Santa Fe History on Sale Now!

What with free wi-fi at The Hacienda Nicholas Bed & Breakfast Inn, more and more of our guests opt to travel with Kindles and iPads rather than books.  However, nothing can replace the weight, smell and feel of a real book.  For you book-lovers out there who also want a souvenir of Santa Fe history, here is your golden opportunity.  From now until March 31, 2011 The Palace of the Governors Book Shop is selling over 1,200 books from their stock of fiction, biography, history and children's books.  The books are priced as low as $1, though better titles are up to $20.

The museum is also a great place to learn about the history of Santa Fe, from the Spanish Colonial Period (1540-1821), Mexican (1821-1846), U.S. Territorial (1846-1912 through statehood (1912).  You may also want to check out the extensive collection of photo archives (over 800,000 prints, negatives, post cards, etc) documenting the history of New Mexico.

An added bonus - your purchase at the Palace of the Governors helps support the Museum of New Mexico and artists from around the world.
