SENIORS SAVINGS DAYS IN MARCH

 

We all know reading has big benefits for kids - it’s why we were so particular about our kids area in the shop and the titles we pick to fill it. But did you know that reading benefits seniors just as much?

Studies have shown that seniors who read have improved decision making, improved sleep patterns, improved brain activity, improved moods and increased social activity (see below for our book club where you can chat about books with fellow book lovers!)

Reading has been shown to reduce stress and contribute to overcoming depression and loneliness - a timely benefit with all that’s going on in the world right now. It can also prevent memory loss and delay onset of dementia. It’s the ideal hobby in which you can visit other places, meet new people, try new things all from the comfort of your coziest chair. 

All this brings us around to our big news for March - Senior Savings Tuesday! Every Tuesday in March we’ll be offering 10% off in-store purchases for seniors (60+) so come on in, browse, have a seat by the fire. It's the perfect opportunity to try a new author, get that book you've been hearing so much about, branch out into a new interest. We look forward to hosting you!

Here are a few titles to whet your whistle:

A Grandparent’s Love by Jackie Corley, Happily Ever Older by Moira Welsh, Chair Yoga For Seniors by Lynn Lehmkuhl, Keep Sharp by Sanjay Gupta, Radical Longevity by Anne Louise Gittlemen, The Self-Care Year by Alison Davies, Nanaville by Anna Quindlen

And as alway our fiction selection is second to none:

Lightning Strike by William Kent Krueger, That Summer at the Mettawas by Rosalind Knight, A Distant Shore by Karen Kingsbury, When We Lost Our Heads by Heather O’Neill, The Cellist by Daniel Silva, A Slow Fire Burning by Paula Hawkins, Bye Bye Baby by Ace Atkins.
