There are two kinds of people in this universe:  those that come in all eager for their summer reading, and those that come in looking like Socrates reaching for a hot cup of hemlock.

Kids, let me assure you that it's not that bad.  It is, in fact, fabulous. 

So, whether you need Mr. Hundey's history fun pack (The History of the World in 6 Glasses, A Little History of the World, and the Princeton Review's Cracking the AP World History Exam), or you need Fahrenheit 451, Catch-22, A Farewell to Arms, The Things They Carried, 1984, Of Mice and Men, or any of the other incredible bits of literature out there, be assured we have 'em.  And at 20% off list price, which can save you a lot of dough.

Join us for our book club at the Macomb Academy, 23211 Prospect Ave, Armada, MI 48005 at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, February 17.  We'll meet on the third Wednesday of the every month thereafter..

This month's selection is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer.

" I wonder how the book got to Guernsey? Perhaps there is some sort of secret homing instinct in books that brings them to their perfect readers."

January 1946: London is emerging from the shadow of the Second World War, and writer Juliet Ashton is looking for her next book subject. Who could imagine that she would find it in a letter from a man she s never met, a native of the island of Guernsey, who has come across her name written inside a book by Charles Lamb .

As Juliet and her new correspondent exchange letters, Juliet is drawn into the world of this man and his friends and what a wonderfully eccentric world it is. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society born as a spur-of-the-moment alibi when its members were discovered breaking curfew by the Germans occupying their island boasts a charming, funny, deeply human cast of characters, from pig farmers to phrenologists, literature lovers all.

Juliet begins a remarkable correspondence with the society s members, learning about their island, their taste in books, and the impact the recent German occupation has had on their lives. Captivated by their stories, she sets sail for Guernsey, and what she finds will change her forever.

Written with warmth and humor as a series of letters, this novel is a celebration of the written word in all its guises, and of finding connection in the most surprising ways.



What's new in 2016

We came back from our holiday vacation in the Land of Cookies all fired up for some new organization in the store.  I read "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up," so I'm eager to make everything in my life spark joy.  (I think I went to school with a Joy Sparks.)
So, when the chest cold finally goes away, the store is going to go through a nice overhaul to make it all pretty and nice.
No fair saying that you heard this from me last year.  Last year I read "Organizing from the Inside Out," and it didn't mention anything about sparking joy.  Sparking joy makes all the difference, I am assured.
Also, I'm going to lose 20 pounds.  And learn French.
Yup.
