For you Harry Potter fans out there....

From Shelf Awareness this morning.

Watch this space dept.: Pottermore.com, a mysterious website featuring "a pink holding page with the description 'coming soon' and Rowling’s signature underneath," has been launched by J.K. Rowling. The Bookseller reported that Pottermore.com has sparked rumors that more Harry Potter novels are on the way, but a spokeswoman for Rowling’s PR company Stone Hill Salt said, "It is not another Harry Potter book but we cannot reveal any more at this stage, fans will have to keep an eye on the website. It will be launching soon."


Ooooo a mystery! We'll let you know more as we hear!

The Fetch author stops in at Chat Noir for a little Courage



Nico Rogers (author of The Fetch) stopped in for a wee bit of COURAGE before heading out on a 45 day canoe trip in northern Canada.

That's sharpie just in case anyone's wondering - we didn't tattoo him with "courage" in my handwriting, that would have been a wee bit creepy...

Have a fantastic trip Nico! Can't wait to read the stories that come out of this experience!

Meet the authors! Thursday June 23 3pm-6pm




Northeastern Ontario is central to the Canadian experience. It is a region rich in historical firsts, in quickly made and lost fortunes, and in communities that have remade themselves. Elliot Lake morphed from a uranium producing community to a retirement haven, Sudbury from the world’s nickel capital into an educational, health, and business centre. The book captures both the allure and the survivor tenacity of the northeast’s single-industry towns that either are breaking out of, or are still caught in, the boom and bust cycles punctuating the resource industries Canada’s wealth relies on. A historical and cultural compendium, Come On over! Northeastern Ontario A to Z can tell you where the statues of North America’s most significant explorers are; where you can walk in the steps of British soldiers who won a decisive victory early in the War of 1812; where you can swim with a polar bear; where you can experience Ojibway or Cree culture; where the first Hardy Boys books were written, and even where Winnie the Pooh, Grey Owl, and Shania Twain lived.

Loving this book!!



The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern


(from the publisher)
In this mesmerizing debut, a competition between two magicians becomes a star-crossed love story.The circus arrives at night, without warning. No announcements precede it. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not. Within nocturnal black and white striped tents awaits a unique experience, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stand awestruck as a tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and gaze in wonderment at an illusionist performing impossible feats of magic. Welcome to Le Cirque des RĂªves. Beyond the smoke and mirrors, however, a fierce competition is underway--a contest between two young magicians, Celia and Marco, who have been trained since childhood to compete in "a game," in which each must use their powers of illusion to best the other. Unbeknownst to them, this game is a duel to the death, and the circus is but the stage for a remarkable battle of imagination and will.


I can not put this down!! - Jenn
