Greetings!

 

Many of you may have received Nicholas Sparks' email listing this year's tour dates and noticed that Greenville, SC, is not on the list for what I think may be the first year ever. His publicist confirmed that this is not an oversight. If you are as disappointed as we are, you can let Nicholas Sparks know your feelings via his Facebook page so that if they have room to add on an event, they will know who wants it the most.
 
If you'd still like to order an unsigned copy of his new book from us, we are offering you a 20% discount off of The Longest Ride and anything else you order at the same time. Use coupon code SPARKS at checkout, or mention this offer if you're buying in person.
 
Summer Reading

 

Give Me Summer! Give Me Books! We are thrilled to be participating in the launch of an exciting national summer reading program sponsored by independent bookstores for the summer of 2013: Give Me Summer! Give Me Books! Registration is now open for kids going into grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8. Kids just need to come to our store, grab their summer reading tracking forms (they double as bookmarks!), and pick up a few books to kick off the program!

 

Booksellers from around the country have selected six fantastic book choices for each grade level. To complete our reading challenge, kids need to read six books total, including at least three books from our suggested list. Kids who return their form to us by August 1st will be rewarded this year with a Blueberry Frog fro-yo party at the store on Saturday, August 10th, from 1-3pm, as well as free books. Kids who read all six of the recommended selections for their grade level will also receive a $5 Fiction Addiction gift certificate.

(Five winners possible.) We have punch cards for tracking your purchases; purchasing a paperback book will receive on punch, and a purchase of Dessen's new hardcover release, The Moon and More, will receive two punches. Each card with three punches qualifies for one raffle entry.

 

And if you have summer reading for school, please bring by your list of books so we can be sure to have them in stock.

 

Where's Waldo Scavenger Hunt

 

Where's Waldo? Following the success of last year's 25th birthday celebration of Where's Waldo, Candlewick Press, Waldo's publisher, has decided it's time for another summer celebration. And just where is Waldo after all these years? Well, this July he'll be hiding right here in Greenville, SC!

 

For the second year in a row, Fiction Addiction will be hosting an exciting month-long scavenger hunt to find Waldo at 15 local, independent businesses during the month of July.

 

Each business will have a six-inch Waldo standee displayed somewhere in their store starting July 1st -- your job is to find them! At your first stop, make sure to pick up your passport which has a list of all 15 participating stores. Whenever you spot a Waldo standee, tell a store employee who will stamp or sign your "Find Waldo Local in Greenville!" passport. Throughout the month, there will prizes awarded to the players, and on July 31st, there will be a big Waldo shindig at Fiction Addiction from 1-2pm. You can see a list of participating businesses and get more information here.

 Jim McFarlane
Jim McFarlane, author of Penelope, recommends:
 
The Son The Son by Philipp Meyer (Ecco, hardcover, $27.99)
The Son by Philipp Meyer is an epic Texas multi-generation western filled with conflict: whites versus Mexicans versus Indians, cows versus oil, fathers versus sons versus daughters, rich versus poor, money versus money. Recommended for lovers of Lonesome Dove 
 
 
Murder as a Fine Art Murder as a Fine Art by David Morrell (Mulholland Books, hardcover, $25.99)
In the historical thriller Murder as a Fine Art, author David Morrell (creator of Rambo in First Blood) creates a vivid and compelling picture of 19th century London. The plot, based upon a series of infamous murders, ranges from street beggars to the highest levels of government and everywhere in-between. Morrell is a talented and highly acclaimed thriller author and I highly recommend this book.      
  
Jim's Picks now in paperback:
 
Wilderness Wilderness by Lance Weller (Bloomsbury, $16.00)
According to author Jonathan Evison, "Wilderness is a masterful novel of incident and redemption, hugely entertaining, full of pathos and humanity -- frankly, it's hard to believe that it's a debut. Fans of Charles Frazier and Cormac McCarthy alike will thrill at Weller's luminous prose and clear-eyed moral vision." Personally, I can't remember the last time I read an entire novel in a single day, but I did this one.

June Staff Picks
 
Jill Hendrix, store owner, recommends:

Bootstrapper Bootstrapper by Mardi Jo Link (Alfred A. Knopf, hardcover, $24.95)

Bootstrapper is the most engaging memoir I've read since The Middle Place. Mardi Jo's strength and determination to hold onto her land and three sons, despite the financial hardships of a divorce she initiated, are inspiring. Her memoir is an ode to the American values of hard work, thrift, and ingenuity, and should appeal to readers the country over.  


Looking for Me Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman (Pamela Dorman Books, hardcover, $27.95)
Teddi Overman knows from the age of 10 that she wants to work with furniture, but her journey from a farm near Kentucky's Red River Gorge to proprietor of a tiny Charleston antique shop is quite a trip. This is such a wonderful book about family relationships and how complete and total strangers can change the course of your life. Looking for Me, told with Beth Hoffman's trademark blend of compassion and optimism, will touch any reader who has ever followed a dream, disappointed a parent, or said a final goodbye to their childhood home.
-Also recommended by Jackie, store volunteer

 

Kelsey Green, Reading Queen Kelsey Green, Reading Queen by Claudia Mills (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, hardcover, $15.99)
Kelsey Green loves to read, so when her principal announces that the entire school will participate in a reading contest, she's sure she will read more than anyone else in her 3rd grade class. But will her class as a whole read enough to win the contest? Share your own love of reading with your child and introduce them to Kelsey Green, Reading Queen. Needless to say, Claudia has painted a pretty accurate portrait of my own childhood. :)

 

The Guest House The Guest House by Erika Marks (New American Library, paperback, $15.00)
Years ago, Cape Cod native Lexi Wright followed in her mother's footsteps and fell in love with a "wash-ashore", a summer boy from a rich North Carolina family. Neither of their romances led to a happily-ever-after, but when Lexi returns to Harrisport after years away, second chances abound for everyone. A fun, summer read for fans of Karen White and Wendy Wax.

