What We’re Reading

Often if you come into the bookstore we’ll give you a personalized recommendation or happily oblige to tell you what we’re reading at the moment, which sometimes can be several different books! Curse of working at a bookstore, I suppose. Well, I’ve just finished reading Pat Conroy’s The Death of Santini: The Story of a Father and His Son. It is great! If you came in the bookstore this is absolutely what I would tell you to read. (Always listen to people who work in bookstores if you want great book advice!)

The book is a memoir detailing his relationship with his father, a hardened Marine Corps Fighter Pilot and the inspiration for one of his novels The Great Santini. Their relationship is nothing short of strained, but in the final years of his father’s life he manages to find common ground with the man he spent most of his life hating.

It’s a moving and incredibly well-written book. So if you are looking for a book, read this. It’s that simple, listen to the book ladies.

More New Books! (Just What We Love to Hear!)

There has been a lot of press about J.K. Rowling using a  pseudonym (Robert Galbraith) in writing her new novel Cuckoo’s Calling. We will have the book in our store hopefully by the 5th of August. Because of the increase in demand it has gone for a second printing. The book is a mystery that introduces a London private investigator named Cormoran Strike. A second in the series will be out next Summer.

Some other new books we are looking forward to new out this week are The Highway by C.J. Box, and Alex Cross, Run by James Patterson goes to paper.
