What other are saying about Redbery Books
From the June 30, 2012 Northland News Center
Cable, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) - With over $20 million generated by the tourism industry in Bayfield County alone, residents of towns, like Cable, and surrounding counties, recognize its importance to the region. "Obviously for a county, it's incredibly important. And, it's the case for Sawyer County, and Ashland County, and probably Douglas County," says James Bolen, Executive Director for the Cable Area Chamber of Commerce. Bolen says, to be a successful destination, you have to emphasize what comes natural to the area: "The Chequamegon National Forest is 850,000 acres of public land, with rivers, and streams and trails for people to explore."Even the art scene in the tiny town can offer big city opportunities.

"A serious bookstore that likes to have fun, with selections for the whole family" according to Four Seasons, Monday, July 27, 2009:

family," eclipses many other bookstores in the diverse features,
programs, inventory and special events it proffers. It is a compliment
to this part of the northwestern Wisconsin that owner Bev Bauer decided
to set up shop in this "neck of the woods." Bauer has an abiding love
of books - no surprise for someone who spent a summer in South Africa
in a volunteer program setting up libraries in small villages.
"Literacy and connecting people to books has always been a passion of
mine," she said.

We’re in good company according to this article from Isthmus News out of Madison, WI:
“The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop got me thinking about some of the famous bookstores I’ve loved browsing in—City Lights in San Francisco; the Grolier Poetry bookshop in Cambridge, Mass.; Prairie Lights in Iowa City. But just as satisfying, maybe even more satisfying in a way, is finding the very appealing shops that are, in comparison, in the middle of nowhere: Redbery Books in Cable, Wisconsin; Ocooch Books and Libations in Richland Center, for instance."
