If you're hoping to find that perfect gift for that perfect someone, best you contact or visit us within the next few days!
Holiday deadlines are already upon us. A handful of publishers and distributors have already reached their deadlines, and more are coming up within the next few days. Fortunately several of our suppliers continue shipping until December 17th (one week before Christmas), but even so it's best to order from them earlier to give the shipments as much time as possible to arrive. We all know that the weather can change quickly and severely in the Prairies, and this can alter shipping times, sometimes by a couple hours, sometimes by several days.
That is why we strongly urge you to place your orders with us as soon as possible, to give the distributors and the shipping companies sufficient time to get your books to our store!
Please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore if you have any questions, or if you'd like to place an order over the phone. Once we know what book you're looking for and where it's coming from, we can give you an estimate of when it should arrive.Categories: Store News, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Holidays
A snowy week has come to an end. Let's take a look at what occurred beneath all that white stuff, why not:
|NEW RELEASES from the past seven days||BESTSELLERS b>|
|> Fiction books||> Winnipeg Bestsellers based on this week's sales|
|> Non-Fiction books||> Saskatoon Bestsellers based on last week's sales|
|< < < Some highlights of the week < < <|
|• New Releases: The Wolf of Wall Street movie tie-in edition is now available. Don't let the terms "movie tie-in" put you off: the book is a reprint of the original autobiographical account written by the Wolf of Wall Street himself, Jordon Belfort. With a nickname like that, how can you not be interested?||• New Releases: The World Almanac and Book of Facts 2014 came out this week. You might be surprised how many new facts arise in a year -- or not, if you've been keeping up to date with these almanacs. It's never too late to start: check out the 2014 edition today!|
|• New Releases: The newest from James Patterson, Cross My Heart, is out now. And because it's new, and because it's hardcover, and because we like giving deals any time we can, the book is currently 30% off the regular retail price.||• Events/Bestsellers: On Wednesday, Roewan Crowe was in our Winnipeg store to launch her book Quivering Land. There was a great crowd for the event, and this success lead to the book jumping up to #1 in Paperback Fiction for Winnipeg bestsellers.|
|• Bestsellers/Events: Ian Rankin's Saints of the Shadow Bible is #1 on the Hardcover Fiction bestsellers list in both Winnipeg and Saskatoon. This may have something to do with Mr. Rankin's visit to Saskatoon on Tuesday -- and with his upcoming visit tonight in our Winnipeg store. Or it might have to do with the fact that it's a great read.||• Bestsellers: Chris Hadfield's An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth is still sitting strong on our Winnipeg bestsellers list. Considering the success of Mr. Hadfield's event in Winnipeg a couple weeks ago -- and the dozens of special orders we received after the event -- and the fact that Mr. Hadfield is an incredible man, a real Canadian hero -- I'm really not surprised. We'll likely be seeing An Astronaut's Guide on the bestsellers list for a looong time.|
|• Literary News: The Globe and Mail and The New York Times each put out their list of the top 100 books of 2013: The Globe 100 guide to the year's best books and The NYT's 100 Notable Books of 2013. If you're looking for book suggestions, either one of those lists can meet your needs.||• Events/Bestsellers: Rosemary Craig Shariff launched her book, Came Winter on a Summer Day, in our Grant Park store this week. The book is a moving account of Rosemary's time with her mother in the last few months of her life. Printed in-store using our Espresso Book Machine, the book rose to #3 in Paperback Non-Fiction in Winnipeg.|
|• Literary News: The final five of the 2014 Canada Reads contest have been selected. Read more about the finalists right here. The debates defending each finalist will take place in March 2014.||• Store News: Another reminder about holiday orders: It's possible for us to order books from most suppliers until the last week or two before Christmas, but some deadlines are coming up soon. We urge urge urge you to contact us ASAP to see about ordering any titles.|

|• Ian Rankin is almost here! As part of his book tour across Canada, see him in our Grant Park store tonight, Friday, at 7:00 pm.|
|• Join us this coming Tuesday, December 3rd, at 7:00 pm in our Grant Park store for the launch of Building the Orange Wave: The Inside Story Behind the Historic Rise of Jack Layton and the NDP by Brad Lavigne. The event will take place in our Atrium, and is open to everyone. Not in Winnipeg? Never fear! Mr. Lavigne will also be launching Building the Orange in our Saskatoon store the next day, December 4th, at 7:30 pm in Prairie Ink Restaurant.|
