The following message was sent to me by a reader and since I’m all about promoting LDS books, I decided I would post it here. I may regret this if I get bombarded with everyone who wants to promote their business, but I’m taking a chance and hoping it won’t get out of hand.
Dear LDS Publisher,
I know you don’t usually do advertisements like this, but I thought perhaps you would make an exception in this case.
There is a new independent LDS bookstore opening this weekend, November 8th, in Pleasant Grove, Utah. It’s called Provident Book, and it’s located at 661 W State, Pleasant Grove. It’s just north of the PG Rodeo Grounds and in the same strip of shops as Timpanogos Cyclery.
As I’m sure you’re aware, it’s been a long time since there was an independent bookstore in this area and we’re excited to be opening it. We hope your readers that are local to us will come by for a visit and will support us in our efforts to make books by smaller presses readily available to the public. Of course, we’ll carry books from the “big guys” as well.
To celebrate our Grand Opening, we will have over 30 authors there signing books throughout the day. They will include David G. Woolley, H.B. Moore, Rachel Ann Nunes, Jennie Hansen, Michelle Ashman Bell, N.C. Allen, Julie Coulter Bellon, Tristi Pinkston, and Angela Hallstrom—just to mention a few. You can find a full list and the schedule here.
Our store will also carry a fabulous line of toys and games for all ages, LDS CDs and DVDs, and lots more. For a sneak peek, you can visit my personal blog. You’ll also find a printable coupon for 25% off any one item there.
I hope all your readers in the Utah County area will come by and visit—and bring their Christmas shopping list. You will be amazed by what we have!
Thanks (in advance) for helping us spread the word.
Karlene Browning, Asst. Manager
Provident Book/Humdinger Toys
P.S. LDSP—if you come to the store and reveal your true identity, I’ll give you an extra discount. 🙂
