Where’s Waldo in Augusta!


Where’s Waldo? In Augusta, of course.

He’s 25 this year and, to celebrate, the famous fellow in the striped shirt and black-rimmed specs is visiting 20 different local businesses all through the month of July. Those who spot him can win prizes, including buttons, books, and more.

Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a “Find Waldo in Augusta! search list with the names of all the businesses, and collect an “I Found Waldo at ___________” card for each Waldo they spot. Collecting cards in 15 or more businesses and turning them in at The Book Tavern at 1026 Broad St. will win a Waldo button and an entry for other, larger prizes to be drawn at a Waldo party on July 31. The Grand Prize is a complete six-volume set of Waldo books. People who prefer a shorter version of the hunt can collect the cards from eight businesses and pick up a Waldo button at The Book Tavern.

In celebration of Waldo’s longevity and popularity, his American publisher, Candlewick Press, is teaming up with the American Booksellers Association and 250 independent bookstores all across the country, including The Book Tavern here in Augusta, to have fun and encourage people to visit local businesses. There is no charge to participate, and the game lasts for the entire month of July.

Facebook Vs. Blog

Theoretically, I prefer the blog to the facebook. Unfortunately, it is so much easier to post to facebook than to a blog. It fits in so easily with the daily activity of the business. Any ideas?
