by Alexander McCall Smith
First Edition, Signed in Store

We now have signed editions of Emma available! 

Emma: A Modern Retelling by Alexander McCall Smith is exactly as delightful as one might imagine it to be. Perfect for the Jane Austen fan, McCall Smith evokes the wit and style of Austen while telling a story very much in the 21st century and very much with his own humorous and gently biting commentary. This is the Emma that we know and love, recognizable but refreshingly new. If you can’t read Jane Austen again for the first time, then Alexander McCall Smith might just be your next best experience.

We now have signed editions of The Guilty available! 

Will Robie is the government's most professional, disciplined, and lethal assassin. He infiltrates the most hostile countries in the world, defeats our enemies' advanced security measures, and eliminates threats before they ever reach our shores. But now, his skills have left him. Sent overseas on a critical assignment, he fails, unable to pull the trigger. Absent his talents, Robie is a man without a mission, and without a purpose. To recover what he has lost, Robie must confront what he has tried to forget for over twenty years: his own past.

We now have signed editions of The Magic Strings of Frankie Presto available! 

Mitch Albom creates his most unforgettable character Frankie Presto, the greatest guitarist ever to walk the earth in this magical novel about the power of talent to change our lives. In Mitch Albom's epic new novel, the voice of Music narrates the tale of its most beloved disciple, Frankie Presto, a Spanish war orphan raised by a blind music teacher. At nine years old, Frankie is sent to America in the bottom of a boat. His only possession is an old guitar and six magical strings. But Frankie's talent is touched by the gods, and it weaves him through the musical landscape of the twentieth century, from classical to jazz to rock and roll. Along the way, Frankie influences many artists: he translates for Django Reinhardt, advises Little Richard, backs up Elvis Presley, and counsels Hank Williams.

by Rainn Wilson
First Edition, First Printing, Tip-In

We now have signed editions of The Basson King available! 

Rainn Wilson's memoir about growing up geeky and finally finding his place in comedy, faith, and life. For nine seasons Rainn Wilson played Dwight Schrute, everyone's favorite work nemesis and beet farmer. Viewers of "The Office" fell in love with the character and grew to love the actor who played him even more. Rainn founded a website and media company, SoulPancake, that eventually became a bestselling book of the same name. He also started a hilarious Twitter feed (sample tweet: I'm not on Facebook is the new I don't even own a TV ) that now has more than four million followers. Now, he's ready to tell his own story and explain how he came up with his incredibly unique sense of humor and perspective on life. He explains how he grew up bone-numbingly nerdy before there was even a modicum of cool attached to the word. "The Bassoon King" chronicles his journey from nerd to drama geek ( the highest rung on the vast, pimply ladder of high school losers ), his years of mild debauchery and struggles as a young actor in New York, his many adventures and insights about "The Office," and finally, Wilson's achievement of success and satisfaction, both in his career and spiritually, reconnecting with the artistic and creative values of the Baha i faith he grew up in.

But inside the wine cellar, they find something considerably more disturbing: a bricked-up niche that once held a crumbling skeleton.

As his body lies unconscious, Ruiz's spirit encounters the people, ideas, and events that have shaped him, illuminating the eternal struggle between life unending energy and truth and death matter and subjective knowledge in which we are all called to engage.
