“It is what you read when you don’t have to that determines what you will be when you can’t help it.” — Oscar Wilde It's Fall! And, we're a tiny bit late in getting out the newsletter but, here's the most important bulletin: Turn back your clocks on Saturday night--remember: "Spring forward, fall back!" (Come on in the store this month and tell us a story about being late for something on a Sunday when you forgot...:). Downtown Zebulon hosted the annual Treat or Treat on the Square last week when we welcomed all manner of ghosts, goblins, and superheroes. What a great group of kids and parents stopped by! And, many thanks for the Pike County school system's donation of kid's books to go along with the candy! And, consider ordering your holiday book titles a little earlier than usual--we're hearing that supply lines may still be a little iffy again this year. Please don't forget that indie bookstores offer on-line ordering from BOOKSHOP--you can order from our very own page and support our store from the comfort of your home. and, thinking about the upcoming season, stay tuned for our annual collection of "stocking stuffers"! Join us on Saturday November 12th for the Author's Showcase--it's inspiring to talk with writers who wrote--and published--their work. And, if you are a writer remember our Writer's Group meets monthly to read their work, process ideas and enjoy encouraging ideas. We wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving--we will be closed on Thursday, November 24th but we'll open on the Friday of that weekend--stop by with friends and family to catch up! And, as always, let us know what you're reading! The Novel Experience Team
