Summer Super Sale This Weekend!!

We're so excited about the upcoming NE Broadway Summer Super Sale! At Broadway Books it starts this Friday at 10 am, when we open, and continues on Saturday and Sunday. This is the only time of the year when we sell special readers' editions of titles, and we donate the proceeds to Literary Arts for their Writers in the Schools program.The books are available at an astounding price: $4 each or 3 for $10. In most cases we only have one copy of each of these titles, so come early and often for the best selection, as we replenish the tables.

Just to make it even more exciting, we're also offering hardcover fiction at 25% off!!  That makes a hardcover book almost the same price as a paperback, without the wait! And, if you spend $100 or more at one time, we'll give you a Broadway Book's 20th Anniversary canvas book bag!!! Believe me, they are styling -- and practical. We will have a variety of other miscellaneous items on our sale tables, to make room for all of the new fun items we'll be getting in this Fall.

A new twist this year is that many merchants (including us) will be participating in the Backstage Pass program, in which you earn Backstage Passes by making purchases from participating merchants which can then be redeemed at other participating merchants. Coupons redeemed at our store will entitle the bearer to choose a free greeting card with the purchase of a book. Passes can be redeemed at participating merchants through August 31.

In addition to great bargains, the weekend includes music and dancing, food and drink, and fun activities for kids and adults. You can read details about the weekend below, and check out the NE Broadway Business Association's website to learn about specific participating businesses. We look forward to seeing you!
