End of the year 2016



We're quickly approaching the end of the year again. The days are getting shorter and colder and so there's nothing better than enjoying a nice hot drink while reading a good book. We can help you with both! We can also be of assistance with the challenge of the Christmas shopping that's soon comin up again. In the shop we have a nice collection of books, but if ever you can't find what you're looking for let us know and we can order it for you. Make sure you place your order with us before the 15th of December to avoid disappointment and stressful last minute shopping.
What are you reading next?

Book of the month

"Chronicles Vol 1"

by Bob Dylan.

After his Nobel Prize what else can we do but join the celebration of Dylan's words? In this candid and engaging description of his life and career we get to know more about this living legend and as one reviewer describes it, reading the book is "as though Dylan (...) was talking to me personally". There are rumours about a volume 2 being on the way but it's not expected before 2019, so for now let's start with volume 1.

Next Book Club

October 29th at 2 pm "Their Eyes Were Watching God"by Zora Neale Hurston.

In Their Eyes Were Watching God, we first see our main character Janie coming into Eatonville (after being gone two years) alone and in dirty overalls. The porch sitters all talk trash about why she is back in such a condition. She left when she married Tea Cake and went with him to pick beans. Janie is in her forties when she comes back but the story she will tell Phoeby in their two hour conversation covers her entire life. Janie tells Phoeby how she has always longed for love and looked for love in the four most important relationships she has known. After three marriages and a murder trial Hurston shows us just how a light skinned black woman made her way in early twentieth century America.
