Oh, No! No Inventory Update


UPDATE on updating our in-store inventory, so that you can see online just what we have or can get for you: 
Our work-around is sporadic at best and what you see as "in stock" may not be and vice versa.
The only reliable information is that if the status is: "hard to find," that book really is really hard to get (at a reasonable price)!

Please give us a call 815-285-2665 or write us chin@booksonfirst.com if you need additional help.
We thank you for your patience.

As of now, Eleanor and Park is my second favorite book. Although I read it more than two years ago, it forever has a special place in my heart. This book is perfect for you if you're a sucker for semi-cheesy, teen novels like I am. It depicts two polar opposite teens who find love for one another in their heart. It contains the hardships of a bad family life and the hardships of a seemingly "perfect" family. If you're ever looking for a heart-warming book, take the time to read Eleanor and Park.
