    [June 29, 2010] > As soon as the new list was up, I sent a request to all our local used book shops. Kestrel Books and Characters Books both responded with immediate and generous offers – about 20+ books between them. I hope this hints at a successful search! I also hope friends and family will support Kestrel and Characters who’ve demonstrated a real interest in supporting their communities. Thanks guys!
