you never know gas You Never Know Where Your Book May Sell

We just returned from a road trip and out in the middle of the desert we stopped at the one and only gas station. It was part food mart, part fast food joint and the only civilization for miles and miles. And right up front stood a kiosk for “Choice Books.”

I recognized most of the books; a couple of them by friends of mine; a few I’ve read and even recommended. I’ve even seen Choice Books kiosks in the past and have bought books off of them!

But what surprised even me was that:

(1) this “hole in the wall” carried Christian books;

(2) They had 2 full kiosks of books–one in English and one in Spanish

(3) There were books on surviving panic attacks, high blook sugar, and dealing with depression–all books reaching the same people I try to reach with books on illness.

Their web site states:

Choice Books sells over 5 million books annually. The organization purchases books from over 80 publishers and sells them from more than 9,000 displays in retail locations (i.e. supermarkets, mass merchandisers, airports, drug stores, travel centers, gift shops, etc.) scattered across the continental United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.

Worth pursuing, huh?
