FOR YOUNG READERS:
Caroline's pick this month is Nuts to You by Lynne Rae Perkins.
For the 8-12 age group, this month we're enjoying Andy Mulligan's Ribblestrop and Jennifer Holm's The Fourteenth Goldfish.
For older readers, we like John Sanford and Michelle Cook's Uncaged, James Dashner's The Rule of Thoughts (sequel to The Eye of Minds) and Chris Weitz's The Young World.
Our favourite picture books this month are Steve Antony's The Queen's Hat and Alexander, Who's Trying His Best to Be the Best Boy Ever, by Judith Viorst with illustrations by Isidre Mones.
We recommend Tim Cook's new book The Necessary War, Timothy F. Geithner's Stress Test, Michael Broers's Napoleon: Solider of Destiny, and Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz's Dr. Mutter's Marvels.

Have you heard about our frequent buyer programme? It's completely free and best of all, we keep track of it for you in our computer. No cards, no hassle. Each regular priced purchase you make earns you points. When you reach $20, you can redeem your points for free books, or keep collecting.
We have a number of great reads in the store. But if you can't find what you're looking for, we are more than happy to order it in for you. If it's print, we will find it.
We are more than just novels - we have a great selection of bios, mysteries, classics, cookbooks, history, and of course, children's books! We like to have a little bit of everything at A Novel Spot.
If you can't decide what to get the avid reader in your life, we also offer gift certificates in any denomination.
