #ParkRoadBooks on Thursday, so I wanted to read this account of the refugees she met and taught in Berlin. She gives a little history lesson, as well, of Jewish refugees fleeing Russian pogroms and it suddenly made me wonder...with the rise (again) of nationalism globally, could we see a repeat of the Holocaust?

CoverToCoverGirl Very scary question indeed! 9mo
jpmcwisemorgan I‘m not sure we‘ll see camps of that size, although what is happening to children at the border is not a good sign. I think we‘ll see things like a repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which will result to death. We already have people crowdfunding for medical care (some one died somewhat recently because they couldn‘t pay for their insulin or raise the money fast enough). I think it‘s already happening but not enough people want to see it. 9mo
DGRachel @jpmcwisemorgan Ugh. It makes me sad, scared, and so nauseated to think that the US could be ground zero for such an atrocity. And the separation of children at the border is just mind-boggling. I don‘t understand how anyone can support that. 9mo

Work book club was yesterday and I discovered one of my co-workers is like my reading soul sister, so we spent a lot of time today talking books. That, of course, gave me an overwhelming desire to go to my local #indie #parkroadbooks at lunch, and well...you see the results. Plus, they ordered three other books for me. 🤦🏻‍♀️ #bookhaul

thegirlwiththelibrarybag Love finding a reading soul mate! I‘ve read and enjoyed 99% mine (the trick is not compare it to her first book) it‘s a pretty fun read ☺️ 9mo

Well, I WAS going to start HP2 this afternoon, but my order arrived at #ParkRoadBooks and now I have the next Orphan X novel in my hands. I am faced with a terrible dilemma! Which do I read first? #firstworldproblems #readerdilemma #iheartevan #butiheartdobbytoo

TrishB Definitely not the HP this time!! 10mo
DGRachel @TrishB Prepare to be disappointed in my life choices. 😂 I figured I should read HP over the weekend because it‘s easier to haul Evan to work than the illustrated edition of HP. 10mo
TrishB But logical reasoning for the choice 👍🏻 10mo
