“The horizon leans forward,
Offering you space to place new steps of change.”
― Maya Angelou
Happy New Year! 2022 is upon us and the new year gives us a wonderful opportunity to pause, reflect and reset. We have lots of exciting plans coming up this year so as always keep your eyes peeled on our socials and sign up for our newsletter to make sure you don’t miss a thing!
If you didn’t get enough books for Christmas (because let’s be honest, you can never have enough) don’t forget that our 40% off sale is running through January. You can get your mitts on recent hardbacks at paperback prices, or paperbacks at, well, really cheap prices.
Here’s a little taster of what’s on offer…
We are extremely excited to be opening our events for the year with An Evening with Anna Fleming on Friday January 21st. For more information and tickets please click here.
You might have set some book-based resolutions, so I thought I’d give you some suggestions to help you on your way…
Read if: your resolution is to read more non-fiction
Brand new, this short feminist polemic that argues that the afterlife of the witch hunts continues today. Prescient and fascinating, this is a great entry into non-fiction/feminist writing.
P.s Echo is our non-fiction fiend in the shop, so if you ever want a recommendation in that area, give her a shout!
Read if: you want to reduce your screen time
If you want to spend less time on your phone and more time reading, there’s no better choice than The Lincoln Highway. Chunky, absorbing and transporting, this was our book of the year 2021 for a reason.
Read if: you want to join a book club
You’re in luck, we actually have two book clubs. There’s the book club run by Emma, that meets on the first Monday of every month (January’s book is The Appeal). Then we also have the Beer and a Book club which is run by Drew and meets on the third Monday of every month. You can keep up to date with the book clubs and other events here.
Read if: this is the year you’re going to write your book
Cathy Rentzenbrink’s wonderful new book shows you how to tackle the challenge of memoir writing and how to put your life down on paper.
Read if: you want to get into poetry (but don’t know where to start)
With timely and important messages about the effects of tampering with nature, Ghosh’s evocative retelling of a seminal Bengali poem is suffused with lyricism and wisdom and is coupled with stunning illustrations from internationally renowned artist, Salman Toor.
We hope that you have a wonderful January and until next time, keep reading.
