Excitement is heating up: Dan Brown's INFERNO is now out

Tuesday, May 14, 2013 at 11:15am


In his international blockbusters The Da Vinci Code, Angels & Demons, and The Lost Symbol, Dan Brown masterfully fused history, art, codes, and symbols.

In this riveting new thriller, Inferno, Brown returns to his element and has crafted his highest-stakes novel to date.

In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology Robert Langdon is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history's most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces . . . Dante's Inferno.

Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante's dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust . . . before the world is irrevocably altered.

Just released today, Inferno is already selling like wildfire. We've still got plenty of stock but at 30% OFF we don't expect them to remain for long! Come and secure your copy soon. You can find the book front and centre in our stores, right before the cash desk.

Graduation season is almost upon us - get your grad a gift that matters

Wednesday, May 08, 2013 at 10:31am

May is upon us, meaning plenty of university students are coming to the end of their tour of duty through post-secondary education, ready to put all that learning to use in a career of their choosing. And June is coming up, at the end of which thousands of high school seniors will emerge into the world, diplomas in hand, to face a million opportunities (and perhaps just as many challenges) laid out before them.

You'll want to set them off on the right foot. Dr. Seuss's Oh, The Places You'll Go! is a good start, but better yet would be a gift suited for the personality of the grad you're celebrating.

To that end, Bookish has published a Graduation Gift Guide, outlining a series of books ideal for grads. The list even helps you figure out which book would match the personality of your graduate. You can see the list by clicking here. It's got some great suggestions, and as always McNally Robinson is happy to help you find the titles.

Look after the jump for a list of the same books from our own website...
