Parents are letting us know how much their kids are enjoying this American History series. This one tells the story of how the first American patriots wanted to break away from Great Britain’s rule and how they went about it. The main character is a substitute history teacher named Rush Revere, who, along with his talking horse, can travel back in time to actually be with the patriots in that turbulent time. Readers will meet Benjamin Franklin, Paul Revere, and Samuel Adams as they learn about this dangerous and exciting time in our history. Book One in the series is Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims. These books for young readers (and adults) make history interesting and accessible in an entertaining and engaging manner.
  • THE GOLDFINCH by Donna Tartt

    You have probably heard about this book, but we want to add our excitement for it. If you like to be thoroughly absorbed in a story, this book is for you. It’s hefty, 771 pages, and that’s an asset, because when you love a book, you want to “live with it” for awhile. The story begins in present-day America when you become acquainted with thirteen-year-old Theo Decker. His mother has died in an accident and his father is out of the picture. He goes to live with a wealthy friend in New York, and there begins an odyssey into the world of art collecting that ultimately introduces him to the criminal underworld. The painting of a goldfinch is paramount to the story.

    For those kids who have loved the Kingdom Keepers series, be sure to let them know that Book VII in the series is out. It brings to conclusion the exciting tale of the conflict between those who would do The Magic Kingdom harm and those who are trying to save it. The author solicited input from his fans on how to bring the series to an end, and they replied with enormous support. Over 50,000 fans contacted his website with suggestions on how to end the series. The winning suggestions were incorporated into the story and the names of these Insiders are noted in the book. As Ridley says, “Together, we crowd-sourced the writing of a novel.”

Dear Booklovers,

The warm weather is finally here and I think we are all ready for it. We’re also ready to change things up a bit here at Books & Co. The next time you come in, you’ll notice we have moved some of the sections. We did this because you told us by your shopping habits which sections you would like to see enlarged and which ones could be reduced a bit.

The biggest change comes in our Kids Section. It’s still on the second floor, but you’ll notice the space devoted to that section is much larger and that’s because it gets so much attention from our customers.

You’ll now have even more selections when you are shopping for children’s books, toys, games, stuffed animals, activity books and educational toys. Teachers Resource materials are also in that section, as are books related to family matters. We’ve also included a Kids Bargain Book section in the new upstairs layout

Teens now have an enlarged book section upstairs. Business, Computer Books, Real Estate, Investment, Study Guides & Test Preparation, Nature, Science, Religion, Bibles, Philosophy, Christian Fiction, World Religions, Language, Reference, Home & Garden, Travel, Personal Growth, Games, Entertainment, Humor, New Age, Pets, Science, Crafts, Pop Culture, Manga, Graphic Novels, Health, Medical Reference, Diet & Nutrition, and Cooking are still upstairs, but some of those sections have moved a bit since you last saw them.

Fiction, Biography, History, Sci Fi, Romance, Poetry, School Reads, Politics, Social Science, Sports, Exercise, Journals, Etiquette & Wedding, Beauty & Fashion, Art, Mythology, Drama, African American Fiction & Nonfiction, Bestsellers, Westerns, Large Print Books, Essays, Movies, Vinyl Records, Antiques, Coin Collecting, True Crime, Anthologies, Bestsellers, Magazines, Audio Books, CDs , Autographed Books, Electronics, Greeting Cards, Gift Items and the Bargain Book Section are on the first floor, as is Yogurt Mountain.
