The sultry days of summer are supposed to be a time of torpor and indolence, but we're not sitting still here at Island Books. All sorts of projects are afoot, and you'll be hearing about them soon. Right after we finish this pitcher of mai tais . . . .
We've got a great author event coming up this week: Robert Rosell, author of the forthcoming novel Virtually Yours, Jonathan Newman, will be here on Wednesday, August 3rd. This is something of a sneak preview, as Island Books will be the very first place his book will be available. Although we'll shortly be adding the title to our web catalog, for the moment the only way to order it if you can't visit the store is to give us a call or drop us an email. Remember, US shipping is free when you order from us directly.
And of course, we have lots of brand-new hardcovers to read this summer, whether you're out on a lounge chair or stuck indoors. What is it with this weather?
