they sponsored, and helped her shop!

*Special opportunity at Gottwals Used Books:
This used book store, with locations in Macon and Warner Robins, stays stocked with books from the Books for Keeps wish list. The books cost a bit more; usually $2-$4 each, but they are books we rarely see in thrift stores - graphic novels, Wimpy Kids, and other hard to find books. We are hoping for a special sponsor or group of sponsors to cover Gottwals.
