Free Books!

Wanda Jewell faces a bit of a conundrum. As the longtime executive director of the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance -- a trade group of which Accent on Books is a member -- she has received a number of books from publishers over the years. Now they are beginning to accumulate in unmanageable numbers. So Wanda has come up with a clever solution that benefits her, benefits Accent on Books, and, most importantly, benefits our customers: she's giving her books away. For free! And you can be on the receiving end. Here's how:

Make a purchase from Accent on Books. Then go to Fill out the form you find there, print it out, mail it to Wanda with a copy of your Accent on Books receipt, and she will send you a free book. Furthermore, on the form you will have an opportunity to specify your favorite genres and favorite authors, which will help Wanda find an appropriate book for you from her extensive collection.

"Good while supplies last," as they say. But in this case there's quite a supply, so there's an excellent chance you can get in on this deal.

Thank you, Wanda, for this great idea. And thanks to all of you for supporting independent bookstores.
