The Bookies Newsletter

Do you have a proud Colorado kiddo in your life?  
Well, we have the clothes for them!  
It's fall again, which means our newest batch of Colorado-branded clothing for the babies and toddlers in your world are here! While plenty of our popular favorites are restocked, we've got some very exciting new looks that we know you'll be wanting for the child or grandchild in your life this holiday season. Especially popular right now are our new vests (seen on the right). We've got far more than we can feature in one newsletter, so stop by today to see it all. If you can't find the size you want on our display, just ask any of our staff and we'll take a look in the back for you. Keep those lil' Bookies warm and stylish all through these cold months!

Fresh Ink 

Alan Gratz
From the man who brought us the blockbuster REFUGEE comes another tale of children facing the horrors of a country torn apart by violence. This time Gratz takes us to the island of Okinawa as the Americans invade during World War II. What happens when a local boy is forced to fight for his life, his island, and his family in a war he never wanted, against a country he doesn't even know? Who are the real monsters, and how easily can anyone become one?  
Rachel Renee Russell
The latest in the Dork Diaries series is all about a birthday party that may not be what our heroine wants -- but it could be even better!   
Rick Riordan  
The second volume in The Trials of Apollo series by Riordan is now out in paperback. A perfect present for the middle-grade reader in your life, just in time for any of the upcoming holidays.    
The incredible Broadway musical just left Denver, but you can now read the novelization of this moving tale anytime you want.  
Barbara Kingsolver 
What if you could experience a first-person perspective of a house at two different points in history? That's what New York Times bestseller Kingsolver introduces to us in her newest work. More than a century ago, a scientist tries to avoid scandal, while in our modern day, a couple faces ruin. A surefire hit for your next book club choice.

Markus Zusak
The highly anticipated follow-up novel by the author of THE BOOK THIEF, Bridge of Clay took over a decade for Zusak to finish. Now it's finally here. This is a story of brothers and the ties that bind, as well as the moments that separate us. 
Who Needs a Snowy Nap? 
We could not be more excited about Jan Brett's new book, THE SNOWY NAP. Jan's books are some of the most beautiful and lyrical children's books around, and we love sharing them with the little Bookies in our lives. We're all looking forward to curling up with The Snowy Nap during these winter months and using our new totes to haul our Jan Brett books around. If you want one, just buy a copy of The Snowy Nap and we'll give you one FREE (while supplies last)! They are going quickly, so act fast!

Authors, Authors, Everywhere!  
You never know who will be stopping by to sign their books at our store! Next time you come by, make sure to look for the AUTOGRAPHED or SIGNED stickers on books to find your next personal treasure!
