As you all probably know The Bookery is a used bookstore. But we do like to have some new items here and there that still go for an affordable price. We have recently started carrying two such things.
We are selling selections from the Wooden Books series. Wooden Books advertise themselves as books about "Mathemagical Ancient Wizdom." They are each around 50 pages in length and beautifully illustrated. Each book takes an esoteric subject like Stonehenge, Alchemy, UFOs, the Golden Section, or the Mayan Calendar and gives an easily understandable yet in-depth overview.
These books will inspire you about the wonders of history, nature and the universe. They even make mathematics fun!
We are also carrying these classic-book-themed earrings. Each one is designed to look like texts by such great writers as Whitman, Salinger, Vonnegut, Ginsberg, Shakespeare and Dr. Suess.
These sell for $10 per set and are also at the front counter. What a perfect Valentine's gift for a bookworm!
Lastly, we have a new member to the Bookery Family. Polly Diana Spring, born January 5th.
