Santa isn’t the only one in the delivery business. Novel will begin delivering books with same-day delivery beginning December 5th.

“Christy Yarbro, one of the managing partners, came up with the idea,” says John Vergos, who, along with Matt Crowe, also is a managing partner. “And instead of buying our own van and trying it on a trial basis, we’re partnering with Blue Sky couriers of Memphis.

“If somebody wants, say, four copies of Michelle Obama’s book wrapped and delivered to their house, they’ll call us and the charge will be $7. Our area will extend from the Medical Center to Germantown.

‘“We’re trying this through January 15th to see if it works. Then we’ll sit down and re-evaluate.”

They’ve talked about doing this for some time, Vergos says. “We wrapped up our first year at the end of August. So, it’s something we finally decided, ‘Let’s do it.’ Especially with Blue Sky here, we can do it without a major investment and see how it goes.”
