We couldn’t reach Bookazine in Bayonne, N.J., earlier in the week, because its phone lines and e-mail are down. But COO Richard Kallman reports that the wholesaler's facility is undamaged. “We shut everything down in preparation for the storm. Everything is fine. We got very lucky,” he says. “It’s just a matter of getting the power back up and running. They’re telling us it’s a matter of days.”

In the interim, any customers trying to reach Bookazine, can contact Kallman directly at: bzrichk@aol.com. Bookazine employees can meet with staff on November 2 at 11 a.m. at the offices.
