Exploring the Bookstore:
December is for cookie exchanges, secret Santa parties, family jigsaw puzzle nights and responding to our northern friends' pictures of snow with snapshots of palm trees and sunshine. Oh, how I love South Florida.
What to read this month:
Pick up the new "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone: Illustrated Edition" by J.K. Rowling ($39.99). Even if you've read this story many times before, this edition feels like a new adventure. Full color illustrations by award-winning artist Jim Kay fill almost every page of this oversized book. It's the perfect gift for new readers, enthusiasts and collectors.
Must-attend event for kids:
Barnes & Noble's annual Polar Express Storytime event is a must for all children. On Dec. 4 at 7 p.m., we invite kids of all ages to wear their favorite holiday pajamas and join us for an evening of hot chocolate, sugar cookies and a reading of this magical holiday classic.
Our store is packed with unique gifts—our educational toys and games, adult board games and collectibles make holiday gift giving a breeze. Our music department now carries vinyl records and turntables (that's right, they're back!), and our café is teeming with enough treats and caffeine-laden beverages to keep you cheerful all season!
