This Thanksgiving we are thankful for our colleagues, who make The Bookies such a wonderful place. So our staff can fully enjoy Thanksgiving, we will be closed on both Thursday, 26th and Friday, 27th November. Our best wishes to all on this most American family day!
Small Business Saturday Author Extravaganza!
We're also thankful for you, our great community of Bookies supporters. And we'd like to thank you with a special event. We'll be re-opening on Small Business Saturday
, November 28th, with a bang, for our our increasingly popular Author Day!
Why not start your holiday shopping with a book, signed by the author? Or ask our authors or staff what they will give their friends and family for the holidays? Our usual store discounts apply! Last year the store was buzzing on Small Business Saturday and we're looking forward to more fun this year - we have some amazing authors for you to meet! And in case you're shy, we've suggested a few ice-breakers to get the conversations started. Our Schedule of Authors and Books
