We're about to reveal our annual list of Summer Picks! We've been reading like crazy to select 18 titles that we think are perfect for this summer. They'll be coming out throughout the summer, starting on June 15th. Every book you purchase from our list gets you an entry into a draw for free books! The promo will last until August 15th.
Humbertown's Annual Sidewalk Sale runs Thursday, June 18th through Saturday, June 20th. We'll have lots of great books at 50% off.
And of course we can't forget about our dads. Father's Day is on Sunday, June 21st, and we have a great selection of books from biographies, histories, and mysteries to golf and barbecue tips. See the Notable Non-Fiction section below for some ideas.
