THE BOOKSTORE BULLETIN
Year in Review: 2019
2019 has been a busy year here at the bookstore, with lots of big events and all kinds of new developments as we continue to work towards being the best bookstore we can be.
The year started out on a great surprise when we were featured in an article for Only in your State, and we are still so grateful for the recognition.
In July we had the pleasure of hosting Maria V. Snyder for the exclusive US release for her new book The Eyes of Tamburah (which was only published in Australia).
The summer ended on an exciting note in August with the first annual Bookstore Romance Day when we hosted over twenty local romance authors and had an all-night slumber party.
Then in November, we opened our holiday pop-up at the Colonial Park Mall, which is the first time we have operated two stores at once.
Now looking forward to next year we are busy getting ready for our new Story Makers writing class, and the accompanying book club, plus another new book club starting in January
To put it briefly, 2019 has been an amazing year for us, and we want to thank each and every one of you for being a part of our bookstore family. See you in 2020!

~Review by Sam~
You Look Like a Thing and I Love You by Janelle Shane
Janelle Shane offers a fun and thorough look at today’s artificial intelligences with tons of real-world examples and her own research endeavors. Her examples are both hilarious and enlightening, and after reading I have a greater respect for what AI is capable of doing, and a greater understanding of what it is not capable of doing. Not to mention all the laughs I enjoyed along the way. The book is written so even an absolute novice to AI can follow along.
