JANUARY 2020 NEWSLETTER
We’ve had a wonderful holiday season and it’s thanks to all of you! You’ll see some exciting changes at Books Around the Corner in the new year including updated window displays, and expanding our children’s area! Our book clubs will resume in January and our new book clubs will premiere! Of course we’ll be adding to our collection as we always do with a balance of new and used books. The support you give us helps us grow into our space more and more each year and offer you carefully curated titles. One new ongoing display will fit with the THIRTEENTH BOOK CLUB we’ll be adding in Spring. Stay tuned! WE WILL BE CLOSED DEC 30TH – JAN 1ST.
We all know from your reviews and support that we’re your favorite bookshop in Gresham BUT we’d love your vote to help other bookworms find us! Please take a second and vote Books Around the Corner the Best Bookstore in Gresham. Voting ends 12/31.

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.
