Cheap Books (need I say more?)

A quick post today, just to make sure that you’ve got our Open House Book Clearance in your diary – it’s happening this weekend!

The TBYL Store has to clear some stock, and I thought… “what better way than to have an open house?!” For two days I’ll have a great range of books for adults and kids, set up in my front room.

open houseNow, I know you probably can’t join me in real life, and so I thought I’d better share the goodies with you via the world wide web, more specifically, on Facebook. If you pop by our page on Saturday 22/6/13 and Sunday 23/6/13 you’ll find plenty of stock at really amazing prices.

They’ll be discounted, some at cost. It’s a great opportunity to pick up a fantastic read at a low price, plus a chance to take a look at the stock that the TBYL Store has.

A couple of tips…

1. RSVP here, if you want to make sure that you don’t forget to come on over and take a look.

2. Mostly, regular postage will apply to sales but hey, why not buy a few books at a time and save on postage? Or share with a friend? Happy to help cut down postage charges where I can.

3. These prices are exclusive to Facebook only – if you shop at the online store, you’ll probably find the the prices are different. Any questions, just ask!

4. To purchase, comment SOLD and I’ll be in touch – we can arrange payment via paypal invoice or bank direct deposits.

Most importantly, remember that more often than not the books you’ll see in the TBYL Store have been reviewed by TBYL in the past. If you want to find out more about a title, just search the blog!

Finally, I’d like to introduce a new feature on the blog, that’ll make it easier to pick up copies of the books you like the sound of. Where you see this banner on the blog…

Buy from TBYL

… you’ll be able to click through to the book in store at the TBYL Store. Most of the time I can have the book in mail to you the next day, and if it’s going to take any longer than that, I’ll be sure to let you know.

I hope you’ll join in the fun this weekend, I’d love to send you something nice!

Give-away: Send us a Christmas Card!

I love Christmas cards! It’s one of my favourite things about Christmas, and I try as to get my cards out each year, even if I have to do it a little last minute (like this year, phew!)

My obsession is with sending cards, but I also get a little thrill when I receive one in return. And so, I thought I’d do a little something different for this give-away…

I’m asking you to send That Book You Like a Christmas card!!

Black Frame 3

 

If you do, you’ll go into the running to win one of the gorgeous hand-made book covers now in store at the TBYL Store. They’re exclusive to our store, made with love and make beautiful gifts for bookish friends and family.

 

All you have to do to go into the running is to send TBYL a Christmas card, to P.O. Box 2074, Hampton East, Vic, 3188. Make sure you include your name, email and postal address in the card.

I’ll draw one winner at random on Thursday 27 December 2012, after 5pm. I’ll announce a winner on the blog and email the winner as well. The winner will be able to choose from the range of book cover designs in store at the time of the winner being drawn.

I hope you’ll join the fun! It’d be great to hear from you!

Friday Bits and Bobs

We’re starting another Friday and finishing off another week, edging one week closer to Christmas. For my own benefit as much as anyone else’s I thought I’d make today’s blog article a headline post full of bits and bobs. Here’s a few shots of information to get you into the weekend…

Find That Book You Like… Online
Did you know that you can find TBYL all over the internet? I spend a ridiculous amount of time online, and I find that each online space is a wonderful place to connect with people in different ways. Maybe you’d like to join me?

You’ll find TBYL on Twitter here…

You’ll find TBYL on Pinterest here…

If you’re looking for a place to chat about books, without leaving the house you’ll find our online TBYL Book Club here…

Of course, you should also bookmark our website www.thatbookyoulike.com.au as a hub for all these different TBYL goodies, including the online TBYL Store.


Blog Tours

That Book You Like… has a busy couple of weeks with no less than three blog tours on the calendar. On Monday, I’ll be chatting to Sally Harris about her new book Diary of a Penguin-Napper and then later in the week I’ll be catching up with the lovely Kate Cuthbert from Escape Publishing who’ll be telling us a bit more about their exciting new endeavour. After this conversation, I’ll be taking a look at some of Escape Publishing’s newest authors and I might even get to have a chat to some of them. Exciting things happening at Escape, and I can’t wait to be a part of it.


New in the TBYL Store

Have you taken a look at our newest editions to the store? My favourites… handmade Book Covers and Lego Earrings. Both are limited edition pieces, handmade with love and beautiful! Shop Now!


New Friends

Hopefully you’ve already checked out Little Birdy Tix after my feature in this month’s TBYL News: All Things Bookish… but if you haven’t make sure you pop on over and visit their website. They’re an amazing membership-based group that will help you to connect with promoters and artists so that you can check out new and exciting performances around Melbourne and Sydney. Best of all, once you’re a paid up member, event tickets are FREE! I’ve got a membership up for grabs as our newsletter give-away this month, so don’t forget to read the newsletter here and get your entry in!


A New Blog

For those of you who are interested in health and fitness, and would be keen to follow along with my current ‘health project’

I’ve started a new blog called Getting Back To Go. I started the blog mainly for my own benefit as a kind of logbook, and as such it’s a lot more personal than TBYL but if you’d like to watch along as I work at getting my fitness back and increase my ‘wellness’ after finishing breast cancer treatments, you’re welcome to have a read.

You’ll find the blog here…


The Reading Pile

Lastly, if you’re looking for any reading ideas for over the summer holidays, there is an absolute stack of great titles on the TBYL Reading Pile at the moment. Can I suggest a browse?

Happy Friday, and enjoy the weekend!

Story Time for TBYL

It’s going to be quiet on the blog over the weekend, because That Book You Life is going ‘real-world’ !!

In a first for TBYL we’re going to be running a Story Time tent, accompanied by a real-life TBYL Store at this weekend’s Pink Lady Art Exhibition!

The exhibition will be held this Saturday and Sunday (10am – 5pm) at the Brighton Arts and Cultural Centre (Wilson & Carpenter Streets, Brighton, VIC, 3186) and the TBYL story reading will start at about 11am on Saturday.

I can’t wait to share some of my favourite books… Ish, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse, some Nick Bland and Oliver Jeffers, with some lovely kids.  Hopefully it’ll help keep the little ones occupied while their parent’s enjoy the stunning art on show – it’s going to be a blast!

If you’re in the area I’d LOVE for you to pop by and say hi. You might even be able to pick up a book or two from The TBYL Store – it’s our first real-life set up, and I’d love your support!

The Pink Lady Art Exhibition is a community fund raising, raising money for BCNA and NBCF. It’s a cause close to my heart, and I can’t wait to do my bit in making this event a resounding success!
