Dear Old Golden Rule Days . . .

The academic year is getting underway, but don't tell Mother Nature. We may still get a month of summer out of her before she's through. Whatever she may decide, this is definitely the time to pick up one of our ever-popular August to August organizers in the bright color of your choice.

September 22nd features a great off-site author event with Naseem Rakha, author of The Crying Tree. Details are here. We've also got memoirist Suzanne Morrison, author of Yoga Bitch, coming to the store on the 30th.

And did you notice the new tab on the menu above? We're always interested in conversation with our friends and neighbors, so we've recently launched a blog that gives us one more way to talk to you. Even more importantly, it gives you one more way to talk to us, and to each other. The door is always open--let us know what you think.

Dog Days

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 . . . .

Sumer is icumen in, Lhude sing cuccu!

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?
