Books for Dad
What books will dads be reading this month? Stop by The Bookstore for our in-person recommendations.
Summer is Almost Here!
What's on your summer reading list? As you pack up for vacation and various outings, don't forget to grab a few good books (and one of our cloth book bags, great for the pool or beach). We're pulling together recommendations for every type of reader.
A hot trend that has everyone talking is meditative pattern coloring books. Pick a pattern and lose yourself in the meditative creation. Stop in the store to see our selection of these books and start channeling your inner zen.
And join us for a stress-relief break all day Wed., June 17. Try out a page from the very popular detailed coloring books designed for adults, along with a cookie or two from the Lilac Bakery in Lombard (parent company of the Flour Barrel). No registration is required, we'd love to see you for coloring and cookies any time!
Our soon-to-be-graduating teen staffers (Abbey, Emma and Ellie) chose a few books they thought would be excellent gifts for grads this year.
► From Abbey: Art of Possibility
► From Emma: Congratulations, By The Way
► From Ellie: I Am Malala
