If you look at the warm temperatures on the outdoor thermometer today, you might completely forget that we are twelve days away from the Winter Solstice, fourteen days away from the first night of Hanukkah, fifteen days away from Christmas Eve, sixteen days away from Kwanzaa, twenty-two days away from New Year’s Eve. twenty-eight days away from Twelfth Night…
With the mists outside our window, we are thankful for the light that our customers bring to our hearts as they share their love of books with us.
We hope you have been enjoying the 2019 edition of our Holiday Gift-Giving blogs, written by Selina Lovett, our events and marketing coordinator here at our little bookstore that’s bigger on the inside.
