News, Book of the Week

Now that Independent Booksellers' Week has drawn to close, we'd like to thank you all for your continuing support, not only during IBW but for every week. 

The window display has had to be changed, but, for posterity:

Rachel Joyce, author of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, returns with her latest novel, Perfect.  We've chosen this as our book of the week.

You can read an in-depth review in your free copy of the July issue of Booktime magazine (available to pick up in store), but here's a synopsis to whet your appetite:
In 1972, two seconds were added to time. It was in order to balance clock time with the movement of the earth. Byron Hemming knew this because James Lowe had told him and James was the cleverest boy at school.

But how could time change? The steady movement of hands around a clock was as certain as their golden futures. Then Byron's mother, late for the school run, makes a devastating mistake. Byron's perfect world is shattered.

Were those two extra seconds to blame? Can what follows ever be set right?
Don't forget that we can also supply eBooks for most eReaders.  Simply click the 'Indie eBook shop' image on the right hand sidebar.  eBook tokens are available to purchase in store.
That's all for now - let's hope for a 'perfect' week!
