And in Curious Book Shop News...

Later this month you'll receive a "proper" book shop newsletter, but we thought we oughta mention a few new arrivals: Gorgeous, high-quality Art Books; a trove of Science Fiction; French books galore!; Poetry to please all; general Cook Books to whet your palate; and plenty of General Fiction.

Our sister shop, The Archives, has acquired a large number of beautiful, boxed Folio Society editions in fabulous condition. Many will be available at the big book & paper show, but not all of them. Stop by their cozy shop and peruse their collection!

We're quite excited for the big show. Packing has begun, so please excuse the big gaps on our shelves in the coming days. Also, keep in mind that Curious will CLOSE EARLY this SATURDAY, at 7pm. The shop will be OPEN on Sunday from noon until 5pm, and the shop will be hoppin' with book show fans searching for extra deals. Curious will be CLOSED on Monday the 6th, for a much-deserved and very appreciated Staff Recovery Day. We'll be full of pancakes and back to our regular store hours on Tuesday, the 7th.

Many thanks for your continued support, Book Lover.
We'll see you at the show!

Ray, Audrey and the Curious Gang
