If you would come in and buy some books...

...then we would stop goofing off, making snowflakes. 'Cause we've got about as many as our window can handle.


New batch of old sci-fi

...with some seriously awesome covers.

 
 Depends on where it's growing, I guess.

It's a good thing he has a sword, because he seems to be lacking in other areas....

Is that a green Cheshire cat + space elves?

Yes.

 And stuff.

Meet the Wives

It's safe to say that there are certain trends in book titles. None, we feel, is more overdone than what we call the "Wife Books."

First, there are the Something Wives....







The Numbered Wives....







The Somebody's Wife....














And not to forget....


Aaaand....

Houston, we have art!


The photos are Emma's and the drawings are by local artist Raissa Markewycz.

Look, ma, organization!

Are those...labels I see? Why yes, they are!

We've just categorized our cookbooks, so you can find exactly what you're looking for.

The art books, on the other hand...still as disorganized as ever.

Do not adjust your screen

...she really is blue.

If it said "learn with native speakers" I would be concerned, because she's clearly from the Pleiades, not the Netherlands.

Yes, that's a cake.

Go check out the post on Cake Wrecks, though these cakes are anything but wrecks, I assure you!

The more you look at it...

...the less sense it makes. Isn't that his right hand? ...So where's the rest of his body?

The blurb on this romance is just more honest than most

But wait, there's more

First, there is the title.


As if that's not enough to frighten you, there's the blurb.


And then...the excerpt in the front.


At first, I thought it was a joke. Then I thought it was serious. Then I thought it was a joke. I still can't make up my mind.

Mmm...veil so tasty.

I'm sure it made sense to somebody

Okay, so that's a flamethrower.

And that's a.....bag made out of a Santa costume.

And that's a...........riding crop with a bone handle?

And those things would be............whistles? ..................metal nunchucks?

I hope this cover isn't representative of the plot, 'cause I didn't think Dick Francis was into surrealism.
