Marsden Books Newsletter October 2016
How fortunate we are to be embedded in such a great little community where we are supported by such a loyal group of customers.
Many of you have been shopping with us for so long we count you as friends. It’s especially rewarding to see all our young readers coming in to buy books with such enthusiasm, followed by encouraging and involved parents and grandparents.
Long live the book.
New Zealand Bookshop day, Saturday October 29th
This is a special day when we celebrate bookshops around New Zealand. At 3pm we will have Ned and Gillian, the authors of “In the Bush” and “At the Beach” series. They will be talking about their books and will run a small quiz for visiting children. We shall have spot prizes. All children who visit the shop on Bookshop Day will get a goody bag to take home. Adults will be able to choose a “blind date with a book.” We will also have some surprise special entertainment in the afternoon.
