It's Not Too Late (Yet)! - Curious Holiday Gift-Giving Newsletter

Don't Fret!
Let Curious help. 
We have countless unique, inexpensive gift ideas 
for that hard-to-shop-for person on your list.

"Books make great gifts because they have whole worlds inside of them. And it's much cheaper to buy somebody a book than it is to buy them the whole world!" - Neil Gaiman

The holidays are upon us, and the bookshop is hoppin' with holiday shoppers in search of a good read. (And a good deal!)

In addition to our selection gently-used books for all ages, and the latest bestsellers (which are 20% OFF!)...

We've recently acquired:
Vintage Maps ranging in age and price (1920s - 1960s; $2 - $12 each); Fabulousliterary classics published by Library of America, in slipcase (which are 25% OFF); a heap of books for all ages, perfect to stuff into stockings; Beautifullyillustrated books for Children; A mountain of YA Science Fiction and Fantasyhardcovers (currently 25% OFF); paperback and hardcover Mystery and Suspensenovels to keep you up all night; High-quality Art Books of all types (many are 25% OFF!), including the Masters, Gallery Collections, How-To guides, and pretty coffee table books sure to please.

Still need to get some gifts? We have books, magazines, posters, vintage comics, pulps, weird little pamphlets, pins and who knows what (even us, sometimes) for all gift purposes and porpoises!

Browse our selection of amazing, high-end First Editions and Rare books, Signed books, Limited Editions, hard-to-find Comics, beautiful Science Fiction Pulps from long, long ago, when robots and bug-eyed monsters constantly kidnapped women in metal bikinis, for some reason.

Our Children's Section is brimming with beautiful, inexpensive, gently-used books for all ages and interests.

We have Nostalgic gifts, Sentimental gifts, Funny gifts, Gag gifts, Unexpected gifts, and even some Secret gifts (Shh!). Content generated as little as a few weeks ago to thousands of years ago, across what you'd call a wide range of subjects. We've got what you're looking for, and what you don't even know exists.

If none of these things tickle your fancy, GIFT CERTIFICATES are 20% OFF. They make a great gift in case you have to buy for someone difficult (or if you like free money).

Current Sales: 25% OFF all Used Hardcover books! Even the rare stuff behind the counter! And, 20% OFF all NEW books! Every single one. Even the cool Zelda book, the latest Stephen King novel, and the new Lovecraft omnibus.

Holiday Hours:
Monday - Saturday: 10 - 8
Sundays: 12 - 5
Dec. 24th (Xmas Eve): 10 - 4

Save some cash, and your pockets will jingle all the way home --  We'll gladly validate parking if you park in a City of East Lansing lot or ramp. With a purchase, we'll cover a half-hour of your parking total. (If you're here for a while and buy a bunch, we'll help you out even more!) Oh, and PARKING IS FREE in Downtown East Lansing on December 24th.

Best Wishes in the Coming Year,
Ray, Audrey and the Curious Gang
