Season's Readings from your local indie bookseller



Dear readers,

This is just a quick note to let you know that as of today, Tuesday 12 December, 2017, we can no longer guarantee Australia Post deliveries prior to the Christmas public holidays. We still offer free in store collection on every online order and will continue to process orders right through until Christmas Eve. If you have any questions about an order you've placed, please call us on (08) 8231 4454 to check the status.

In our final message of the year, we'd like to thank you for the immense support you've given us throughout 2017. From a record-breaking Love Your Bookshop Day, to book signings with some of Australia's leading thinkers and cultural icons, the success of the past year is evidence of what we can achieve with a passionate community behind us.

With every book you purchase, every event you attend, and each new friend you introduce to your favourite local bookshop, you help to strengthen the culture of independent bookselling here in Adelaide. With the recent launch of an online retail giant upon our shores, we expect competition to be fierce in 2018. But we're confident that there remains a place for independent bookshops in Australia’s cultural landscape, because we offer something no online retailer can: air-conditioning.

In all seriousness though, thanks for everything you do to help us grow. We simply would not be here without you, and we look forward to plying you with reading material, impulse purchases, and unsolicited advice for many years to come.

Wishing you a happy and prosperous Christmas and New Year,

Jason, Katherine & Kara

Autumn is for Reading . . .

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, March 30, 2015



Sun-drenched days and crisp, autumn nights: it's our very favourite time of the year for curling up with a good book! Featured below are a few of the best new books available for you to enjoy throughout March, April and May.

 

Mr Wilkinson's Simply Dressed Salads (Hardcover, $49.95)

Matt Wilkinson's passion is based on sourcing the very best seasonal and local produce to make simple dishes that allow the flavours of fine ingredients to shine through. His ethos is simple: food in season tastes the best, especially when it's grown in tune with nature.

And don't be fooled into thinking salads are just for the summer months: warming autumnal dishes stuffed with fresh root vegetables and wholesome greens abound in this beautifully presented cookbook.


Honeydew: Stories by Edith Pearlman (Paperback, $29.99)

Over the last few decades, Edith Pearlman has staked her claim as one of the great practitioners of the short story. Her understanding and skill have earned her comparisons to Anton Chekhov, John Updike and Alice Munro. Her latest work, gathered in this stunning collection of twenty new stories, is an occasion for celebration. Honeydew is a feast for the imagination. Read it cover-to-cover or savour each story as and when time permits—Pearlman's is a delicately crafted and thoroughly immersive world which you'll be glad to visit.

 

Dancing in the Dark: My Struggle Book 4 by Karl Ove Knausgaard (Paperback, $32.99)

Is it a memoir? Is it a novel? No-one's quite sure and we're not sure we mind! Dancing in the Dark is part four in the internationally acclaimed series of autobiographical literary bestsellers collectively known as My Struggle. This chapter charts Karl's life as a young adult, fresh out of high school and working as a teacher in a remote fishing village in the arctic circle. But, as always with the mysterious Norwegian writer, things turn very dark very quickly and his young character is lured by the vices which have plagued his own father's life. If you're new to the series, it's best to begin with Death in the Family: My Struggle Book 1.

 

So You've Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson (Paperback, $29.99)

In the grand pop culture tradition of his previous bestse
llers, The Men Who Stare at Goats and The Psychopath Test, investigative journalist Jon Ronson tackles the darker side of the internet and asks a very important question: when someone trangresses online, just how far is too far in shaming them? Simultaneously powerful and hilarious in the way only Jon Ronson can be, So You've Been Publicly Shamed is a deeply honest book about modern life, full of eye-opening truths about the escalating war on human flaws - and our very scary part in it.

The Most Good You Can Do by Peter Singer (Paperback, $32.99)

Philosopher, ethicist and author Peter Singer presents a challenging new movement in the search for an ethical life, one that has emerged from his own work on some of the world's most pressing problems. The concept is seemingly simple: effective altruism involves doing the most good possible. Singer introduces us to an array of remarkable people who are restructuring their lives in accordance with these ideas, and shows how, paradoxically, effective altruism often leads to greater 
personal fulfilment. The Most Good You Can Do is a practical, hopeful and ultimately inspiring call-to-action.

Airmail: Taking Women of Letters to the World edited by Marieke Hardy & Michaela McGuire (Paperback, $29.99)

Women of Letters have conquered the world with their passion for correspondence. Taking their literary salons on a global tour, they've collected an astounding and sweeping array of contributions from some of the world's brightest talents. Their latest instalment features writing from a range of Australian and international icons including Lional Shriver, Eimer McBride, Moby, Anne Summers, Julian Burnside, Val McDermid, Tim Minchin and Lev Grossman.
