February Greetings!

Anyone else thrilled that January is in that back window? We are and are so excited for so all these new releases coming out.  And trust us when we say, there are some great new releases coming out. There is so much to look forward to and we are carefully curating our lists to help you find a read that suits your mood. (See our Staff Picks and new releases below.) Our reading focus may be a bit off now and then with everything going, but that means every great read we find brings an even bigger sigh of relief. And, fingers crossed for a mild winter so that we can also enjoy the fresh air while listening to audio books brought to you by As always, we can ship to you or your favorite reader(s).

We so appreciate all the orders and support, and we are so grateful to you, our customers. Stay safe and healthy. Thank you!
