What's going on at The Book Spot?

The Book Spot is currently in a crazy fight for it's life. Since Danny and Julie went their separate ways a year and a half ago, it has been hard to get all of the stuff done around the shop. Just when things were finally turning a corner, we got locked out of the shop. Now the struggle is real.

What are we doing about it?

1) Danny is willing to sell the shop and train the new owner. This won't be cheap, it won't be easy, but it will keep our great shop here for years to come. Find out more information here: Store for SALE

2) A couple of regular customers set up a GoFundMe page to help raise the money needed to reopen and keep the shop as a part of the community. Find out more information here: GoFundMe

3) Keeping up business as usual. We do a lot of events outside of the shop. We do school visits and book festivals. We are going to keep that going because THE BOOK SPOT IS NOT CLOSED! We just can't get into our retail location right now. We will also look for ways to raise money outside the shop however we can. Keep up with our events on facebook at: The Book Spot on Facebook

Thank you for all of your help and we look forward to talking to you soon!

Omega City Launch - May 20 @ 6:30 pm with Diana Peterfreund and Mari Mancusi

Current Lonestar list Author Diana Peterfreund is bringing her new book, Omega City, to The Book Spot to launch it into the world. This new Middle Grade adventure is a great read for all readers age 10 and up. Diana has also asked our mutual friend Mari Mancusi to join her at the shop, so we will have TWO great authors this Wednesday at 6:30pm!

The first middle grade novel in an exciting new series from acclaimed author Diana Peterfreund, perfect for fans of The Goonies and The City of Ember.
Gillian Seagret doesn't listen to people who say her father's a crackpot. His conspiracy theories about the lost technology of Cold War–era rocket scientist Dr. Aloysius Underberg may have cost him his job and forced them to move to the middle of nowhere, but Gillian knows he's right and plans to prove it.

When she discovers a missing page from Dr. Underberg's diary in her father's mess of an office, she thinks she's found a big piece of the puzzle—a space-themed riddle promising to lead to Dr. Underberg's greatest invention. Enlisting the help of her skeptical younger brother, Eric, her best friend, Savannah, and Howard, their NASA-obsessed schoolmate, Gillian sets off on a journey into the ruins of Omega City, a vast doomsday bunker deep inside the earth,.
But they aren't alone inside its dark and flooded halls. For while Gillian wants to save her dad's reputation by bringing Dr. Underberg's secrets to light, there are others who will stop at nothing to make sure they stay buried . . . forever.

Join us at 6:30pm this Wednesday for a great Young Adult event. For more information on the event, please check out our facebook event at: https://www.facebook.com/events/920364384671819/
