January/February 2023 E-Newsletter
Welcome Readers,

Hello, Valentines! We hope you had a lovely year so far, and we hope you've loved the books you recently read. Goodness knows we loved recommending them to you!

We've had a bit of "technical difficulty" getting our newsletters out, so we have a little different format here. The reviews are on our website, and there are 3 links in the newsletter for you to check out what we've been up to "in the stacks". You can click once here, Newsletter Reviews, to see all 3 lists (Fiction, Mystery, and Nonfiction) or read more below for a sneak peek at what's there.

Our Google Photo Album this time has much to see, if you are inclined to take a look. The bookstore is bustling just as it should be! We owe it all to you. 

Alli and Amy and all the
Book Bin Booksellers
