We made it! Today is the 24th Day of Advent and we’re celebrating our last day before Christmas with a lovely series of books by our friends at Biblioasis, one of our favourite Canadian publishers. The Christmas Ghost Stories Series includes classic holiday stories by writers such as Daphne Du Maurier, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, and Edith Wharton. They’re small (conveniently stocking-sized), beautiful, and satisfying – just like your favourite Christmas cookies! For today only, if you buy one of these lovely little books, you’ll get a second one for 50% off!
Just a quick reminder that we’ll be observing shorter hours today so that all our staff can head off to their own holiday festivities and a very well-deserved rest. From 9:00am to 2:30pm though, the store will be fully staffed with helpful booksellers ready to give you a hand with any last-minute gifts you might need!
In case we don’t see you in the store to wish you good tidings, we hope you all have a very merry Christmas and a happy holiday season!
