2013 Holiday Newsletter

Happy Holidays from Curious!

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently?
And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt;
and perhaps it says "Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” 

Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland & Through the Looking Glass

We're getting into the giving spirit....

... by offering 30% OFF Manga, Mysteries and Foreign Language through the end of December!

Save some cash while giving your favorite booklover EXACTLY what they want -- and let them make the hard choices.
