“From that time on, the world was hers for the reading. She would never be lonely again, never miss the lack of intimate friends. Books became her friends and there was one for every mood. There was poetry for quiet companionship. There was adventure when she tired of quiet hours. There would be love stories when she came into adolescence and when she wanted to feel a closeness to someone she could read a biography. On that day when she first knew she could read, she made a vow to read one book a day as long as she lived.”
― Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

We would like to congratulate Jim Grayson, a friend of Village Book Shop, who has recently published his first novel which is available on Amazon now.
Trailer Vamp – Love Bites: A Josh Blackthorn Adventure is a very fun book that members of Village Book Shop were among the lucky few to get to read early versions of this book and watch it grow. (There is even a mention of us, the Glendora writers critique group, in the acknowledgements!) This story, the first in a series, is Vampire-lite. We fell in love with Josh Blackthorn and his eclectic group of friends as we followed them through some exciting adventures. Jim Grayson is currently in the process of writing the second book in the series. Please consider getting yourself a copy of Trailer Vamp. It is a great story that had us laughing until we cried.
Want to talk to us? Please do!
We can be reached in a few ways.

Jennelle (also known as skybluefusion) is a true novice and would appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and assistance.
Today’s deal is on the hardcover book Bridal Memories which is compiled by Blue Lantern Studio. This book is a collection that represents the most beautiful, inspiring words and images from bridal books dating from the 1890s to the 1930s. The book contains plenty of space to record facts and memories. This makes a great gift for any bride-to-be!
