Whether their children are headed to kindergarten or college, parents have one thing in common during the month of August - back-to-school shopping.

This season, parents will find an abundance of back-to-school deals at their neighborhood Books-A-Million, Inc. (NASDAQ:BAMM) during the state’s 2014 tax-free weekend. From study guides to locker accessories, classroom-conscious shoppers are sure to discover items that will better prepare their children for the year ahead, all riding the back of tax-free weekend across the country.

“Books-A-Million’s shelves are stocked with products that support learning in positive and nurturing ways,” said Mary Gallagher, Senior Vice President of Merchandising. “For every child who needs a dictionary and every sophomore syllabus that includes Edith Hamilton, our stores will help parents with all of their shopping needs.”

Books-A-Million stores will offer such back-to-school necessities as school reading list books, reference materials, dictionaries, thesauruses, test preparation guides for those wanting to get a jump start on studying for the SAT, and even graphic tees for those looking to bring style to the first day of school.

“Parents have a big task when it comes to back-to-school shopping,” said Jeff Skipper, Vice President of Marketing for Books-A-Million. “We hope to make their job easier by being a one-stop-shop for any books and study materials that are on their list.”

Looking for the Nook, Nook HD+ and Nook Glowlight? E-readers offer students an amazing way to consolidate their vast collections of required reading into one lightweight device - and Books-A-Million is a prime go-to for tax-free weekend deals on these essential academic devices.
