Loganberry News December 2022

Magical things in store...

It's that time of year, and we're all decked out in our holiday splendor and hoping you and yours are merry and well. Some of my favorite things in Otis' Old Curiosity Shop this year are little ceramic "bookworm" characters, DIY painting pendulums, Cleveland coasters, recycled metalworks sculptures, and snarky catnip pouches. We also have a ton of jigsaw puzzles and Jellycat plush, and every single one makes me smile. I hope it all brings a smile to your face, too.

Berry Good Book Club

Marlen Haushofer: The Wall
This month's bookseller host: Sarah
Thursday, December 15, 7pm
~3rd Thursdays, in-store and virtual~
The Wall by Marlen Haushoffer, translated by Shaun Whiteside is a staff favorite here at Loganberry, and we are excited to talk about this beguiling and unforgettable book with you. The Wall is a dystopian survivalist page-turner for people who don't read dystopian fiction and people who love it.

Bookseller Sarah says, "It’s about a woman who wakes up in the Austrian mountains to find an invisible wall has come down, cutting her off from the world. Written in 1963 and recently republished, it is still relevant and unforgettable."

Join Sarah for the discussion in-store or register for the online meeting here.

Harriett recommends Lost & Found by Kathryn Schulz: "One of my favorite reads of this year, now in paperback, perfect for readers who love words, family stories, and happy endings!"


Wendy recommends Rooted: Life at the Crossroads of Nature, Science, and Spirit by Lyanda Lynn Haupt: "A beautiful book that's a great choice for people who like the wise nature writing in Braiding Sweetgrass and Robert Macfarlane's books and are looking for for a new discovery."


*Leigh recommends A Library by Nikki Giovanni, illustrated by Erin K Robinson*: "In this fabulously illustrated picture book, poet Nikki Giovanni explores the wonders of the Library and the freedom of imagination that comes from reading!"


Elisabeth recommends Spear by Nicola Griffith: "This perfectly sized novella is the queer retelling of the Arthurian legend that I--and maybe you--have been waiting for my whole life, and from a masterful prose stylist, to boot."


Sarah recommends Rejected Books by Graham Johnson and Rob Hibbert "I laughed out loud at these clever titles and funny book jackets! I mean out loud! And we all need a laugh out loud book, right?."


Toni recommends Thistlefoot by GennaRose Nethercott: "This is my very favorite kind of book – big, fantastical, wide-ranging and rollicking! It combines Jewish folklore with innovative storytelling in a delightful tale about the Yaga siblings and their sentient house on chicken legs, which will appeal to readers of Neil Gaiman, Kelly Link, Erin Morgenstern, and Susanna Clark.!"


Devon recommends The Book Thief by Markus Zuzak: "The Book Thief is an incredible story of the Holocaust told from the perspective of Death following one orphaned young reader, Liesel. Liesel is taken in by a German couple who later begin harboring a young Jewish man. We follow Liesel and her adoptive parent’s lives as they secretly fight against Nazi ideologies book by book. This is a book everyone should read, and then read again."


Elijah recommends Sir Gawain and the Green Knight translated by Simon Armitage: "A turn-of-the-century masterpiece, the grandeur of which lies in the cosmic scope of its horror, which makes Lovecraft look quaint: the true monster is the fabric of reality itself."
