#PoemMonday is back! Because we had so much fun last year stretching our imaginations and to write dozens of poems, once again, everyone who orders from our website on the Monday November 28th (#CyberMonday Dun Dun DUHHHH!!!!) will receive an original poem in their confirmation email written by one of PSB’s libromancers. (Here’s a selection of what we wrote last year.)
I've read more than one novel in the last year about people who are slipping into dementia, or have severe mental disabilities, or who are living with the psychological effects of a significant trauma.
As book lovers you know, when you’re looking for a recommendation, engines and algorithms can’t replace a face-to-face conversation with a knowledgeable bookseller. But sometimes, despite your best intentions, you can’t get to your local bookstore before you need the book. And there are, of course, many book lovers who don’t even have a local bookstore to begin with.
Hello, Internet People! We are less than two weeks away from the midnight party event of the summer. No big announcements other than make sure you've got your wizard robes and wands at the ready - rumor has it we'll be giving out Hogwarts acceptance letters as prizes! Also, registration for our Harry Potter fan fic open mic is still open. See here for more details! This week our blog post comes from Bookseller Mackenzie. The only way it could be cuter is if it came with a golden retriever.
Twice a year The Millions does us all a literary favor by listing all the forthcoming books to get excited about. Thus, roughly twice a year, they also inspire us to put together our list of books we are particularly looking forward to.
The idea of “summer reading” being mostly lighter, fluffier books comes from the fact that after a school year’s worth of intellectual effort, it’s nice to take a break and read undemanding books. And it is nice to kick back, relax, watch characters do interesting things in interesting places, and not work very hard for awhile.
Welcome to July, otherwise known as HARRY POTTER MONTH! If I were running the show that alone would suffice for an Important Announcement. Since I'm not, here's the official midnight release party announcement of the week: We'll be running Harry Potter MadLibs! (Side note: I just received the Harry Potter coloring sheets yesterday and they are fantastic.) Lastly, there are still spots open for the fan fic open mic. Sign up here! This week's blog post comes from Bookseller Tildy:
Our very own Carter Hasegawa will be publishing the photography book Must Wash Hands: A Bathroom Reader in Pictures in February 2017. (You can preorder a signed copy here!)
Happy 4th, folks! We've entered the home stretch - Harry Potter's birthday month! We're taking the holiday off of our Harry Potter blog series and will see you all bright and early next Monday, July 11 Hope you're all keeping cool and having fun today.
