This week in book world

Happy Monday beloved readers,

Lots going on in the book world this week. We continue to expand our new book offerings by beginning to arrange our ordering process for schools and libraries. We're very much looking forward to providing to the community on a larger scale.

Both Vickie and I are tremendously excited for the release of Jim Butchers newest Dresden Files novel tomorrow. Ghost Story is much awaited and we are eager to have it in our hands. In celebration we will begin carrying the entire Dresden Files series new in store. If you haven't read them, you're totally missing out. Harry Dresden is one of my favorite fantasy heroes in recent years.

On a much more somber note, this past weekend began the liquidation of almost 400 Borders locations. Both Vickie and I spent many years peddling literature at Borders and are saddened to see the company go. We send out best to our fellow booksellers. This will be a hard couple of weeks for them. Feel free to share a Borders story in the comments below.

Lastly, please check our website for our updated list of most wanted books.

Not just any books, new books. We're not talking new to us books. These are brand new, never opened straight from the publisher books. We are super excited to be able to have a better selection of in demand titles for our readers.

Mockingjay? yeah, we've got that.

Game of Thrones? We've got that too, all of the Ice and Fire novels even.

Been meaning to read The Help? We can get you started on that.

We can Special Order for you too if we don't have the title you're looking for. No more "We had that for a little while, but some one picked it up last week" No, sir. We can now get you just about any book that you can dream up and it brings us great joy.

Not to belittle the broken in books, we've also gotten some amazing used books in. Beautiful R. A. Salvatore hardcovers (you should pick those up now if you dig him, because you get first dibs on them, but I don't have my collection complete yet). Also, All Souls in hardcover. Wicked good Boston biography, I highly recommend it.  Speaking of books by Boston authors, I touched my first hardcover copy of Shutter Island this week. It's beautiful and doesn't have a picture of the movie poster on the front or any thing.  

So, come in and check them out.

Especially Game of Thrones, but I'm not biased at all.
