    Harry Potter Yule Ball

    We had a great time at the Ball! Loved the wandering dementor, sorting hat, fun games, and Lucius Malfoy look-a-like. Professor Lupin was fantastic and knowledgeable - I'd never met a real werewolf and I wasn't scared at all! He was actually really friendly and didn't smell like a dog.

    Please, please, please do it again! We learned things about Harry Potter and really enjoyed the evening. For instance, we weren't aware that Luna Lovegood is really a man. Go figure...

    Thanks again!

    JARED DIAMOND

    I ORDERED A JARED DIAMOND BOOK AND PLANNED TO ATTEND HIS SEMINAR ON MONDAY NIGHT AT ALBUQUERQUE ACADEMY. I HAVE A CONFLICT AND WILL BE UNABLE TO ATTEND THE EVENT. I WOULD LIKE TO CANCEL MY BOOK ORDER PLEASE. I WILL TRY TO REACH YOU BY PHONE TOMORROW OCT. 31.

    Have tried calling the phone number you have on your site and a message said to leave a message...but get "that mailbox does not exist".

    THANK YOU,

    A store close to my heart.

    Dear Alamosa:
    I must thank you for opening your book shop, it is quite possibly my favorite place to go. Your wide selections of books never cease to pique my interest and I will admit: I am always compelled to buy at least one, and once I finish it: I come back for another! Your store has restored my love of reading since I've moved to Albuquerque, thank you so much.

    Alamosa is the Best

    Dear Alamosa Books,

    Thanks so much for hosting Nick Bruel of "Bad Kitty" fame and Travelin' Jack. We were delighted to hear Travelin' Jack's story. Many thanks to Mr. Bruel for reading a chapter from his next Bad Kitty book.

    I also want to thank you for wonderful story times. We come to your store to listen to new favorite books. In the past month, I've especially enjoyed hearing "Monster's Monster" from two different readers. It's given me a new perspective on the importance of kindness and the power of voice.

    You are the best!
