2012 Was an "Event-Full" Year at Burry Bookstore!

Happy New Year! We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in 2013!

2012 was a year full of events, as you will see below, and we celebrated our 40th Anniversary at Burry Bookstore! If you haven't signed our guest book sharing your favorite memories of the last 40 years at Burry's, please do that the next time you are in. We have enjoyed reading the comments our customers have made as special memories have been recorded in our keepsake book.

Burry Bookstore launched into the e-book world in 2012 and it has been interesting to see the various responses we have received. Many customers are still not ready to venture that far, but are intrigued enough to try our demo models. Others of you have been reading e-books since they were first available and we are glad to now be able to offer you the option to do that while still supporting Burry Bookstore.

If you are interested in purchasing an e-reading device, come by and let us give you a demonstration. Already have a device on which you download books? Start buying them from Burry's and keep your dollars in downtown Hartsville! Prices are comparable to Amazon, there are free apps for your IPad, IPhone, Android, Nook, PC and Mac. Follow this link to register online and start buying your e-books from Burry's! Once you set up your account through this link all of your purchases will be associated with Burry Bookstore and you will be able to support your local independent bookstore no matter what reading format you choose!
