Books & Boos Needs Your Help!

Our Indiegogo campaign is winding down, and we desperately need your help. September sales were quite low and we had to visit a pawn shop to meet the rent. At this point, we’re hoping to raise $6,000 to carry us through the winter and still be around this Spring. We’d appreciate ANY amount you can donate–every dollar helps! Visit our campaign at http://igg.me/at/booksandboos. Thank you for your support!
