Bookstore keeps readers turning the page on SPI

SOUTH PADRE ISLAND — Paragraphs on the Boulevard gives any vacationing visitor options for surfing through the pages of a good book.

The Island is great fun but visitors needing to step into another place can get away for a while with a good book from the Island book store.

On Saturday, Corrien Jeter will have her book signing and reading from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Monday, Feb. 8, Rev. Eli Sheldon is having a book signing, also from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., for his book titled “SouthPadre Island and Port Isabel Colorful Stories.”
