The Avid Reader May 2007

Dear Book Lover,

Our newest room, Religious and Spiritual Books, is full of inspirational and thought provoking titles to feed your mind and soul. A Charles Dickens theme park opening soon in the UK (we're saving up for our flights) has prompted a new selection of beautiful collectible Dickens, and our Lost Classics series continues with three more timeless reviews.

Happy Reading!
