Happy Pride Month!

Throughout the month of June, Books Inc. will be celebrating Pride Month with displays (and events) in our stores featuring titles for all ages. Below are some of our stores current displays. Stop by your local Books Inc. and see what they have showcased because they're always changing and ask a bookseller about some of their favorites. We'll be updating this blog, and the post over on the kids blog, throughout the month wtih recommendations and reviews.  

**Most of these displays feature an array of age ranges, not all appropriate for young readers, so a list of Children's specific books will be at the end of this post.**
