BOOK ‘Em Closing

Apr 7, 2014

bookemAfter 24 years, Mary and Barry are closing their doors.

After Wednesday, April 30th, BOOK ‘Em Mysteries bookstore in South Pasadena shall be no more.

Over the years, author events have included the likes of Michael Connelly and Robert Crais to local mystery authors Denise Hamilton, Naomi Hirahara, and Kwei Quartey. Mary and Barry’s shop, nestled on Mission Street in South Pasadena has been a cozy comfort for mystery, thriller, and crime lovers.

All books are 35% off, but already the shelves are looking bare, so don’t wait!

Just make sure, this one last visit, to give yourself some extra time to meander and browse, pick up a book and crack it open to read the book jacket. Allow yourself to be lured by a new author, a new mystery series, and then stock up!

It’s time to offer a fond farewell to those who created this independent specialized bookstore—this marvelous haven—employees Jean and Amanda, and owners Mary Riley and Barry Martin.

Thank you. You shall be missed, but well remembered.
