Independent Booksellers of New York City
A group representing more than 20 independent bookstores in New York City held their second meeting on June 26. The booksellers have decided officially to call themselves the Independent Booksellers of New York City and have formed committees to work on a website, create a logo and develop a map that includes all independent bookstores in the city. Stores have agreed to make founding contributions to the association, which will provide seed money for those projects. Bookstores interested in more information and participating should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the Teaser Poster for Tyler Perry's next movie, The Family that Preys Together.
Tyler Perry wrote a song that I loved for Madea's Family Reunion titled, "The Family that Prays Together." I hope that song is the theme song for the soundtrack. This story will star Academy award winning Cathy Bates and Emmy Award winning actress, Alfre Woodard. The story is about two families that are woven together thru scandal. Cast: Sanaa Lathan, Rockmond Dunbar, Cole Hauser, Tarji Henson. Release date September 17, 2008.
Yeah!! Usually every summer I visit my kin in Kissimmee and take Selah to Disney World. My cousin is a school teacher and receives tons of free tickets to DW, so Selah has a blast . But this year we're not going. I have a conference to attend in Destin in August, and Selah's new school begins school at the end of this month. Yikes. So we may go for Thanksgiving. Anyway...digress...sorry. Kissimme, FLO hasa opened a ginormous Books a Million at West Osceola Parkway this past Friday. I am a huge fan of Faithpoint. If you check the sidebar I have a coupon banner that will give you instant savings if you shop books via Faithpoint.
"Independently run religious stores are financially hurting. (Family Christian) will pull a bit of sales away from other stores," said Savage, owner of Jack's Religious Gift Shop on Snow Hill Road in Salisbury. "Any time somebody is doing the same thing, you're concerned. Many stores -- hundreds -- closed last year, and about the same number are closing this year. The just can't make it. The Christian chain is a trend."Source- The Daily Times Savage's response to receiving fewer titles from his long time distributor, Thomas Nelson Publishing Co.
Do you agree? Is Christian Bookstores a chain or hear to stay.
