WE'RE READING...

The Martian By Andy Weir
$24.00


Science + fiction for those who usually don't like SciFi = 'The Martian' by Andy Weir. Technical space writing, astro geekdom, MacGyver on Mars. So far, six of us on the staff have read it and we're all floating high (though we came back to Earth to spread the word). We typically offer our customers a free bookmark with each book, but you won't need one for this read.



Doll Bones By Holly Black, Eliza Wheeler
$16.99


A doll that may be haunted leads three friends on a thrilling adventure in this delightfully creepy novel from the New York Times bestselling cocreator of the Spiderwick Chronicles.

Zach, Poppy, and Alice have been friends forever. And for almost as long, they’ve been playing one continuous, ever-changing game of pirates and thieves, mermaids and warriors. Ruling over all is the Great Queen, a bone-china doll cursing those who displease her.
