A rainy Parry Sound Day and at Parry Sound Books we are back to regular business hours of 9 am – 5:30 pm, Monday to Saturday. We are closed on Sundays until the beginning of December.

Though I had some time away the store was busy, with lots of new books arriving every day as always.

Something for Everyone!!


The 2019 Friendship Book -  a perennial favourite!

Half Spent was the Night by Ami McKay is a Yuletide offering that takes place when the witches of New York gather before the fire on the days between Christmas and New Year’s.

A Map of Days is the fourth novel in the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children series by Ransom Riggs. In a brave new world, with unimaginable dangers, the adventure has just begun!

House of Gold by Natasha Solomons is a sweeping family saga set in Vienna and England in the early years of the 20th century.

The Clockmaker’s Daughter by Kate Morton has been flying off the shelves, a story spanning 150 years of family secrets, love affairs, murder, mystery, thievery, and art.

A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult is another book that has sold well this past week. As always this author tackles a complicated issue in a gripping and nuanced novel.


Unsheltered by Barbara Kingsolver tells the story of two families, in two centuries, navigating the end of the world as they know it.

Erebus by Michael Palin is the story of one ship, two epic voyages, and the greatest naval mystery of all times!

Tombland by C J Sansom is the 7th in the most excellent Shardlake mystery series set in the 1500s – read one and you’ll read them all!


In A House of Lies by Ian Rankin is a new John Rebus thriller – everyone has something to hide, everyone has secrets, and nobody is innocent.

Careless Love by Peter Robinson is the 25th Inspector Banks novel – as always deftly plotted and utterly suspenseful. His previous book Sleeping in the Ground is now out in paperback.

The Reckoning by John Grisham takes readers from the John Crow South to the jungles of the Philippines during World War II, layered with legal suspense.
