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

"Jolly Christmas Postman"

by Janet & Allan Ahlberg.

It's Christmas Eve and the Jolly Postman is delivering greetings to various fairy-tale characters - there's a card for Baby Bear, a game appropriately called 'Beware' for Red Riding Hood from Mr Wolf, a get-well jigsaw for hospitalised Humpty Dumpty and three more surprise envelopes containing letters, cards, etc. Everyone's favourite postman is now 20 years old and celebrates with a brand new cover look.

Slade House by David Mitchell

 

Turn down Slade Alley - narrow, dank and easy to miss, even when you're looking for it. Find the small black iron door set into the right-hand wall. No handle, no keyhole, but at your touch it swings open. Enter the sunlit garden of an old house that doesn't quite make sense; too grand for the shabby neighbourhood, too large for the space it occupies.

A stranger greets you and invites you inside. At first, you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find that you can't.

This unnerving, taut and intricately woven tale by one of our most original and bewitching writers begins in 1979 and comes to its turbulent conclusion around Hallowe'en, 2015. Because every nine years, on the last Saturday of October, a 'guest' is summoned to Slade House. But why has that person been chosen, by whom and for what purpose? The answers lie waiting in the long attic, at the top of the stairs
