World Book Night

Tuesday is World Book Night, when you can visit participating stores and pick up a free book. The goal is to put books in the hands of people who don’t or rarely read books.

At Rhino Records in Claremont, the only Inland Valley store that I know is taking part (there doesn’t seem to be a list), you can get Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451.” The store will have 20 copies, available for the asking from 4 p.m. until closing time at 9 p.m. If they’re out, a few single copies of other books will be available.

Also, all books at Rhino will be 10 percent off during those same hours. Trying to make up for a dearth of bookstores in Claremont, Rhino has 1,200 books in stock, new and used, from literary fiction and graphic novels to novelty books and music bios.

    Too bad Book Exchange cant find an affordable spot in Claremont, it might actually do good in our community. Claremont is an avid book reading community. Our library does pretty well during it’s booksales.

      Claremont has a lot of half bookstores: the Friends bookshop at the library, the Thoreau donated-books store in the Packing House, Huntley Bookstore at the colleges, but not a real full-fledged bookstore. Too bad.
