"Hot Picks" are books that are in high demand, in other words, popular, best sellers that everyone wants to get their hands on. We have some great Hot Picks in the store this week. For only $3.00 you can take home a book by Jane Smiley, Dennis Lehane or one of the many other best selling authors in our Hot Picks collection.

For the next 2 weeks we are inviting teachers, homeschoolers and other educators to shop our special collection of children's books and teaching materials. Any educator is eligible to receive 20% off on all materials bought for the classroom or for educational purposes. Tell the volunteers at the counter and you will get 20% off your purchase.

I spent the last 3 days vacationing in Harbor Springs. I'm having a little trouble getting back on track from our holiday routine. Luckily (for me and you) we have some pretty incredible volunteers that worked really hard (nothing new there) to get the store ready to open today. It's all stocked with lots of "new" books, CDs and DVDs. We have spotlights on Art, Cooking and Literature. Come on in and see what's new.

If you’re a Chicago Cubs Fan this would be a good week to visit the bookstore. We received a donation of Cubs books that cover everything from A to Z. We have so many books about the Cubs that we couldn’t get them all out into the store, so if you have a special interest ask me (Carol) and I’ll see if I can help.
