We have two author visits this month. On Tuesday, February 7th at 2 p.m., Janie Chang visits to talk about her new book, Dragon Springs Road, a richly detailed novel set in early 20th-century Shanghai. Please RSVP as space is limited.

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.
