January 2017 News:

Happy New Year to you all! (And happy fourth birthday to this newsletter.) We hope 2017 will bring you health and happiness and lots of time to read (which according to many studies is what keeps you healthy & happy). A new year brings new hours at A Novel Spot. Our winter hours for January and February are as follows:

Monday to Wed 10-5
Thursday to Friday 10-6
Saturdays 10-6
Closed Sundays

You may recall our staff reading challenge of 2016, which we upped to 600 books. Our final total for the year was 590—so close! We think we can beat that in 2017, so stay tuned.

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.
