Thanks to everyone who joined us for our 10th Anniversary party, Local Author Book Fair, Larchmere Holiday Stroll and Dunham Tavern Antiques Show!  It's been a busy month, and now we're just winding down and helping folks find the perfect holiday gifts.  Did I say just?  Silly me....

Stumped by what to give Aunt Sally or nephew Ryan?  Try our Gift Advice Form for a risk-free recommendation.

Extended December hours include Thursday evenings until 8pm and Sundays 12-4pm.  (Otherwise, it's 10am-6pm as usual, or by chance or appointment.)

Gift giving is an art.  Try something different...  like...Loganberry's holiday window

Local Authors:  Sarah Willis has a new novel called The Sound of Us, and Miram Levin's Defining Women's Scientific Enterprise was nominated for a Pulitzer!  Or try some bagpiping mysteries by Donald Willis, or some philosophy learned from behind prison walls in Jeff Traylor's The Epictetus Club.  We just sponsored a Local Author Book Fair, so we have many interesting signed books in stock.
Leatherbound tomes:  We have gorgeous sets of Sir Walter Scott, Longfellow, Tennyson, Swift, Motley and others.
Travel books:  Drool over turn-of-century maps in Baedaker's Guides, or great photography of Ireland or Italy.
Vintage children's classics:  Try some classics from Parents Magazine Press like Miss Twiggley's Tree or an out-of-print Richard Scarry title.  Or the newly published saga of H.A. and Margret Rey's escape from Nazi-occupied Paris on bicycle, The Journey that Saved Curious George.
Bookbag:  Everyone needs the sexy new Loganberry 10th Anniversary bookbag.  In purple, of course.

Loganberry Book Club
KennethStarted 10 years ago at the request of a friend with out-of-state grandchildren, this book-of-the-month club continues as a favorite holiday gift idea.  With some basic pointers and guidelines from you, Loganberry Books can create a customized book club membership catered to the reading level, interests, and quirks of your loved ones (or, um, yourself).  Three tiers of membership provide the price range and book quality you seek ($10, $20, or $30 per month).  A new book arrives every month, wrapped in pretty purple paper. 

From out-of-print classic picture books to paperback mysteries, and new board books to illustrated gardening books, let Loganberry surprise you or your nearest and dearest with a new reading adventure each month.  It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Y33:  Young Witch, broom stick, something silver
I read this book for the first time in 4th grade- 1987- and my Dad remembers reading it at about the same age (he was born in 1952). It was about a young witch girl who wanted to fly (maybe couldn't fly?), there was something silver that paid a large part in the story- like a silver bird or a salt shaker or something like that. It was a chapter book, and I know I loved it, but I can't remember much beyond it.

Annex Gallery
