Hi there,

I ordered the Peoria Memories II book and received it recently in the mail...now I've decided to buy the Peoria Memories I book but I can't find it anywhere on the Internet...not even Ebay...

Is this book still being sold or is it already out of print?

thank you for your help,
jangenie

I just saw it this morning. They have it at Walgreens at University & Pioneer Park. You could probably buy one directly from the Journal Star.

How is book 2?

You might also try "I Know You Like A Book" in the Heights. BTW, they are having a special sale of books including first editions, author signed, and/or other unique books on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. If you like books you might want to check that out.

Anyone who enjoys local history should pick up the book "It Didn't Play In Peoria"

Hi Everyone,

Thank you all for the great ideas! I'll definitely look into these new leads.

We enjoyed the second volume of "Peoria Memories"...but then perhaps it was because we could identify with many of the photos...

I haven't been to the book store "I know you like a book"...the sale sounds interesting!

I'm not familiar with the book "It Didn't Play in Peoria". What is it about?

It's chronicle of missed opportunities and fumbles in our city's history that kept us from becoming great. {HipCat - you would like this book}
