CoolHunter does all the traipsing about so you don’t have to, because we all know that it can be hard work to stay cool. Get cool here.

Happy Indie Holiday December 19, 2008

typewriter1Finally, a cause you can get behind. I am in this group on FB and want to share beyond Facebook borders. This letter came from Rob, from the FB Independent Booksellers Group.

Dear Member:

This holiday, I am asking that you help Indies across the country by contributing just $10.00 to our cause benefactor, The American Booksellers Association (ABA). ABA provides educational resources to Indies that allow us the opportunity to serve you better. ABA is the founder of Indiebound, the movement that is making waves across across the nation and beyond by uniting and igniting the passion for buying local. If each of us would give just $10.00, imagine what could be done.

Your $10.00 could make a huge difference to so many indie shops. Please make your tax-deductable donation today.

I hope that eaach of you have a Happy, Peaceful and Indie Holiday.

Peace

Rob
