Well, I'm declaring Winter officially over, even though there's a chance of frost tonight. And what a strange winter it was. The death and rebirth of the store, the strange lack of snow, the final demise of Borders and the continued rise of eBooks. The list goes on and on.
But here we are finally in May. I always count Mother's Day as the start of our busy season, which lasts from now until Christmas. for those of you who have been coming in and checking out the new space during these quiet, quiet months, I say a hearty "Thank You!"
If you haven't been in, please do. We have an event every night of next week, starting Monday with Amy Antonucci talking about Honey Bees, and ending next weekend with two great kids events to help promote the Little Harbor Book Fair. Please click on our events tab to see what your missing.
After that is Father's Day, Graduation, and then summer reading. All good reasons for buying books!
We have not been idle during these quiet months. We celebrated our 10th Anniversary! We've started a new Classics Book Group, a subscription recommendation service, and, unbelievably, our own publishing company. We haven't got a moment to spare, but that's the new reality of selling books in the 21st Century. With your help, we'll keep doing it for at least another ten.
We are your friendly neighborhood bookstore, located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. Small but potent, we offer a fine selection of new books with an emphasis on fiction, history, poetry and mystery. We also have a great little kids section, and hold over 100 events a year.
