After the great weather for Market Square Day, it seems everyone got in the summer mood. Flowers are blooming, the sun is shining, and everyone has switched over to ice coffee. Opening the new store in February was tough-- it's traditionally the slowest time of the year-- but it gave us a chance to get our feet under us.
Now we've got so many things going on it's making my head swim:
The Piscataqua Press is up and running!
Great new books are arriving from the publishers every day, and great used books are being traded in by our faithful readers.
The Demon Bookseller of Fleet Street is haunting the store in the evenings, and her Paperback to the Future program is finding us new fans all across the country.
The economy is still a disaster, but it seems that people are embracing the local more than ever, and that is good for us, because after all we are your friendly neighborhood bookstore.
I want to especially wish a happy summer to all the teachers! We know a lot of you got gift cards from your students, so we'll see you soon.
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.
