TWO Pre-order Special Offers! 

Hey, romance readers...

We've scooted our romance section to a new home on one of the new displays, and we're looking to add some muscle to it! So tell us your favorite romance author, your favorite series, what new, dashing page you're desperate to start turning, and we'll build up a list so we know what our romance customers are looking for and have them on hand more readily!

We can even do a "Romance Pull List"--email us your most anticipated books and we'll make sure we order them in so they're waiting for you on their pub date!

We know you're out there, romance readers, and we'd love to get you more of what you want. Help us get our section looking like the fanciest duke or dashingest rogue instead of the sad, wilted, jilted lover it is right now!

John Scalzi is coming back to Fort Collins! 

He'll be joining us on Sunday, October 21st at 7pm, at St. Luke's Episcopal Chruch (2000 Stover St). The event is free, but a ticket is required--this is so we know how many people to expect! Your ticket number corresponds to your place in the signing line, so the earlier you reserve, the less time you'll have to wait to meet John and have your books signed! 

 Email us, call us, or drop by the store to reserve your ticket today!
