It’s probably our most popular sale of the year:  the January Card Sale!  That’s right, all holiday cards and 2012 calendars are now 50% off, and all everyday cards are 20% off.  We have close to 2000 cards in stock, so now’s your chance to come stock up for the year!  J


Also, we’re super excited about our live webcast of the ALA Youth Awards, aka the Caldecott Party.  We’ve been talking about this for years, and we finally got our act together to do it, so please come join us.  See below for details.

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

C759: Coal camp girl on a train ride

Published in the 1910s or 1920s, probably (possibly the early thirties – but going on the story, I'd say it was the 1920s). Little girl growing up in a coal company town, probably in Pennsylvania, her father is a miner. She gets sick, and is sent to stay with a relative or seek better treatment. She ends up taking a long train ride by herself, and at first there's lots of description about the bleak company towns.

Classics Club
David Foster Wallace’s Infinite Jest
Thursday, January 26, 7 pm

~ fourth Thursdays ~
The Classics Club, led by Christine Borne, meets monthly to discuss a modern or vintage classic.  About this month's selection: “Somewhere in the not-so-distant future, the screwed-up residents of Ennet House, a Boston halfway house for recovering addicts, and students at the Enfield Tennis Academy search for the master copy of a movie so dangerously entertaining that its viewers die in a state of catatonic bliss. Explores essential questions about what entertainment is, why we need it, and what it says about who we are. -- James Wood, Guardian

This is the third of four discussions on Infinite Jest. We will be reading through page 751. The fourth and final discussion will be on Thursday, February 23 at 7pm.
