Phoenix Rising- The New England Mobile Bookfair back for more!

Back in March, I'd written about the trials of a long-time local bookstore that was an icon in the region, the New England Mobile Bookfair, or NEMBF for short. Owner Tom Lyons was faced with some tough decisions if he was to stay in business. Rent and expenses were so draining that a new home was needed.

Well, happy to say, he found a way to keep going. He managed to get a new place, just down the street, proving the "mobile" in the name. Their new digs are at 241 Needham Street, in Newton Upper Falls.

The new bookstore building is smaller than the huge hangar-like building we were so used to, but I like the scale of the new place. They still have many massive shelves of books, and a variety that staggers the imagination. It's roomy and well-lit, with plenty of placement for books from all over, and a great space for Local Authors.

There's a cozy corner of the children's section

And lots of great books to choose from

 So make a date to come on by and sample the wares, and welcome old friends in a new spot.
They're running some great specials from time to time.
They'll also be hosting more awesome book signings from big-name authors,
like the upcoming one with Tess Gerritsen at 7 PM on Friday, August 25th!
