Our Holiday Picks For You!

Our Holiday Picks For You!

There was once a little bookshop on the coast of Maine that had a staff so knowledgeable of books from the best-sellers down to the much more obscure and niche. You could say, “I need a book for someone and all I know about them is that they are 48 years old, a woman, and she likes to read.” And they’d find the perfect book, and you knew it was the perfect book because your 48 year old woman friend who likes to read (who you should really get to know better!) said it was the perfect book when she finished reading it. Once they even looked up a customer name for me so that they could study their purchase history and make a best guess from what they’ve chosen in the past! It, again, proved the perfect book.

We are not quite as adept at prognosticating the perfect book for perfect strangers, but we are good at making books that suit different fancies. We make books for the young and the old, as well as for the young at heart and the old soul. We make books that have meaning and give meaning. We make books that teach you about sailing, or art, or gardening, or politics. We also make books that will teach the little ones in your life about love, community, kindness, open-mindedness, and fresh chances.

We want to be a part of your holiday season and your year ahead, so we will do our best to be not just a little book publisher on the coast of Maine but that little bookshop that makes the perfect book recommendations…
