THANK YOU FROM JANE

To all of my wonderful customers and friends over the last 32 years, I just wanted to say thank you. It has been a joy and a pleasure to be a part of your lives and the lives of your children and grandchildren. For a long time now I have said, The Bookstore has the best customers on the planet and after the evening of January 7th, in a dangerous and wretched ice storm, when so many of you ventured out to wish me well, it more than proved my point! Thank you for the kind words, the lovely thoughts and all of the beautiful cards, notes of “wisdom”, and gifts. You are all too kind.

      With warmest regards,

        Jane Stroh 

   

Keep reading! Keep loving books and keep buying your books at:

FEBRUARY NEWS

Bookstore Pick of the Month - Love by Matt de la Pena

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

" A] poetic reckoning of the importance of love in a child's life . . . eloquent and moving."--People

"Everything that can be called love -- from shared joy to comfort in the darkness -- is gathered in the pages of this reassuring, refreshingly honest picture book."--The New York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice / Staff Picks From the Book Review

From Newbery Medal-winning author Matt de la Pena and bestselling illustrator Loren Long comes a story about the strongest bond there is and the diverse and powerful ways it connects us all.

"In the beginning there is light
and two wide-eyed figures standing near the foot of your bed
and the sound of their voices is love.
...
A cab driver plays love softly on his radio
while you bounce in back with the bumps of the city
and everything smells new, and it smells like life."

HOW WAS OUR FIRST MONTH AS NEW OWNERS?

In one word... BUSY!  We have been working hard to restock the shelves, investigate & order new sideline items, and organize the office & back room.  We have adjusted to the new computer system.  Shannon and Sue attended the American Booksellers Association and brought back many new ideas to try.  And, of course, we sold many of our favorite books!
