Get ready to put on those reading glasses because we’ve got some great new releases coming out next week. Stop by the store and pick one up (or two, or three!). And we have all the new Christmas novels starting to be released!
There’s Wilbur Smith’s Desert God, John Grisham’s Gray Mountain, and Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic to the Stars. Sounds like some good fall reading is on the way!
Jan Karon has released a new novel in her Father Tim series called, “Somewhere Safe With Somebody Good”. Lee Child also has a new book out and his favorite character, Jack Reacher, makes an appearance in it.
Things are staring to quiet down here at the beach. It’s a great time for bird watching and surf fishing (we’ve got some guides for it). These are indeed the lazy days of the end of summer. Come on down to the beach, the living is easy!
Now that vacation season is winding down we have a terrific book for you to read. It’s called “I Am Pilgrim” written by Terry Hayes. 600 pages worth of action packed reading! Stop by and pick up a copy!

Last night the CBS Evening News aired a feature on a local landmark, the Kindred Spirit Mailbox. They interviewed Frank Nesmith, who originally put up the mailbox over 30 years ago with his then-girlfriend, and author Jacqueline DeGroot. DeGroot’s books often feature the famed mailbox as well as other local landmarks. We sell all of Jacqueline’s books at the bookstore.
Since the “Kindred Spirit” and Frank are unable to take the 1.5 mile trek to the mailbox often, DeGroot volunteers to replace the notebooks inside, and ensure the safe keeping of the secrets and messages left with the mailbox. The story of the mailbox is a unique one, and one that brings a lot of pride to Sunset Beach. People have traveled far and wide to experience the few moments of tranquillity that await at the mailbox.
