The year has rolled over again – 2017. Hard to believe. My mother voiced many platitudes that I didn’t appreciate as I was growing up – “don’t wish the days away – the years will soon disappear” was one. Now I understand.
We are now closing on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday for the months of January and February. We are open 9 – 5:30 Wednesday through Saturday. Special orders will arrive as quickly as always and new books arrive every day.
Some of the most recent new arrivals worth mentioning are –
The Strays by Emily Bitto
A fabulous new novel set in Australia in the 1930s – 60s. A brilliant story of girlhood friendship – one of the best books you’ll read this year.
Flight of Dreams by Ariel Lawhon
Now out in paperback this is terrific historical fiction about the ill fated Hindenburg and those who were affected by the tragedy.
The Five Roses Guide to Good Cooking has finally been re-printed! This classic cookbook is required on all kitchen bookshelves. We’ve been using it for at least four generations in my family – the pancake page is a mess.
Happy, Happy New Year to all of you from all of us at Parry Sound Books.
