The Five More Books Pledge

Our mission to find 365+ people willing to pledge to buy as few as five MORE books from us this year has been going great. We suspected our customers value Room and want to keep their downtown independent bookstore strong and we were right! Please come in and see the pledges on our wall.

If you are willing to show your support, you can still request your name be added to our pledge board!

And please encourage your friends too!

Dear friends and booklovers, thank you for all the wonderful birthday wishes and for pledging! We feel truly grateful to have such great customers for the past 36 years in business.

About this event:
In this challenging and ever-changing bookselling climate, we have been facing some difficult choices. Decreasing sales in 2010 were particularly tough for our store. The 5 More Books Pledge was created so we can feel confident renewing our lease at the end of 2011. After some calculating, we realized we need to sell a minimum of five more books per day to stay strong and vital in this marketplace.

Our optimism was well founded! Spread the word to keep it going, share on your Facebook or Twitter accounts. If you already buy more books than you can read in a year, consider buying books as gifts, or purchase a gift certificate for your local public or school library.

We have the best customers anywhere and with your help Room will be around for a long time!

Sandi, Nancy and all the staff at Room
