December 2019 NEWSLETTER
WE ARE THANKFUL FOR ALL OF YOU SHOPPING SMALL THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. The holidays are just around the corner and so are we! We are thrilled to be partnering with the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association to provide the annual Holiday Book Catalog for the first time this holiday season. Please pick up your copy in our shop or click on the photo to the right. Email us if you’d like us to reserve or order any of the books in the catalog. As always we have oodles of book clubs and FOUR new ones starting in 2020. Our holiday hours will begin November 29th on Plaid Friday but we’re more excited about Shop Small Saturday! We’ll have a sale the whole weekend of November 29-December 1st. We are also participating in the Cocoa Crawl and are a Sip Stop featuring the wonderful hot cocoa by Carrefour Coffee who will also be selling coffee! Grab a cup before you head over to the tree lighting. We will also be changing our hours in January. Please see BELOW.
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! We also offer gift certificates too!
DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN CREATE A WISH LIST AT BOOKS AROUND THE CORNER?
Wish lists are perfect for birthdays, special gifts throughout the year, and around the holiday season. Come in to Books Around the Corner and write down anything that you would like in the shop or we have access to order even more items. After tell your friends and family about your list at Books Around the Corner and we will help them find the perfect gift off the wish list.
Just a reminder that you can always reserve forthcoming books, either in person or via an email invoice. Here is a brief list of just a few of the many books coming out this fall that you can pre-order through us.
