There is so much change happening in all aspects of our lives, climate change, Brexit, advances in technology, especially the internet, and now, our NZ Post!
Over time, we have tried to keep Marsden books as a place of refuge and respite from the challenges in your busy lives. The bookshop has been part of the Karori Community since the 1980s. Although we have made some small changes over the years, the essence of the shop has remained, an oasis for booklovers of all ages.
Futuna: This month, a beautiful new book is being published by Victoria University Press and The Futuna Charitable Trust on The Futuna Chapel in Karori. It is edited by Nick Bevin and Greg O’Brien. There is a separate information sheet enclosed about the book which will be available later in July.
A small number of special limited edition copies will be available for sale at $150. This contains special images and artworks. We shall have copies of this book for sale but register early if you would like one as there are not many being produced.
Adults: Three favourite authors with books coming soon.
Salt River Songs new poetry by Sam Hunt due this month.
Nutshell by Ian McEwan, due in September.
Commonwealth by Ann Patchett, due on August 24th.
The 78 Storey Treehouse by Andy Griffiths is due on August 9th.
Harry Potter and the Curse of the Lost Child by JK Rowling is available for sale here on Monday August 1st.
We are continually adding to our CD collection with new arrivals each week.
We shall continue to provide postal services despite the closure of the Karori Postshop. Our post is collected daily at 4:30 Monday to Friday. There is no collection on Saturday. In general, when you are posting parcels within New Zealand, it is cheaper to use the red prepaid bags and these can be upgraded easily to be tracked or couriered. We are not able to help with car registration or bill payments. There are some changes to NZ Post’s charges for letters and parcels that came into effect on July 1st. If you still have Kiwi stamps or prepaid bags purchased prior to July 1stthese can continue to be used without any additional postage.
We welcome Charli back to our team on Saturdays and farewell Alice who continues her studies at Victoria University.
Happy Reading from the Marsden Books Team.
