Mystery Book Club

Mysteries lovers come enjoy the discussion of our favorite authors, books and settings.  Sometimes we even discuss our favorite way of doing away with someone.

Treats are always offered so as we discuss we enjoy a treat.  Sometimes the recipe will even be prepared from the books we have read.

January 11th at 2 pm we will be meeting again.  So come join us as we share our favorite bibliophile mysteries.  One author we thought about reading was Kate Carlisle.  There is also a series of mysteries about a book store ghost.  So search hi and low for your favorite or just needing something to read bibliophile mystery and we will discuss it during our next book club meeting.  See you there.

Let It Snow?

Snow and Skiers

A scene like this one may not be very likely here in Houston, where we sometimes run our air conditioners twelve months a year.  But we can still enjoy the idea of snow and cold weather that seems to go along with the holiday season in the minds of many.  Through the end of the year, we'll have our Christmas books on display and we invite you to come browse the table for cookbooks, craft books, novels, and movies with a seasonal theme.  As these materials are snapped up, we will replenish the display, so keep checking.
