Flying Into February

Thank you to all of you who shopped here in January, we had a good month and look forward to seeing you again in February! Especially a pleasure to see a couple of surprise “summer people” who dropped in last weekend.


New this week

Still Me by the very popular Jojo Moyes, author of Me Before You and After You, a new novel sure to please her many fans.

Our Lady of the Prairie by Thisbe Nissen came in the door today and has moved to the top of my “to read” pile. Loved her earlier books The Good People of New York and Osprey Island.


Now in Paperback

Stranger in the Wood by Michael Finkel tells the extraordinary story of the last true hermit.

The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead won both The National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize – historical fiction with just a bit of fantasy thrown in.

Atomic City Girls by Janet Beard, a work of historical fiction about the Manhattan project and the hundreds of young women employed at a city that didn’t exist. 

We are now carrying Cobble Hill jigsaw puzzles, in addition to Ravensburger and Eurographics. I find it interesting that demographics have made jigsaw puzzles more popular than ever. My old Mom who can no longer follow a story in a novel, or a film on television fills her time with crossword puzzles and jigsaw puzzles. I have heard from my customers that many of you have the same experience with aging parents. Doing a jigsaw puzzle is a nice way to spend time together, or to keep an elderly person with memory loss feeling occupied. Come in and see all the great puzzles to choose from.

If you watch CBC you’ve been seeing the advertisements for Caught, a mini series beginning later this month. It looks like it will be as suspenseful and fast paced as the novel by Lisa Moore – a really good read!

The sale table is full of mostly mystery novels – a great selection at great prices.
