Dear Friends of  A N ovel  E xperience,   

          It's been soooooo great to see you in the store! Thanks for doing the social distancing thing while browsing--we love catching up and talking about....books! What a relief! We are also doing the curbside pick up at the back so we can get that book to you. We're Zooming for book groups...and, becoming reacquainted with the spotty broadband here...but, make no mistake--we'll put up with it so we can live in this beautiful place. We figure that electricity came to our area in 1938 so broadband should be just around the corner...maybe by 2038. 

       This is the perfect time to kick back and start reading a series that you've put on the back burner. Think Lee Child's Jack Reacher series,  the Irish Country Doctor stories or James Mitchener's around the world tales of places and peoples. If you start Janet Evanovich's A-Y crime series the pandemic will be over--and everybody vaccinated before you read them all! Chris' newest favorite series is Louise Penny's Chief Inspector Gamache mysteries, all of which take place in tiny Three Pines--a town much like Zebulon but with way more murders. And, we are trying to get in as many Sherryl Woods Sweet Magnolia titles as fast as we can! ITM, we've put a ton of used kid's books on our back porch--ride by and pick out 5 per kid--we appreciate everyone who has donated books and your help in building our future customer base! 

        We are open for browsing Monday through Saturday. We're also continuing curbside and home delivery. Order books on-line at Bookshop which will take you to our very own page. Thanks so much from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support!  

      We miss you all, but most importantly, we hope that you and your family are safe and well.  Call us, 770-567-1103, 10 to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday if we can be of help. We'll see if we have the book in the store, or we can order it for you. We'll get through this together. Happy 4th!

                                                                 All of us at A Novel Experience
