|Me posing outside the Alexander Book Company!|
My husband & I initially meant to ride BART into San Francisco on May 2nd and visit the Alexander Book Company for California Independent Bookstore Day, but I was sick with a cold. So, we had to postpone our visit until Saturday, May 16th... It most definitely was worth the short delay in our visit to the Alexander Book Company!!
The Alexander Book Company is an awesome bookstore that we plan to visit again soon. I love the layout of the Alexander Book Company, how the books are shelved and arranged, the entire decor of this bookstore and its uniqueness... There's an assortment of books for every interest and comfy places to sit and peruse books to your heart's content. There are also a large number of remaindered books and publisher returns for sale at good discounts too. The staff member we encountered during our visit was friendly and helpful, which is always a perk... I love good customer service no matter where I shop!
The Alexander Book Company also offers a Frequent Buyer Program, which is an awesome way to save money on one's book buying addiction. According to the Alexander's Book Company website, the Frequent Buyer Program "works for every ten non-discounted books you purchase, you'll receive an award for 10% back of those last ten books you purchased." Pretty cool program, right?
The Alexander Book Company is a darn near perfect bookstore to visit. I only wish that the Alexander Book Company offered author events/book signings. Wouldn't that be awesome if they did??
Until my next post, happy reading!!
