Story Times

Story times will start up in September . . . when the "big" kids are heading back in school and everyone is back from their summer vacations. To begin we'll have one story time a week, but would like to add a second. First story times will include themes such as Off to School and Fabulous Fire Engines. Because Camalli is so close to the fire department, our Fabulous Fire Engines story time may include a walk next door to see the trucks and the fire fighters in person! Dates are to be scheduled in the coming weeks, so watch the web site for details.

What are you reading?

We'd love to know what your favorite books are . . . whether they be contemporary or classic. Give us your recommendation and we can include it on the shelf with the book(s) you think other people need to know about. Stop by the store for your "Community Pick" form, or e-mail us at camallireaders@gmail.com and let us know the book title, author name, and a brief description of why you recommend the book.

Wired & Wireless

In addition to books, gifts, cards, and coffee, we failed to mention we also offer free wireless access in the store. Just stop at the register to get your login key number.

We're loving the kid area! It has a lot of room for the younger set to move around, and some plush bean bags for relaxing with a good read. Our 8-12 section is bursting with good books, too! And the teen/young adult section a nice selection . . . remember, Stephenie Meyer's Eclipse comes out on Tuesday, 8/7. We also have Twilight and New Moon in stock for anyone who's ready to start reading this vampire love saga.

Grand Opening Sale ... and Coffee's On!

Camalli Book Company officially opened its doors Tuesday (7/31) with a ribbon cutting ... and our signs are finally up! We're on Simpson Avenue, just three spaces down from Pizzicato and right next to Complements in the Ray's shopping center.

Grand-opening sale . . . hard-back titles in stock are currently on sale for 20% off, so pick up your next read at a great price! The sale runs through August 15. While here, sign up for our frequent buyer program and earn a $5.00 credit for every $100.00 spent. Look for popular hard-back titles such as The Dangerous Book for Boys; Peony in Love; The Yiddish Policeman's Union; The Diana Chronicles; Einstein; Animal, Vegetable, Miracle; The Omnivore's Dilemma; and more.

We also sell Strictly Organic coffee in the store, as there's nothing quite like a good book and a good cup of coffee. And if a cup of tea is more your, well, cup of tea, then stop in for a cup from Harney & Sons.

We hope to see you soon!
