February 16th, 2010

This week's newsletter will answer three important questions.

1. Does the store now have Soda Can Robots and other cool new Science Toys?

2. Does the store now have a great new line of Jig Saw Puzzles such as Festival Bound pictured to the left?

3. Were members of our Teen reading Group interviewed for a big article in Publisher's Weekly called Apocalypse Now?

The answer to 1. and 2. can be found by checking the links for more information or stopping by the store and handling the merchandise yourself. As far as The PW article is concerned, the kids did a great job: give it a read!

Here they are! Our weekly picks for the two best: two hardcover, two paperback, and two children's books. The very best new arrivals to leap out of the box and onto our shelves this week. Call or email us if you want more information on any of these titles, or to have us hold you a copy. Or stop in and check them out in person. We'd love to see you. Thanks as always for sharing your reading with us!
