Dear Annie,

 

Spring has sprung, and everything is starting to bloom, including the book world! Every publisher can boast many fantastic books over the next couple of months. I've listed just a handful or two here, but believe me when I say that it is possibly the most exciting selections of books of all genres in the Christmas lead-up that I can remember. I need another pair of eyes.

 

Christmas is not as far away as you may think! I welcome layby and we already have some Christmas wrapping paper, so for those who are embarrassingly organised, we can help!


Please remember that we now are on Facebook, so I will try to keep tempting you with great new releases and events, as well as the odd customer review.


Happy reading,

from Annie & Lyn

ADVENTURES OF MAX

Adventures of Max

Max and his family, his mother, father and little sister Belle move from the city to the ocean town of Peregian Beach on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia. Max takes on many adventures, but there is also an unexpected and unusual friend Max finds and shares his adventures with. You will all fall in love with Little Dude and his love for the ocean. Little Dude is a talking dolphin with a tuft of blonde hair on the top of his head. Max and Little Dude become best friends, they share good times and have loads of fun. The Adventures of Max series is filled with fun times, surf culture, friendship and amazing adventures. The books are written for children from the age of 0-12 years. They make excellent bed time stories and are ideal for children learning to read.

 

Meet Michelle at the shop and then join her for a sausage sizzle in the park.

IN YOUR ELEMENT - Michael White & Linn Wiggins

In Your Element

Are you seeking to understand yourself better? If so, In Your Element can provide you with wisdom to aid you in that quest. It combines the knowledge regarding the early use of personality profiling and animal totems to describe the inherent differences in the way people approach life and learning. This book explores how other cultures have used this knowledge to help guide people throughout their lives, helping them to embrace who they are as individuals. It outlines some of the many historical approaches taken to this topic, and then overlays the use of simple lifestyle changes, food as medicine, and Australian traditional remedies as time honoured ways for people of all ages to enjoy better health and emotional wellbeing.  

 

The simple truth that people are different - not just in appearance, but in thought and perception as well - needs to be acknowledged. What might work for one person may not have the same effect for another, even down to the medicinal properties of plants. Our modern way of life too often fails to take our inherent psychological and physiological differences into account, a fact supported by substantial research and documentation. Authors Michael White and Linn Wiggins offer a map for both unraveling some of the mysteries surrounding who you are and learning how to influence your physical and emotional health in a positive way. This ancient wisdom for modern times can not only bring you closer to the truth of who you are, but to the people around you as well.

Here's a short synopsis from Penguin Books.....

 

"Tom Keely's reputation is in ruins. 
And that's the upside.

Divorced and unemployed, he's lost faith in everything precious to him. Holed up in a grim highrise, cultivating his newfound isolation, Keely looks down at a society from which he's retired hurt and angry. He's done fighting the good fight, and well past caring.

But even in his seedy flat, ducking the neighbours, he's not safe from entanglement. All it takes is an awkward encounter in the lobby. A woman from his past, a boy the likes of which he's never met before. Two strangers leading a life beyond his experience and into whose orbit he falls despite himself.

What follows is a heart-stopping, groundbreaking novel for our times - funny, confronting, exhilarating and haunting. Inhabited by unforgettable characters, Eyrie asks how, in an impossibly compromised world, we can ever hope to do the right thing."
