FEBRUARY 2020 NEWSLETTER
Winter Institute is a national bookseller conference and we took away so much from it to make Books Around the Corner even better. A lot of the changes will be behind the scenes but it will lead to even more books being added to our collection over the next six months. Our aim is to always be carefully curating our current collection and spending hours each day discovering new and diverse titles for you all to enjoy. We included even more titles you can preorder in the next few months below. Our wall chalkboard calendar will be done in only a few days and will have our book club schedule along with other events we hold in the shop. WE WILL BE CLOSED THURSDAY FEBRUARY 6TH INSTEAD OF THE ENTIRE WEEK.
A reminder special orders can be placed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays by 11:30am. 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.
