We've had our fair share of talented authors in store over the past couple of months: Wenonah Hauter, Charles Martin, Kent Wascom, and now Southern favorite Karen White. Her new book, The Time Between is being called her best yet, and as avid readers, let us assure you: The reviewers are right.
The Time Between introduces us to 34-year-old Eleanor Murray, a woman consumed by guilt over an accident that paralyzed her sister but left Eleanor without a scratch. To alleviate her guilt, Eleanor begins caring for Helena, an elderly woman who survived living in Hungary during World War II. The Time Between chronicles their time together and what the two begin to learn from each other.
We're big fans of Southern writers -- of course -- and Karen White has always been a staff favorite. We're thrilled to welcome her on Monday night, June 24, at 6:30 p.m. She'll share a reading from The Time Between, answer audience questions, and sign copies of her books. It's a ticketed event, so give us a call in-store to reserve yours.
Join us, won't you? It promises to be a lovely way to kick off your summer reading.

It's been two weeks of chaos here at The Bookshelf as we closed the doors of our Tallahassee store and revamped our Thomasville shelves. If you haven't been by to see the fun, hurry in! We've got extra inventory piling up on our sale rack, and pretty new product lining our shelves, plus a great new selection of books filling the store. It's a fun time to be at The Bookshelf.
On top of all those fun changes, we've been prepping for Father's Day, and we think we've found the perfect gifts for dads of all shapes and sizes.
For the traveling dad: Herschel duffle bags, atlases, road trip guides, and books on CD
For the camping dad: Pocket knives and camping guides to Florida and Georgia

For the writing dad: Leatherbound journals, Moleskine notebooks, and Lamy pens
Come in and let us help you find just the right gift!
