Sign Up Your Team,
Build a Puzzle, Win Prizes  
 
We love puzzles almost as much as we love books, so when we heard that one of our favorite puzzlemakers, Ravensburger, wanted us to do a puzzle tournament, we jumped at the chance. On Saturday, March 28th, starting at 11:00am, teams of four will participate in a 500-piece puzzle building contest. The first team to build their puzzle, or come closest, wins a host of prizes! To sign up your team (or just yourself to be placed on a team), email us at Marketing@TheBookies.com!  

Fresh Ink
We've got lots of new paperbacks, new series, and new wonders for you to behold!
    
This is an endlessly cute book filled with wonder and imagination. What happens when a boy grows 'dragonfruit' in his family's garden? Well, a dragon grows, what else? Now he has to hide the dragon from his family, his cat, and the world at large.  
 
 
 
 
Daisy Jones & the Six (paperback)
Taylor Jenkins Reid
Daisy Jones spent weeks on the bestseller list last year, and the paperback is sure to be a hit again. This NPR Pick for Book of the Year 2019 is a great read. Whatever happened to the Daisy Jones & The Six band? Rock out and find out here.  
 
 
 
 
A boy and a demon must put aside their enmity to save their worlds. This sequel to The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding is now in paperback!  
 
 
 
Sutherland's bestselling blockbuster, Wings of Fire, is back, but in the past. This new book looks at the history of Pyrrhia through new eyes. Sure to be a must-read for every fan when it hits our shelves on March 3rd!  
 
 
    
 
We loved this when it came out in hardback, and we love now that it's coming out in paperback. Young Tilly has spent time in her grandparents' bookshop since her mother vanished, right up until all her favorite characters, like Anne of Green Gables, start showing up at the shop. What do they know about her missing mom? Make sure and read this one before the second volume comes out this May!   
 
 
This National Book Award Finalist is out in paperback after a huge debut in 2019. This book of high fantasy, described by the author as a "Black Lord of the Rings", features a hunter searching for a lost boy.
       
Seuss Bingo is Here!
 
By now we hope everyone has seen our Dr. Seuss display at the front of our store! This time each year we celebrate his birthday (March 2) along with Read Across America Day. But this year, we're doing a special SEUSS BINGO at our store with our in-store Seuss day happening on Tuesday, March 3! Come in today (or at our Tuesday Storytime with Bookie Carolyn) to get your cards and to find out all about the prizes and fun we're having!

Black History Month
 
Black History Month is drawing to a close, but we hope you'll stop by to see our display of titles about the importance of Black History in America. To celebrate the month, we've had a display up at the front of our store and, for the first time, we've created a virtual listing of all the titles on the display. You can find this list at the top of our new CURRENT DISPLAYS IN OUR STORE page on our website by CLICKING HERE

Don't forget, David A. Kelly will be joining us in store this month to sign all his books including his new hit, THE COLORADO CURVEBALL. Join us Saturday, February 29th at 11:00am CLICK HERE FOR ALL THE DETAILS.  




The Game Board (with Bookie Karla)
Ages 10 & Up OR 16 & Up

This. Game. Is. WILD! It's a trivia game that can be played in real time. What do we mean? You can play either the regular version, just the cards in the box, or an online version using Google where you get current answers for things like, "What is the temperature in Costa Rica right now?" and online tasks. It's a great way to get tech-focused kids involved in a game, and a fun way to learn some real world trivia as it happens! Want to see a video explaining it all? CLICK HERE! Want to buy it? Come into our store today or CLICK HERE to order online!
