The Book Buyer's Corner

Adrian Newell (represented here by her cats Jinx and Lucy).

Welcome to The Book Buyer's Corner where Adrian Newell (represented here by her cats Jinx and Lucy), Warwick's Book Buyer, will talk about what's new and upcoming in the world of books.

Remembering Mary Oliver...

"to live in this world

you must be able
to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go."

Published: Simon & Schuster - October 16th, 2018

I love Susan Orlean's writing -- especially her ability to take a relatively unknown topic and bring it to life.

The Library Book centers around the devestating fire at the Los Angeles Public Library on April 29, 1986 that destroyed over 400,000 books, but ultimately it's a love letter to the public library system and the significant contribution they bring to communities all over the country. Part history of libraries, part true crime, The Library Book will appeal to history buffs and bibliophiles alike.
