The Bookmark, Prince Edward Island’s bookstore, remains at our service, despite capitalism seemingly otherwise being on hiatus:
If you need books or a puzzle to get you through this unprecedented time, you can order online here, or call us at 902-566-4888 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will deliver your order to you the same day for FREE in the Charlottetown area. If you live outside Charlottetown, give us a call and we will let you know how we can deliver to you.
Robin Sloan recommended a couple of books in his newsletter a few weeks ago, The Westing Game and Sea of Poppies; I had The Bookmark order them both. They arrived in my vestibule today. As if by magic.
The great thing is that, as a special bonus, I get to help ensure that I still have a local independent bookstore at the end of all this.
Please join me if you can; and remember that The Bookmark can also delivery you fountain pens, notebooks, pencils, erasers, and socks featuring Justin Trudeau’s face.
