In the violent world of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series, the phrase "winter is coming" is a dreaded warning. Here on Mercer Island, though, it's music to our ears. If the inhabitants of Westeros spent more time in their libraries instead of swinging swords around, they'd appreciate how pleasant the season can be. Books to give, books to receive, and most importantly, books to read!
We know you have a lot of holiday shopping to do, so we've front-loaded our events calendar this month. The first part of December is full of visiting authors and other personalities, but the rest of the month is wide open for drop-ins. And if you can't come in yourself, we're happy to have you shop with us virtually. By phone or on the web, we're always ready to take your order. Remember that we have ebooks and ereaders, too. Don't get left to the devices of others!
