” We’ve built a store that integrates the benefits of offline and online shopping to give customers an additional way to discover books and devices they’ll love. The books in our store are selected based on Amazon.com customer ratings, pre-orders, sales, popularity on Goodreads, and our curators’ assessments. And because we know customers like to test-drive Amazon’s devices, products across our Kindle, Echo, Fire TV and Fire tablet lines are available to explore,” Amazon Books said in a statement.

“To give you more information as you browse, our books are placed face-out with a review and rating card from Amazon.com customers. Most of these books have been rated 4 stars or above and many are award winners. These are truly fantastic books.”

Guests walked the wide aisles of the new Amazon store on Southport near Cornelia on Tuesday, some commenting on the book titles.

“You are a Bad Ass. I just thought that’s a cute title,” said Linda, from Chicago.

WBBM: Do you think you’ll come back here?

“Possibly. I’d be more likely to go to Barnes and Noble.”

Some of the younger customers were more impressed.

One woman drove in from Schaumburg, specifically to check out the Amazon store.

“Curious. I was really looking for metaphysical books. But they don’t have any. That’s OK,” said Cindy, of Schaumburg.

WBBM: Are you going to buy something anyway?

“Yes, I have three children’s books at the counter.”

This is Amazon’s first neighborhood store. The other four are in shopping malls.

Erika VanDam, the owner of Roscoe Books, about a mile away, said it’s a sad irony, since Amazon is responsible for the death of so many independent book stores.

“The American Writer’s Museum has the distinction of being the first, and only, museum of its kind, dedicated to honoring and promoting American authors,” board member Leigh Conant said.

Conant added, “We anticipate that a minimum of 100,000 people will visit the AWM annually, experiencing great literature and its authors in a variety of ways.”

Among the galleries will be one called “Word Play.” It’ll have interactive tabletop consoles that encourage visitors to experiment with words and even make up words and meanings.

There’ll also be “The Mind of a Writer Gallery.” It will include a giant roll of paper suspended from the ceiling to an easel. Every day, museum staff will start a story by writing a single sentence on the paper and visitors will be able to add to it using their own writing flare.

Gorgeous post Jinx X … The Barrett’s of Wimpole Street is also a great book love Browning …… Had to share on authors news … Ian

hocuspocus13

imag0833The pages went deep beyond yellowing they had turned a crisp shade of brown torn and tattered with bits of it crumbling in my hands

Pages that pulled away from their commitment to be bound by its cover

I touched the book with great care holding my breath with each poem that passed me by

The fragrance of yesterday took me to a place I never knew before a place well before my time the scent of that olde book was delicious

There was no challenge in its read for beyond those darken pages the words were fresh and clear

Age may have changed its pages but it had not tampered with its message

I took a book from my home library sat down and fell in love with Robert Browning…❤

BY THE FIRESIDE

The forest had done it
there they stood

We caught for a moment the powers at…

I love reading informational books for children – they are full of topics that will pique the interest of everyone. All of the winners of the best nonfiction picture book category for the 2016 Nerdies definitely fit this bill.

It would be fair to say that occasionally, I suffer from depression. It seems to be a common thread among some writers. I don’t talk about it often, simply because it isn’t the looming monster a few of my friends and family members face. But around this time of year—every year—it sneaks up on me: a weight on my chest that’s hard to shake. img_20161130_101550I find it difficult to blog, to write, and even to return emails. And while sometimes I think it comes because my family lives too far to visit as often as I’d like, or my book is taking so long to write, or because I will never be the Stepford wife with the time and ambition to make a Pinterest perfect home,  in truth: my depression is seasonal, caused by the lack of summer warmth; the eternal shades of grey outside my window.

This January I allowed myself…
