These categories are filled with books that your friendly neighborhood bookseller has chosen specifically for the site, and we hope that this will make it easier for our customers to find what they are looking for.
That's all for now, folks! Until next time, remember - don't feed the monsters under your bed (we hear it only encourages them).Categories: Site News

This last year we've been trying something new with our teen book clubs: instead of reading and discussing books that have been out for a while, we've decided to read and discuss books that haven't even been published yet. Upon signing up (it's free!), every teen gets an Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of a book, and at the appointed date they come to the store and discuss what they've just read with our friendly neighborhood bookseller Margaret. Thus far, the response has been fantastic!
The next session will be in the fall. Keep checking back for dates!
Here is a listing of the books the Be First club has read so far, as well as our teen readers' reactions to them. These are now available at a McNally's near you!
