Wine Mondays (The Reading Tree)

Everybody needs a good whine on Monday and so The Reading Tree invited our friends to join with us at Books, Inc. on Monday, December 8th to celebrate the publication of our Board Member Christie Matheson's Wine Mondays.

We had a very successful event, sold over $300 worth of raffle tickets and $7,000 worth of books! Christie sold out of her book. Lots of friends did all their holiday shopping and requested that we make it an annual event so stay tuned for details.
