Mother's Day

We love decorating our themed windows every few weeks - it's really very satisfying to be able to bring together books from all over the shop under one main theme. We get to showcase books you might not otherwise have noticed... and it's also great fun! So last Sunday when we were found out we were joint winners of the Hippodrome's Silent Film Festival window display competition along with Pebbles Jewellery you can imagine we were over the moon!

Flushed with success we've now switched everything over to a new theme - this time it's Mother's Day (which is fast approaching - April 3rd this year!) So whether you want to show your Mum how great she is by making her a card, baking her some sweet treats, or spoiling her with a wonderful fiction book she can lose herself in, we've just the book for you!

We've posted pictures here, but our themed windows are always much better in real life, so stop by and have a look for yourself, and pick up some great gift ideas too!

This weekend is sees Scotland's first ever Silent Film Festival take place at the Hippodrome in Bo'ness! It's sure to be a great event and we've created a themed window highlighting some particularly fitting books for the occasion! Maybe you'd like a book that gives a thorough introduction to silent film or perhaps you've always wanted to read Charlie Chaplin's autobiography... or maybe you'd like to brush up on your screenwriting techniques, or perhaps learn more about music in the movies? Either way we have the book for you! If you're in town over the weekend for the festival, pop in and have a browse when you're passing. We'd love to see you!
