We have a dozen just-published books which are predicted to be the next Bestsellers!

The Book of Speculation, a novel by Erika Swyler

This is my #1 favorite book this season.  A wonderful read. The carnival backstory has a touch of magic. The intriguing family dynamics held my interest.

The Little Paris Bookshop, a novel by Nina George

The tale of a bookshop that is actually on a canal boat, traveling down the River Seine. Jean Perdu, the owner, takes on a celebrity author who is also a lovelorn chef. This book is an ode to the curative powers of literature.

Language Arts, a novel by Stephanie Kallos

The art of communication is the theme of this story about a father and son experience with autism.

The Truth and Other Lies, a novel by Sascha Arango

When Henry's mistress tells him she is pregnant,  this sets off a chain of events causing him to commit the biggest mistake of his life - twisty, cynical and brilliant.

Love May Fail, a novel by Matthew Quick

A beach read with quirky characters, love, friendship, family and depression - many literary and musical references.

Death and Mr. Pickwich, a novel by Stephen Jarvis

A rollicking novel about Charles Dickens and his illustrator, Robert Seymour, on back-alley trips to London taverns, sports clubs and the courtroom where the Prime Minister is standing trial. Delightful!

My Grandmother Asked Me to tell You She's Sorry, a novel by Fredrik Backman

When 7-year-old Elsa's grandmother passes away, she discovers the quirky inhabitants of her life and the unusual things that bring joy and magic to her life. Humor, sadness and fairy tales.

Invasion of the Tearling, a novel by Erika Johansen

Book two in The Queen of the Tearling series.  In this dazzling sequel, Erika Johansen brings back favorite characters, including the Mace and the Red Queen, and introduces unforgettable new players, adding exciting layers to her multidimensional tale of magic, mystery, and a fierce young heroine. Warner Brothers movie to come (starring Emma Watson as the rather plain Kelsea).



The Pirate Hunters: Treasure, Obsession, and the Search for a Legendary Pirate Ship, by Robert Kurson

Follow a team of treasure hunters as they race rivals and international legislation in their quest for a sunken pirate ship. Kurson reveals that they have much in common with the pirates they are hunting.

Several people have asked, "What does INDIE BOUND mean?"  This refers to independent retail stores. 

When you buy locally more of your money stays in the community.  We are passionate about what we do.

You can take advantage of the unique, specialized items offered for sale, including art, cards and books 

by local people. The "INDIENEXT" display just inside our front door is for those titles read by bookstore staff and 

predicted to be the next Bestsellers - and most often they are!

If you would like to receive our monthly bookstore newsletter, and announcements of special events like Author Signings,

“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.” ― George R.R. Martin
