Hey! We challenge you to elevate your reading this summer. We'll help you find engrossing, entertaining beach reads that are still literate, educational, and maybe even challenging. We're calling it Summer Smarter Than Others, and we want you to join us. Personally, I'm planning to read a bunch of Graham Greene that I've been meaning to get to, and at least one book by Henry James (it's true, I've never read him).
But we are also taking this opportunity to turn you on to great contemporary authors through recommendations and author events. We will be kicking off the campaign with a week's worth of A list authors beginning June 22nd (the first week of Summer) with Arthur Phillips and Kate Christensen. I'm reading Phillips's new book, The Song Is You, right now and it is really great. Especially if you're a music fan. All of the events running that week, and more, can be found on our events page.
Six days, seven authors. Pre-pay for any two signed books by any of the authors reading the week of June 22nd and get a third signed book free. Come to as many events as you can, and get in the summer reading spirit.
Now. Go. Read.
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.
