March greetings from Mill Street Books

The beautiful spring weather on Saturday has roused me from hibernation! It was a good winter for reading books. My latest favourites are A Woman in a Polar Night and Mrs. Queen Takes the Train  and The Hunt – a good suggestion for Hunger Game lovers.

Meet the folks who are promoting our local  history.  Arlene Stafford Wilson  has 3 books to her credit and  Rob and Sharon Newton produced the dvd about Almonte’s history. Meet them at Mill Street Books on  April13th from 1-3pm

We will miss Robin at Paper Thin who is closing this month and wish her the best. We will carry some of her lines of games, journals and cards.

There are lots of new books coming in! Robert Sawyer fans are looking forward to Red Planet Blues at the end of March. Inferno – by Dan Brown releases on May 14th. Reserve by March 31st for a 25% discount on this blockbuster!

Terry and I have serious concerns about the proposed Enerdu Project and urge you to become informed about the potential negative impact on our town. Please learn more at riverwatchers , the millstone, and on facebook.

Our home is for sale. We will thank whoever brings us a buyer with a big pile of books!!

We look forward to seeing you at the shop and catching up with your news. Play I Spy with the photo poster on our door which Rob Riendeau from the Humm designed to help us say thanks for supporting our store. We appreciate you shopping local!


Mary and Terry
