Dear Friends of  A N ovel  E xperience,   

          It's the merry month of May! We've put a lot of thought and discussion about our store's policies for book sales and we've decided to continue to offer curbside, home delivery (and on-line at Bookshop which will take you to our very own page). We cannot wait to see you again in the store, but we're holding off in the interests of our staff and our wonderful supporters--thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your continued support.  

      Good news! Our wonderful booksellers are returning, allowing us to expand our hours to 10 am to 5 pm. Monday through Saturday. And, we are now doing our groups on Zoom. Please see below for schedules and times--if you want to join, just zip us a line at if you'd like an invite to one or more of the meetings. We miss you all, but most importantly, we hope that you and your family are safe and well. 

      Alert! Mother's Day is in May. Sunday, May 10th.We are working on a "gift bag" idea that will include a book and an assortment of nifty little gifts. We'll begin showing you them on Facebook starting on Monday--you can choose a couple and choose a book--we'll be happy to suggest a title if you tell us about your mom. Stay tuned!  

     So, intrepid fellow travelers through this challenging landscape! We're here for you and our community! We're doing curbside service in the back alley of the store (it is so nice to catch up), home delivery, or mail service (thank you, USPS workers!). Many folks have purchased gift certificates by phone. Call us, 770-567-1103, 10 to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday. We'll see if we have the book in the store, or we can order it for you. We'll get through this together.
