Our mission: Enhance the community through support for the Sun City libraries
August 2022 Edition of the Newsflash
Whether you’re escaping the harrowing heat by sitting poolside with a “beach read” or by relaxing on your couch with a page-turning thriller, see what sizzling bargains await you at Books Around the Corner! This month, we are excited to feature hot reads from four outstanding authors:
Half-off all books by Danielle Steel! Hailed as “one of the bestselling authors of all times,” Danielle Steel is an American writer of romance novels. Her books often feature prestigious families facing a tumultuous crisis.
Half-off all books by Jack Higgins!Also known as Henry Patterson, Jack Higgins is a renowned British author of espionage novels. For many, he is best known for his 1975 thriller The Eagle Has Landed.
Half-off all books by Patricia Cornwell! American crime-fiction writer Patricia Cornwell is popular for her series featuring Kay Scarpetta, a medical examiner who is usually embroiled in plots which emphasize forensic science.
Half-off all books by Stuart Woods! Prolific American writer of many famous series, Woods is notably known for the legal thriller series centered around Stone Barrington, an ex-NYPD detective who becomes a lawyer and takes on shady cases.
But wait! Our specials don’t end with books this month... We are also offering all DVD’s and audio books in the store at half price!
Our shelves are brimming with family-friendly picks like Ice Age, March of the Penguins, Addams Family, and Nanny McPhee, as well as TV Westerns like Cheyenne and Maverick. No matter what topic interests you... religion, travel, classic fiction, or non-fiction, we have many enticing selections to choose from. August gives us permission to slow down and indulge in leisure activities. Our volunteer staff invites you to do just that in our air-conditioned bookshop where you can browse, find solace, and encounter your next great adventure! “I love walking into a bookstore. It’s like all my friends are sitting on shelves, waving their pages at me.” Tahereh Mafi COVID concerns continue in our community despite decreasing numbers of deaths and hospitalizations. Whereas we respect Maricopa County’s decision to drop the mask mandate, because of the bookstore’s small space, we strongly encourage volunteers and members of the public to wear a mask when in the bookstore.
