entranceThe Larchmere Holiday Stroll was a blast!  Thanks to everyone who came out for the festivities and fanfare.  We've got some books left, though, and some creative gift baskets you can still claim.  :-)

Hark!  We have special deals for special requests:  for new books ordered through us, we'll take 5% off your $50 purchase, 10% off $100 purchase, 15% off $150, and 20% off $200 (max).  We can get just about anything in print in 3 days' time, or out-of-print within a week.  So regardless of where you learn of the book, you can ask us to get it for you and save! 

Also -- freebie wrapped books for any purchase over $20, and free LMA Chico bags (they stuff into a little sack for easy transport when not in use; great stocking stuffers) for any purchase over $100.  Christmas cards are still on sale:  4th box is 50% off, and 13th singleton card is free.  And, in case all that wasn't enough, any gift certificate purchase entitles to you to any calendar purchase at a whopping 50% off!  Whew.  Ok, now to the books and events.

P423: Peanuts
I am hoping you can help me.  My 27 year old daughter mentioned an old book she remembered from her childhood, at least 20 years ago.   All she could remember was that peanuts had something to do with the characters.  Peanuts on all of the pages.  She thought it could have been a party situation or something to do with animals.  One would think that her mother could remember a story like this, but alas, I can't.

Thursday Book Clubs
JoyceN.O.B.S. Forums
Bloomsday & Austeniana Clubs
~ third and fourth Thursdays ~
N.O.B.S. Forums usually meets on the third Thursday, and our two ongoing book clubs usually meet on the fourth Thursday of the month.  With Thanksgiving and Christmas both squarely falling on fourth Thursdays, the readers and collectors will take a short hiatus.  We'll reconvene after the holidays, with N.O.B.S. Forums meeting on January 15 with a Show and Tell.  The book clubs will meet on the fourth Thursday, January 22, when we'll see where the Joyce readers are with Ulysses (somewhere near Chapter 12), and the Austen group will discuss the entire Fitzwilliam Darcy trilogy by Pamela Aidan.
