Hardcover Fiction Sales -- Ideas to Ponder

Hmmmm. Let's see. What hardcover novels should you pick up at 25% off this weekend during our splendtacular (splendiferous and spectacular) sidewalk sale this weekend? Today we just got in the new mystery by James Lee Burke. Or perhaps you're more in the mood for The Winter Vault, by Anne Michaels (author of Fugitive Pieces). Or perhaps you want a debut novel, say Last Night in Montreal, by Emily St. John Mandel, or Black Water Rising, by Attica Locke. Maybe you've been dreaming of Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie (Nancy Drew meets Harriet the Spy for grownups), by Alan Bradley (with two more installments of Flavia books under contract -- yippee!). Or have you been eager to read the new book by Shadow of the Wind author, Carlos Ruiz Zafon, The Angel's Game, also set inBarcelona? The latest from Sarah Waters (Tipping the Velvet, etc), The Little Stranger? Or perhaps you have your heart set on two books getting a lot of great buzz lately: The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane (a supernatural puzzler involving the Salem witch trials) by Katherine Howe, or The Selected Works of T.S. Spivet (the story of a 12-year-old genius cartographer) by Reif Larsen. Maybe you're in the mood to laugh yourself silly with Christopher Moore's Fool, a spoof on King Lear as only Moore can tell it. Or maybe you've been drooling over the book Roberta and Jennie have been raving about: Cutting for Stone, by Abraham Verghese, the epic novel set primarily in Ethopia and the US. We've also got new hardcover fiction from Phillip Margolin, Chuck Palahniuk, John Grisham, Janet Evanovich, Laurie King, Glen David Gould, Alice Hoffman, Elizabeth Berg, Charlaine Harris, David Baldacci, Stephen King, and Dean Koontz, just to name a few. Or maybe you've decided to use our big sale to make a dent in your holiday shopping: Signed copies of Border Songs, the new novel by Jim Lynch (The Highest Tide) for all of your friends and family. Oh, choices, choices. And these are just a few of the many you can pick up for -- did I mention it already? -- 25% off this weekend only!!! And don't forget about all the great specials we'll have out on our sidewalk: most will be $4 each, or 3 for $10. Come early for the best selection!! Friday & Saturday we're open from 10 am to 7 pm, and Sunday we'll be here from noon to 5 pm.
