A very mixed-bag

Well, we're almost two weeks into the coldest October in 60 years in Minnesota. And it is currently snowing some very fat and wet flakes onto us. It is pretty--but a little early for my tastes. And, after a very exciting last month of baseball, the evil and uber-talented Yankees have sent us fishing. Yet, there are some exciting things to discuss--like outdoor baseball next year. And two great in-store events this week.

Tomorrow night at 7 p.m. John Minczeski will be here reading from his new book of poems, "A Letter to Serafin" and on Friday 10/16/09 David Rhodes will be here at 7 p.m. to read from his newly released "The Easter House." Both men are great writers and great representatives of what the Midwest can bring to literature.

Plus, if that isn't enough for you, we have stacks of copies of the fourth Jeff Kinney YA book "Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days" The kids can't get enough of this stuff.

Finally, the two new remainder shipments are here with lots of fantastic stuff in the $4.99-$8.99 range. Come get it before it's gone.

  1. We sold a LOAD of pre-ordered Wimpy Kids at our book fair, and they just arrived at the school today. Delivered books = happy, quiet kids, at least for a couple of hours.
