Some new books

We seem to be innundated with new titles at the moment!  Here's a few new children's books that have arrived from the Banner of Truth...
 'Wait till you see the Butterfly' is a book of short stories for boys and girls.  The stories are divided into 3 different age levels but range from 4-12yrs.  I have randomly picked out some from each age category to read and found them very well written and each with a Gospel application. All scripture references are from the Authorised Version.

'Heroes of the Faith' is a new series written by Sinclair Ferguson. The series starts with Ignatius, Polycarp and Irenaeus.  Published as quality hardbacks and with lovely illustrations, these would make good gift books.

White Monday

January 17th was Black Monday.  So we decided to paint this week white!  The whole of our office and storeroom is being covered in brilliant white - the first time for many years. The grubby walls have been crying out for a coat of paint, and we have echoed them.  I took a photo today of the state of the office as we moved furniture to make space for our extremely hardworking and highly to be recommended decorator.  Some might say that it doesn't look a lot different than normal...but don't believe them - Lorna's not at her desk!  We can't promise business as usual, but we are still taking orders and dealing with them as best we can.  Please bear with us.  All being well Friday should herald a return to normal service.  I hope so because I'm stuck up in the packing room with a laptop!
Anyway out with the old and in with the New Year.  Any suggestions for the artwork we could put on the walls of our new gallery??

Happy New Year!

By the grace of God the shop has survived another year when so many independent Christian bookshops have had to close, and we look forward to continuing in this ministry for as long as He sees fit.  Many thanks go to our loyal customers who have stuck with us through this recession even when we are unable to compete with the price cuts of the bookselling giants.  
We do make reductions when we can and it is always worth checking our sale pages to see the many bargains that can be had. We are now selling our 2011 calendars half price and some remaining Christmas cards are also reduced.
The ladies reading club is just starting its second book so for anyone interested in joining, now is a good time.  This book is more contemporary than the last and is by Martyn Lloyd-Jones.  If your new year's resolution is to read more, then the club is perfect for helping you achieve this. Let me know if you are interested.
