This Saturday, Books Inc. Chestnut street is hosting a Room To Read fundraiser. There will be a storytime for tots, but child-free grown-ups rejoice! You don't HAVE to listen to the stoytime, or even go into the kids' section to do your part! 20% of ALL SALES STOREWIDE from 11am-2pm will be going to Room To Read's local language publishing program. So if you have a book you've been meaning to get, waffling over, thinking about or even just wanting for no good reason, Saturday, April 9th would be the perfect time to come in and purchase! So come in, shop, and help a FABULOUS non profit bring education and literacy to children around the globe!

You can purchase a copy of the book Mac is reading here.

Special Oh My Gosh, Stories! Guest, MAC BARNETT takes reading The Clock Without a Face aloud TOTALLY FOR SERIOUS.

3 videos from a reading at the Burlingame Public library, books furnished by Books Inc!

Found a link to this great YA blog in a tweet from (upcoming guest) Ms. Holly Black herself! The current review is of her newest book, The Red Glove.

Once Upon a Twilight
We're freaking pumped to host CASSANDRA CLARE and HOLLY BLACK for the upcoming  
Underworld Poster

 masquerade ball at our Opera Plaza store, and we hope (and guess) that you're equally pumped to meet the ladies behind the madness!

 

Tickets are still available, but space is limited! You can book them online here, or call 415-776-1111 to reserve them directly with the store. Tickets are $5 with the purchase of a book, or $10 solo. HOWEVER, if you decide the day of the event to buy a book after all, WE WILL CREDIT YOU $5 back!  Yep, NYMBC's got your back. (But, please try and save your receipts!) 

 

 This is a good loophole to know, because in order to get in the signing line, you MUST have bought a Cassie Clare or Holly Black book AT A BOOKS INC, by the author you wish to have sign your book. (IE, buy a City of Bones if you want Cassie to sign, buy a Red Glove if you want Holly to...)   

 

The ladies WILL BE personalizing! Books, that is. They will not be signing memorabilia, t-shirts, notebooks, pictures, Kindles, sneakers, bras or your pet dinosaur.

 

 Photos are allowed from the signing line, but unfortunately because of the overwhelming popularity of our fantastic guests, we cannot stop  the signing line for posed photographs. However, the winner of our COSTUME CONTEST will get to take a posed photograph with the authors, that will appear on the Not Your Mother's Book Club Blog!

 

WHEW! Now, go get your tickets (if you haven't already!)  and we'll see you there!

Recently, we had the adorable Lindsey Leavitt out as a guest. Not only is she super nice but she's also willing to partake in totally silly videos as the request of NYMBC. So thanks, Lindsey! You're a good sport, and a great author!

Flip Usually, waking up on the wrong side of the bed just means a cruddy day. But for 14yr old Alex, it means waking up a whole different person. With a whole different life. Though he's still Alex on the inside, he now lives inside the body of a boy called Flip (short for Phillip) who's cooler, taller, better looking (even better endowed!) than Alex was previously. And while living in Flip's body does have its advantages, like making out with pretty girls who would have otherwise completely ignored him, Alex cannot let go of his previous self. Alex makes for an entirely relatable and sympathetic main character, even though his predicament is so otherworldly. Bedford elegantly combines humor, honesty and humanity with a high concept plot that keeps the pages turning, the laughs coming and the tears rolling. On sale April 5th, for ages 13+
