December 2016


The holidays are right around the corner and we're looking forward to helping you find the perfect book for everyone on your list.  Our Holiday Catalog  is a great place to start or stop in and let us give you personalized recommendations.

We also want you to receive great gifts yourself, so stop by the store and create your own wish list. Then email your friends and family to let them know they'll receive 20% off anything purchased from us off your registered list!

Since many of you will be shopping for both adults and kid's this time of year, we've combined our two newsletters into one for this month.

I hope you all saw yesterday's email inviting you to attend our 1st ever Customer Appreciation Event tomorrow night, Thursday, December 1st, from 5-8pm. You'll receive 20% off all your purchases and we'll have wine and cheese for a relaxed shopping environment!

Any time you spend $50 in one transaction, you may pick a free ARC from our gift cart. When you spend $100 in one transaction, you will get 10% off of any merchandise purchased at that time (excludes event tickets) as well as two free ARCs from our gift cart.

December New Releases
Jungle Jungle by Dan Kainen and Kathy Wollard
Dense and humid and filled with secrets, the rain forest is home to more than half the world's plants and animals. Using unique Photicular technology, Jungle parts the mysterious veil of this sun-dappled land and reveals -- in fluid 3-D motion -- the living exuberance within. Watch a tarantula scuttle across the forest floor. A dancing whipsnake flick its tongue. A Bengal tiger on the prowl, and a brilliant green and red macaw soar above the canopy. It's magical! In a world saturated with video, Photicular technology weaves a very special spell, capturing intimate, moving moments of life on earth, and tapping deeply into the reader's imagination. Experience it for yourself.

The Daily Show (The Book) The Daily Show (The Book): An Oral History as Told by Jon Stewart, the Correspondents, Staff and Guests by Chris Smith
For almost seventeen years, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart brilliantly redefined the borders between television comedy, political satire, and opinionated news coverage. It launched the careers of some of today's most significant comedians, highlighted the hypocrisies of the powerful, and garnered 23 Emmys, and through it all, The Daily Show has been a cultural touchstone. Now the show's behind-the-scenes gags, controversies, and camaraderie will be chronicled by the players themselves, from legendary host Jon Stewart to the star cast members and writers, plus some of The Daily Show's most prominent guests and adversaries.

General & Historical Fiction
Victoria Victoria by Daisy Goodwin
Drawing on Queen Victoria's diaries, which she first started reading when she was a student at Cambridge University, Daisy Goodwin brings the young 19th-century monarch, who would go on to reign for 63 years, richly to life in this magnificent novel. Early one morning, less than a month after her eighteenth birthday, Alexandrina Victoria is roused from bed with the news that her uncle William IV has died and she is now Queen of England. The men who run the country have doubts about whether this sheltered young woman, who stands less than five feet tall, can rule the greatest nation in the world. Despite her age, however, the young queen is no puppet. Daisy Goodwin's impeccably researched and vividly imagined new book brings readers Queen Victoria as they have never seen her before.

This Is Our Song This Is Our Song by Samantha Chase
Riley Shaughnessy knew that to stand out in his large family, he'd have to go big. Making a name for himself as a musician wasn't easy, but he followed his dreams to rock-star success. But the relentless expectations of fans is not helping the slump he's in now. So of course the person who attracts him is the woman who is not impressed by fame. Entertainment reporter Savannah Daly is completely unfazed by pretty-boy rock stars. She's just here to get her interview and write her story. But spending an entire month with the Shaughnessys is going to show Savannah a side of Riley she never could have guessed.
