Book Coupon Page OneAs a writer and avid reader I’m always keen to support Albuquerque’s locally-owned independent bookstores and their initiatives to encourage people to read more. Especially when we save money too!

Print out this Page One coupon to save $5 on any $30 purchase until November 30, 2012, whether it’s a new or used item.  It could come in handy if you’re shopping for yourself, or if you’re starting your holiday gift shopping.

For ABQ on the Cheap readers with a smart phone, iPad, or other internet enabled doohickey, you don’t even have to use the Page One printable coupon. Just show it on your “web capable mobile device” to the cashier to get the $5 discount.

Page One runs a Self-Published and Local Albuquerque Author Fair on the first Saturday of each month from 3 pm to 5 pm, with local authors selling their books, so that’s a good opportunity to turn up and learn more about some Albuquerque writers.

This Saturday November 10 at 3pm, local author Paul Christman discusses his novel The Purple Runner, originally published in 1983 and now in its second edition printing. Apparently it’s reputed to be one of the top 10 novels about running, but what would I know? The only thing I run for is the phone. Christman was the editor of Running Stats, and has written for Running Times, Marathon & Beyond, Athletics Weekly, and the Santa Fe Reporter. So if you’re into running and reading (not necessarily at the same time) it sounds like he’s your man.

Page One also holds the Adobe Walls Open Mic Night & Poetry Reading on the second Tuesday evening of each month, starting at 7 pm (sign up for the open mic from 6:45 pm). The event is (of course) free, and on Tuesday November 13, the 30-minute open mic hosted by Kenneth P. Gurney is followed by a reading by Jim Nye, a military man and the author of After Shock: Poems and Prose from the Vietnam War,  so it’s apt timing following Veterans Day.
