HOT BOOKS

  • THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT by Drew Daywalt; pictures by Oliver Jeffers

    This is a new picture book and it’s already a bookseller favorite. Duncan sits down to color, but finds there are no crayons in his crayon box, only notes from the crayons, saying, "I Quit." It seems Red is tired of only being the color of fire engines and Santa Claus. Yellow is tired of being the sun, and blue wants to be more than the ocean. So Duncan decides to follow the crayons' suggestions. You'll see his delightful handiwork on the last page.
  • INDIAN COOKING UNFOLDED by Raghavan Iyer

The author is the winner of the IACP Award of Excellence for Cooking Teacher of the Year. You’ll be in good hands following his recipes!
  • LIGHT OF THE WORLD by James Lee Burke

    A reader doesn’t even need to know the concept of a James Lee Burke crime novel to know that the book will be enjoyed. It’s a given! The intelligent prose, the intricacies of the plot, the lively dialogue, the underlining thread of good versus evil, the respect for humanity, and the elegance of description are always found in his novels. We’ll tell you this much, however. This book is set in Montana when Louisiana Sheriff’s Detective Dave Robicheaux and his longtime friend and partner, Clete Purcel, are vacationing. Trouble, in the person of the most diabolical villain Dave and Cleve have ever known, finds them there embroiling them in a deadly struggle.
  • THE ASTRONAUT WIVES CLUB: A TRUE STORY by Lily Koppel

    If you experienced life in the 1960s in America, you were likely captivated by the daring accomplishments of our first astronauts who were making world-wide news with their exploration into space. The first group was known as the Mercury Seven, and America was fascinated with them and their families. In fact, their wives became our first reality stars. They knew the dangers their husbands were facing, and yet they supported and encouraged them and, very importantly, each other. This is their unique story.
