We just got back from CIROBE, the Chicago International Remainder & Overstock Book Expo.  Tons of books!!  You bet we bought some-- some real beauties, kitsch gifties, serious nonfiction and always art and architecture.  They'll be arriving in the next few weeks, so feel free to stop by and check out the new wonders.  While they last that is, since they're all marked well below retail.

The N.O.B.S. Forums Conversations Throughout the Book World features a print maker this month, alongside her Annex Gallery exhibition of scratchboard prints.  Cathie Bleck studied design and painting at the University of Illinois.  Her delicate yet powerful scratchboard carvings appear to dance into spirals which she describes as “the unseen swirl and flow of internal and external spirits that entwine us.”  Cathie Bleck has lectured, conducted workshops and exhibited throughout North and South America and Europe.  Sponsored by the Northern Ohio Bibliophilic Society, $3 suggested donation.

Stump the BooksellerD275: Dollar bill used for time-travel
This was a chapter book that I read in the early 80's about two children (maybe a brother and a sister?) who somehow traveled to the future. In the future, everyone was bald and wore shiny suits. I think there was a picture of the bald future people on the cover. To get back to their time, I think the children had to use a dollar bill to activate a time machine in a pyramid- I know that the symbology of the dollar bill was involved somehow.
