When you are not outdoors, enjoying the wide variety of winter sports, available in Teton Valley,  a good book is the perfect way to spend a winter evening. Dark Horse Books has new mysteries and fantasy books in stock as well as literature and non-fiction.

 With the start of the new year, we have made some changes. Dark Horse Books now has used books for sale. Over the next few months, we hope to expand and widen our collection of used books. Also, we have over 800 used comic books for sale for the low, low price of $1.00. There is Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Star Wars, X-men and much, much more.

World Book Night is scheduled for April 23, 2012. To quote from its website:

“We need 50,000 book-loving volunteers to fan out across America on April 23, 2012! Just take 20 free copies of a book to a location in your community, and you just might change someone’s life.

The goal is to give books to new readers, to encourage reading, to share your passion for a great book. The entire publishing, bookstore, library, author, printing, and paper community is behind this effort with donated services and time. And with a million free World Book Night paperbacks!”

We need volunteers from Teton Valley to give free books out to people who don’t read books. Dark Horse Books has volunteer to be a distribution center where the book givers can pick up their copies of the free books. We will have a fun party that evening for all of the valley givers. The books selected for 2012 are fantastic. Check out the list of 30 titles being given way here. http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/wbn2012-the-books

If you are interested in sharing your love of reading and books, sign up here. The deadline for signing to be a book giver is February 1st.
