Color Wheel of Books!

We have a table back toward our children’s department that has been a carousel of colors lately! The first week the books were all bright yellow and we had lots of compliments on the interesting, cheerful display. No themes, just color. But lots of interesting books are yellow.

Ellyn, who does many of our displays, decided to go with the karma. Since then, our wheel of color table has been blue, orange, and purple. This week, in light of the dreary weather forecast, it is all grey.

But still, the books are all lovely and intriguing! You want to linger. And as you watch the table, you are amazed at all the intriguing covers in so many shades.

We’ll probably end up with a rainbow table toward the end. But until then, what color would you like to see? Bet you can’t stump us!

New Title Tuesday: March 13th

Happy Tuesday! As soon as I saw the cover of Let's Have A Tree Party! by David Martin I knew that I had to get a copy in my hands. John Manders illustrations are similar to those in some of my favorite books, such as You Will Be My Friend! by Peter Brown and I Want My Hat Back by Jon Klassen. I am also very excited to read Gail Carson Levine's Forgive Me, I Meant to Do It: False Apology Poems. Booklist finds that, "Levine includes [William Carlos] Williams' poem and encourages readers to write their own false-apology verses, in your own cruel ways. But, she warns, You have to be mean and grouchy." I am sure any fan of snark, wit and silly poems will enjoy this book!

Congrats Susan Wiggs!

Bainbridge Island author Susan Wiggs has made it back onto The New York Times Best Sellers list with the mass market paperback reissue of her 2005 novel, Table for Five.

As described on, "Table for Five is the story of two people, Lily Robinson and Sean McGuire, who have nothing in common. Lily guards her independent lifestyle with a ferocity that hides a fear of love and the pain it can bring. Sean has always been a rolling stone, making his own way. But with the sudden death of a couple close to them both, the two become joined in grief and a knowledge that they must step up and care for the orphaned children of their friends. With little more than hope and dedication, these five embark on a cross-country road trip filled with the ups and downs, the joys and frustrations that make up a family. Along the way, Lily and Sean and these troubled children will discover that even when you’ve lost everything, love still remains."

Susan Wiggs is a fantastic customer and friend of Eagle Harbor Books. We carry many of her books and if you would like to order a signed copy, please visit our website or contact the store directly here.
