You have suddenly found yourself on a Warwick's blog.... How did this happen? What does this mean? What will I learn here? Have no fear, gentle reader - we are here to help.
First and foremost, we are readers here at Warwick's. And we know that you are too, so allow us, if you will, to be your guides through the rich and magestic world of the book. The Warwick's blog will serve as a forum for our booksellers to write about the hot book topics of the monent - whether its about the incredible novel they just finished (see example below) or the amazing news about the forthcoming Sony E-Readers or the scathing review of So-and-So's new book in the New York Times - this is the place to hear what our Bookies have to say.
For instance - I loved the book Everything Matters! by Ron Currie, Jr. Oh, do tell:
Imagine that you were born with the absolute, unquestionable knowledge that the world would end in a fiery comet collision somewhere around your 36th birthday. How would you live your life knowing that everything you say, think, or do is relatively futile – or at least decisively finite? Would you throw it all away, would you try & save the world, or would you just...live? This was a book that completely caught me off guard – both with Currie’s brilliant narrative crafting and with the story’s powerful, raw humanity. Sharp, intelligent humor permeates every page & is the driving force behind it all – without laughter, the very idea of this would be too morose & depressing. Instead, Junior’s life story makes for one of the most original & compelling novels I have read in a long while. It’s rare that you read a new novel & come out the other side knowing that it will become one of your all-time favorites....
See? Now the seed has been planted.... So check back often for updates - we also have a Facebook page and a Twitter page - plenty to keep you entertained while away from La Jolla.
