Weekly Wrapup

It is possible for any man, by good deeds, to enshrine himself as a Saint in the hearts of the people.


Penguin Christmas Classics. We are swooning over these beautiful editions of old Christmas tales. The collection includes The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum, (pictured above) as well as yuletide classics by Louisa May Alcott, Nikolai Gogol, Anthony Trollope, E.T.A. Hoffman, and of course, Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol.

Bookish Throw Pillows. Odds are you'll want one or more of these under your tree Christmas morning. We love this one too.

Holiday Gift Guide. Did we mention it's here? We are working on beefing up our tween and teen sections; more coming soon.

Book Recommendations. Speaking of beefing up our tween and teen sections, we've heard it from a very reliable source (7th grade reading teacher and her class) that Pure by Julianna Baggott is a must read.

Animal Bookmarks. These page-holding woodland creatures are the perfect stocking stuffers for your favorite little bookworm.

Adorable Metal Bookends. We love these whimsical bookends that are as lovely as they are practical. The sly fox has us especially smitten.
