January 2016 Newsletter
Header_newsletter2 2

Our 20th year here on North Main Street in Boonsboro has been a proud year for Nora, Bruce and the staff at Turn the Page.  We continue to enjoy serving customers near and far.  Every single one of you recognizes the value in small businesses, and that support means so much to us.  In return, we work year round to connect our customers with authors in a way that’s personal--through autographed book sales, multi-author book signings and Girls’ Night Out events, where you never know which writer you might run into.  We want Turn the Page to continue to be a destination January2016for readers and authors alike.  So here’s to the next 20 years of making sure bookstores still matter!

Even with our extensive Book Club selections, local history collection, children’s favorites and the eclectic reading tastes of our staff, we can’t seem to escape our go-to genre—romance.   So that’s what we’ll celebrate once again at our February 6 Book Signing, as Eve and Roarke mark their 42nd full-length installment in J.D. Robb’s  In Death series with Brotherhood in Death and we continue to invite world renowned romance novelists to Boonsboro, home of the most romantic Inn BoonsBoro  and the charming Gifts Inn BoonsBoro.  

Speaking of the gift shop, if you’re in town early for the Book Signing, don’t miss the Chocolate and Champagne Reception at Gifts Inn BoonsBoro on Thursday, February 4 from 6-8pm.  The TTP staff loves sampling Zoe’s chocolates and browsing our neighbor’s amazing jewelry and art collection.

So this month, pick up a new book or two and let your love of romance inspire you!
