SALE THIS WEEK WEDNESDAY-SUNDAY
Internationalist Books will be having a sale this week! From tomorrow,
Wednesday September 15 through Sunday the 19th, you can take advantage
our squirrel-like tendencies to keep books and magazines stashed away
on the darkest storage shelves as we pull it all out and pile it all up
for you to buy cheap. Donations are always welcome, but please
consider the quality and saleability of books before you start pulling
the moldy horror novels out of the back of the garage!
