Been thinking about thumbing through “The Cottages of Lake Worth” hardcover book?

Thinking about purchasing a book? Well. There’s good news, bad news, and where you can purchase one of these hardcover books:

“We are running out of books!”
Out of an initial printing of 1,000 books, 950+ have been sold already. Our printer can’t believe it. But it’s true. Below are the ways to purchase the hardcover book which, with tax, is a little less than USD$35.

FYI, Mr. Carleton Varney recently wrote a book review about “The Cottages” book for the Palm Beach Daily News, aka, The Shiny Sheet.

The conventional belief in the publishing world is you need an on-line retailer to sell books so quickly. “The Cottages of Lake Worth” hardcover book is what’s referred to as an “outlier”, showing that commonly accepted beliefs aren’t always true.

And it doesn’t hurt upon learning Lake Worth Commissioner Andy Amoroso dropped off books on his recent trip to Washington, D.C. to Congresswoman Lois Frankel and Senator Bill Nelson. What’s happening now is the book is beginning to transcend just this region in Central Palm Beach County and getting attention elsewhere in the country.

Who knows, maybe soon the book will get attention in places like our too-long-neglected Sister Cities of Lappeenranta in Finland, Saint-Marc, Haiti, and our Sister City in England, Southend-on-Sea.

To go and purchase a book, here are the ways:
  • Go Downtown and visit Andy at the City’s newsstand located at 600 Lake Ave. (corner of Lake Ave. and ‘L’ Street).
  • Visit Awe Flowers located around the corner at 5 North ‘L’ St., a brand new flower shop here in the City.
  • Go and see Barry at the Lake Worth Beach Tee Shirt Co., located at our wonderful Beach!
  • Another Downtown location that has the book is the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County located at 601 Lake Ave. (open 10:00–5:00, Tuesday through Saturday).
  • Or visit the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County Historical Museum Gift Shop located at 300 N. Dixie Hwy. in West Palm Beach.
  • And, of course, the book can also be purchased on-line.
Some time very soon we’ll know how many books have been ordered and soon thereafter learn when the books will arrive here in the little City of Lake Worth.