 

The Sea of Tranquility The Sea of Tranquility by Katja Millay (Atria Books, paperback, $15.00)
This beautiful, heart-wrenching love story deserves the wider audience that print will bring to this ebook original. I could easily see The Sea of Tranquility becoming this generation's Say Anything.
 
 
 

 

The Girl from Felony Bay The Girl from Felony Bay by J.E. Thompson (Walden Pond Press, hardcover, $16.99)
Abbey Force is a modern-day South Carolina Nancy Drew who must save her lawyer father from being framed for a crime he didn't commit. But Nancy Drew never had to watch out for cottonmouths, alligators, and other coastal SC dangers!

Melissa Oates, store employee, recommends: 
 
Siege and Storm Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo (Henry Holt & Co., hardcover, $17.99)
Alina has managed to escape the Darkling and is living in hiding with Mal. But her scant happiness doesn't last long until the Darkling finds her again, intent as ever to claim Alina and her power for his own. But with the help of a notorious pirate (er... privateer), she manages to escape again. But this time, she's not hiding. This time, she wants to use her power. The question is, will Alina be able to control her power, or will the power control her? I'm as much in love with this trilogy now as I was after reading the first book, and I can't wait for the conclusion!
  
The Rithmatist The Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson (Tor Books, hardcover, $17.99)
Joel desperately wants to be a Rithmatist -- part of a select order that can bring chalk drawings to life to battle wild chalkings and keep the human race safe. But since he's not, Joel spends his time learning everything he can about Rithmatics and befriends an outcast professor and another student, who end up helping him in his own battle. This well-plotted story is perfect for all sorts of readers -- the math geek, the fantasy lover, and the sucker for happy endings. It grabbed me from the very beginning and ended with a goofy grin on my face, despite my strong desire for a sequel.
 
Vader's Little Princess Vader's Little Princess by Jeffrey Brown (Chronicle Books, hardcover, $14.95)
Most people are familiar with Star Wars; what may be less known is what an awesome father Darth Vader was to young Luke and Leia...at least according to cartoonist Jeffrey Brown's imaginings. We've already seen how Vader handled a 4-year-old Luke in Darth Vader and Son; now we get to look in on his dealings with Leia, from young girl to rebellious teenager. Any father who loves Star Wars will get a kick out of Brown's take on fatherhood.
 
 
Kathleen Perry, store employee, recommends:
 
WoolWool by Hugh Howey (Simon & Schuster, paperback, $15.00)
Survivors of an apocalypse must live in an enormous underground silo because the environment is so deadly. They adhere to very strictly enforced laws which they are told are necessary to maintain their fragile peace and ensure their continued existence. But their delicate societal balance is upset when people begin to ask questions. Howey masterfully creates a suspenseful story about a world and characters so real, and a scenario so frighteningly credible, that it will stay with you for days afterward. This is a book for avid science fiction fans, as well as the occasional reader.

 

Kathleen's Picks now in paperback:

Nancy Rechtman, store employee, recommends:
 
Major Pettigrew's Last Stand Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson (Random House, paperback, $15.00)
A deceptively gentle story at first, about the unexpected, growing friendship -- and eventual romance -- between traditional and honorable widower Major Ernest Pettigrew (retired) and local widowed Pakistani shopkeeper Jasmina Ali, taking place in a small English town, where just below the surface, prejudice, ignorance, and stupidity are pushing their way out. There is a great deal of wry humor throughout the book that keeps the more serious issues from overwhelming the story. Simonson's characters are very human and endearing, and she has a masterful command of descriptive language.

 

June Volunteer Picks
  
Nancy M.'s Picks

The Execution of Noa P. Singleton The Execution of Noa P. Singleton by Elizabeth L. Silver (Crown Publishers, Inc., hardcover, $25.00)
A stunning and thought-provoking psychological novel about guilt, betrayal, and remorse told in an unusual set of flashbacks by a woman on death row, and in letters to the victim by her bereaved mother. The reader is forced to rethink his idea of guilt and innocence and what punishment is just, as the dark but beautifully written story slowly reveals the true nature of the main characters.

 

Sandstorm Sandstorm by Alan L. Lee (Forge Books, hardcover, $24.99)
An ex-CIA agent, current CIA agents, an Israeli spy, a Mossad agent, a US Senator, and a US billionaire all seem to be involved in an operation involving Iran's nuclear capabilities that could kill thousands. The question is, who authorized the operation and is it really what it seems to be? This thrilling debut novel is a very believable look at how CIA operations are undertaken, and an equally believable look at how easy it might be for special interests to have their own agenda. Non-stop action and intrigue make this an espionage novel not to be missed.

This is a book about incredible tragedy and loss and how second chances are available, but you have to be willing to risk your heart to find them. A cancer patient meets a reclusive hermit, and the happiness both thought impossible resulting from this meeting, will grab your heart and refuse to let go.

As each stage of the Testing is presented, Cia will be faced with two questions: Will she be smart enough to complete the Testing, and how far is she willing to go to succeed?

How to Build an Android How to Build an Android by David F. Dufty (Picador, paperback, $16.00)

In late January 2006, a young robotocist lost an overnight bag containing a fully functional head of the android replica of Philip K. Dick, cult sci-fi writer and counterculture guru. It has never been recovered. In a story that echoes some of the most paranoid fantasies of a Dick novel, readers get a fascinating inside look at the cutting-edge technology in robotics, artificial intelligence, and sculpture that came together in this remarkable machine and captured the imagination of scientists, artists, and sci-fi fans alike.
