Wait no longer! It is here at last! I'm talking about a new Sheriff Ray Elkins mystery (or thriller, as the book's cover calls it) from Aaron Stander. Destination Wedding sounds very Leelanau, doesn't it? Or should I say Cedar County?
But that isn't all. Lynne Rae Perkins, our Leelanau Newbery author, has a new book out this season, too, and adventures in The Museum of Everything await you!
And finally -- for today, that is; more new books will be arriving weekly, and there are always exciting new-to-you, previously owned books, also -- you certainly don't think I could resist a book about a bookseller, do you? The Bookseller of Florence: The Story of the Manuscripts That Illuminated the Renaissance is written by Ross King, author of Brunelleschi's Dome. It is illustrated, and the typeface is nice and large and clear. Books, history, Italy -- it's all here in one highly readable volume.
Have you been waiting for Dog Ears Books to open? My first customers of the season today, Friday, May 21, were surprised and delighted to find me here, thinking they would have to wait until after Memorial Day. But no, I had ordered new books, and I wanted to ease into the season before summer crowds arrived.
See you soon here in Northport -- your best excuse (unless you live here) for a beautiful drive!
