“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
--Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Little By Little
The Book Shop is very fortunate to have recently acquired 175+ boxes of books (final count unknown as we are still packing and hauling). We will be adding these books to our collection throughout the summer (and probably well into fall). Plus we are continuously getting books from our wonderful customers in exchange for store credit. This means the store is getting a lot of new stock which will help fill out areas throughout the store. I suggest stopping by often this summer to see what is new in each week! Here is just a taste of some of the books we will be seeing.
Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
9 Volume Set
21 Volume Set
Based on the definitive Charles Dickens Edition, which was revised by the author in 1860, each volume features up to 76 original illustrations by such notable Victorian artists as "Phiz" and George Cruikshank, and an informative introduction by a prominent writer or critic.
These are cool collections called "Treasure Chests", each one has a book about the time period, replicas of items that would have been used in that time, and a secret compartment! A great activity and learning kit for kids (and adults!)
