Booksellers Read: August 2014

by Tyler Vitt - Saturday, Aug 30, 2014 at 12:52pm

It goes without saying our booksellers love to read. And that we love to talk about what we read. And, as you can see in the links below, a number of us like to write about what we read, too.

Matthew has been writing extensively about LIFE AFTER LIFE, the forthcoming A BRIEF HISTORY OF SEVEN KILLINGS, GOOD LORD BIRD, and the recent Hugo Award winner for Best Novel ANCILLARY JUSTICE.

Athena -- not as a bookseller but as a book lover-- encourages you buy ISLANDS OF DECOLONIAL LOVE.

Andrew likes books by funny people, including Rick Mercer's NATION WORTH RANTING ABOUT and Christopher Moore's THE SERPENT OF VENICE.

John C. took an adventure with INTO THE WILD and enjoyed every moment of it.

Dane doesn't joke around when talking about THE COUNTRY OF ICE CREAM STAR.

Dante, judging from her in-depth analysis, really thought about her 4/5 rating of THE BOOK OF LOST THINGS.

Miranda clearly enjoyed both THE KITE RUNNER and THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS.

And David K. composed a lovely treatise on THE SPECTRE OF ALEXANDER WOLF.

Timezone issues

by Tyler Vitt - Friday, Aug 29, 2014 at 3:58pm

McNally Robinson is aware that some customers, after registering for a class (or classes), may be experiencing difficulties with the automatic generation of the classroom time into their own iPhone calendar or other device as it relates to timezones. McNally Robinson's information is set correctly, but if you as an individual have your phone or other device set to a different timezone, the class may show up as the incorrect time in your personal calendar.

Please always check the website or classroom handout for exact class start times. We wouldn't want you to show up at the wrong time for your favourite class!

Introducing the McNally Robinson Biking to the Viking team, consisting entirely of booksellers!

On August 23rd they set out bright and early for the 85 km trek from Stonewall to Gimli. And tomorrow they'll make the trek all the way back to Stonewall! Despite the wet weather, they're having a blast.

See more photos of our team and the trek on our Pinterest board.
