*A Collection of Antiquarian Curios & Relics*

"I started Early -- Took my Dog--
And visited the Sea--
The Mermaids in the Basement
Came out to look at me--"
--Emily Dickinson, 520
1) THE CHILLER'S TALE . . . You know those kids that have been pestering you for four years about Jonathan Rand's next Michigan Chiller? Well, you'll finally get them off of your back for a couple of weeks because we have received Michigan Chillers #15: Calumet Copper Creatures (9781893699663) 5.99. Also, as an added bonus, we have Jonathan Rand's new American Chiller #32: Idaho Ice Beast (9781893699311) 5.99 in stock, too. These titles make great stocking stuffers and these are probably two of the few series that teen boys will actually read. Hopefully, we won't have to wait another four years for the next Michigan Chiller . . .

2) PACK ATTACK . . . We have Dr. James Hurley's Green Bay: A City & Its Team (9780615444642) 39.95 in stock. This is a gorgeous coffee table book for the true Packers' fan. The good doctor did not cut any corners in the production of this title and it is a steal at this price. We are also expecting a reprint of future Hall of Fame receiver Donald Driver's kids title Quickie Goes to the Big Game (9780615548715) 19.95 in today. Finally, Rob Reischel's Aaron Rodgers: Leader of the Pack (9781600786457) 22.95 should be here in a few days. It was shipped from the publisher on the December 13. It made me think of this:

"Is she really going out with him?
Well, there she is. Let's ask her.
Jessica, is that Aaron's ring you're wearing?
Gee, it must be great cheering him on.
Is he picking you up after the game?
Uh-uh . . .
That's when I fell for the Leader of the Pack."
3) A SMORGASBORD OF FUN . . . We have a plethora of hot titles back in. Walter Isaacson's Steve Jobs (9781451648539) 35.00 is in stock. By the way, Apple's founding document sold today for $1.6 million. The surprise bestseller Thinking, Fast and Slow (9780374275631) 30.00 by Daniel Kahneman is here. Speaking of legendary quarterbacks in the making, we have a few copies of Tim Tebow's Through My Eyes (9780062007285) 26.99 left in the stash. Lastly, we are still expecting the LEGO Ideas Book (9780756686062) 24.99 to be back in stock on December 16. Backorders are piling up . . .

Odds & Sods

John was kind enough to get us some signed copies of Amy Ackley's Sign Language (9780670013180) 16.99. Obviously, first come, first served. Also, we still have signed bookplates for Jan Brett's Home for Christmas (9780399256530) 17.99. For the perfect gift for the young reader, we have signed copies of Carol Crane's Christmas Tree Ship (9781585362851) 15.95 available . . .

For Cleveland sports fans, we are expecting more Joe Tait: It's Been a Real Ball (9781598510706) 15.95 on either this Friday or Monday . . .
