Summer is just around the corner, and that means it's time to gather your books for the cottage, the beach, the pool, or the backyard. Our curated 2017 Summer Picks list will be revealed on June 23rd. We are very excited about this year's choices! If you can't wait until June 23rd, the annual Humbertown Sidewalk Sale takes place June 15th to 17th. Select titles will be 75% off. Stock up on books for your summer reading pleasure.

And of course we can't forget about Dad. Father's Day is June 18th, and we have a number of gift ideas below in our Notable Non-Fiction section.

We are planning an exciting revamp of our email newsletter over the summer, so there will be no newsletter in July and August. We're always happy to give recommendations in person Monday through Saturday. All you need to do is stop by the store! The newsletter will return in September with a new look. 

A final word from Sarah: If you discover a book recommendation you like in this newsletter, we really hope you'll buy it from us or another independent bookshop. See it here, buy it here, keep us here—we count on your support!
