Bear warning

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Unlike our western neighbours we don’t have grizzlies in Saskatchewan, only black bears, so we don’t need to worry about identifying the species from its poop.

Venture in to Venturoso while you still can

Friday, December 5th, 2008

Just in case any book lovers in the Prince Albert area still aren’t aware or have forgotten, this is a reminder that Venturoso Books will close its doors for good on December 24. The P.A. Daily Herald story can be found by clicking here.

I popped in yesterday and picked up a couple of books at 40% off.  The sale prices will get progressively better as the closing date approaches.  They still have lots of used books, and quite a few new books (predominantly Canadian/Saskatchewan/local interest stuff, which they seem to specialize in).

Venturoso is a nice change from the used book stores that specialize in trashy novels, comics and garish posters.  They will be missed.
