October 2019 Books Around the Corner Newsletter


Happy Fall Ya’ll! It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Pumpkins, warm cider, haunted houses, and more! Bring your teddy bear and march with us in the Teddy Bear Parade on Saturday September 28th and support us. More details HERE or email info@booksaroundthecorner.com. Check out what your community is reading to the right from our latest Book Talk Book Club. In addition TWO author readings and signings, Sean Walter and Stephanie Solomon, we always have our book clubs and mark your calendars now for our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY PARTY on Saturday November 2nd. Oh and did I mention Drag Queen Storytime with Poison Waters is back at the end of October! More details below and on our Facebook Page!

A reminder special orders can be placed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11am. Did you know we not only order but we preorder?! For no additional cost you can have your book ready to pick up on the Tuesday it is released. See more details below. This also helps support authors and our bookshop. Ask us for more details the next time you’re in!  Another service we’ll be offering to our customers is wish lists! Provide us with your name and any books on your wish list and we’ll add them to our system so your friends and family can check in with us for birthdays and holidays. We also offer gift certificates too!

DID YOU KNOW….We host birthday parties, baby showers, company parties, and more! Email us for rates and availability at info@booksaroundthecorner.com


Just a reminder that you can always reserve forthcoming books, either in person or via an email invoice.

We’ve had a lot of customers ask lately how they can help spread the word and support Books Around the Corner. Here are a few things you can do!

  1. Leave a Google, Facebook, and Yelp Review! It really helps people find us! FREE!
  2. Sponsor a Shelf ($50) 
    Your name (or business name) will appear on a small plaque on a shelf in our bookshop. An example is included below. Thank you to those who have already sponsored a shelf!
  3. Sponsor an Event or Book Club ($200) 
    Your name or the name of your business will be featured on a flyer, in the newsletter (now over 1,000 subscribers), and in a Facebook event for a month leading up to the event.

Thank you for choosing to SHOP SMALL and for making us your one stop bookshop. Continue to spread the word and tell friends and family about all we have going on at Books Around the Corner. We appreciate every purchase you make big and small and work very hard to bring in diverse high quality additions every week new and used! Happy Reading!
