Get a Jump Scare from these Books
Movies and haunted houses aren't the only means of experiencing a jump scare. Let's remember Stephen King was frightening us with It long before the screenplay was adapted. Try some of these newer books from the horror genre. Happy Halloween!

Holiday Catalog Arriving Soon

Save the Date: Nov. 14!
Nov. 14 is Ladies Night Out in Downtown Glen Ellyn. The Bookstore will participate and we're inviting Chicago-area author Ronald Balson to join us for a book signing. Ron's latest book, The Trust, is a fast-paced mystery and would make a great gift for the guys on your holiday list. Jane loved it and thinks you will, too. Ladies Night Out participants receive a special discount on all four of Ron's titles at the book signing!
Bookstore Gives Back
Have you tried a "Blind Date with a Book" from The Bookstore yet? With a donation of your choice, you can choose a wrapped-up paperback book based only on the genre and a very short description. That's why we call it a blind date.
We're proud to announce that Bookstore Blind Daters have donated $500 so far just this year - all of which was given to the Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center. What generous customers we have!
