News – Week of 22 June 2018
Returning from several weeks in Newfoundland to full on summer in Parry Sound! And all set for summer at Parry Sound Books – the store is stocked and we are ready for you to shop for your summer reading.
One of the best books I read, of many, during my time away was The Ghost Keeper by Natalie Morrill. This is an astounding first novel from a young Canadian writer. The story is set in Vienna, before, during and after the Second World War. It is beautifully crafted and tells a deeply moving and important story.
Bee by Britta Teckentrup is another very lovely Peek-Through Picture Book by this very talented writer and illustrator.
The Land Of Stories novels by Chris Colfer have become one of our best selling series for young readers – if you have a precocious early reader in the family this series is just right – but also good for young teens. The most recent, the sixth in the series, Worlds Collide, is now in paperback.
We have a great selection of hand made St. Armand Paper in stock. Professional quality drawing and painting paper made on the Lachine canal in Montreal.
The 2018/2019 and 2019 Moleskine date books are in, as well as Polestar engagement calendars – get yours while they are still available.
Have a wonderful weekend – safe on the water and the roads of this beautiful place. We are indeed lucky to spend our time here on Georgian Bay.
