It’s that time of year once again – the first snow has fallen, the days are getting shorter, and it’s officially December. For Byrd’s Books, December brings a happy anniversary. It was one year ago on December 10th, 2011 that Byrd’s Books “soft” opened its doors. Downstairs was still under construction, the power tools had just been put away, and folks braved the mess to make it up the stairs to visit our new bookstore. Since then, it has been a wonderful year full of author talks, slide shows, food and wine events, Where’s Waldo, Sidewalk Sales, Farmer’s Markets, Puppet Shows and Story Hours for little ones. Byrd’s Books could not be happier with its first year, and we are proud to be a part of the Bethel community.
With the arrival of December, many of you are undoubtedly preparing to begin buying gifts for the holiday season, and what better gift than a book? Byrd’s Books has you covered, no matter who’s on your list – we have books for every age and interest you can imagine! In fact, we have free copies of the New England Independent Booksellers’ Association available in-store, and we carry a wide selection of titles from the list. Click here to browse our Holiday Picks from the NEIBA catalogue, and make sure you click on “Older Posts” at the bottom of the page to see the complete selection! Each book has a brief message from our staff in italics describing an appropriate audience for the book, so you’ll be sure to choose the perfect gift. The Holiday Picks can also be found by clicking on “Holiday Picks” in the drop-down menu below “Home” on our menu.
As always, Byrd’s Books has a large selection of discounted books available as well – with discounts of up to 70% off the list price, it’s a great place to do holiday shopping on a budget.
We also have a large selection of Christmas- and holiday-themed books on display, as well as holiday cards (both individual and boxed sets). If you’re looking for the perfect gift or just the perfect card, you’re sure to find it here. As always, Byrd’s Books offers gift cards – the perfect gift for that one person who’s just impossible to shop for.
The staff at Byrd’s Books wishes you all a safe and very happy holiday!
