You Need Books- Here are some to know about!


Remember baseball? Our family is into it and sad to have the season pretty much not happen for 2020. But do I have a treat for you! My awesome brother in law has penned a book of haiku from his unique position in the game of baseball. He's the radio announcer for the Sacramento River Cats, the Triple A minor league team now affiliated with the San Francisco Giants. Johnny Doskow has covered a lot of sports, but been with the Rivercats now for nearly 20 years. You might remember him from 2012 when he filled in for 34 games for the Oakland A's. His book is a delight for baseball fans who will get the humor, the call up to the big leagues, and the everyday moments of an insider in the game- all in 17 syllables each. Here's the link for how to get the book, Johnny is selling it himself so when you order, you can get it autographed too! This is perfect for the baseball fan who is mourning the season right now. Treat yourself too!  (I don't profit from the sales of the book. I just love the guy and really love the poems.)

After more than a hundred grab bags have gone out, I've assessed what's still here and changed the categories below accordingly.

It's been fun to hear how some of the packages have been received and the delight of readers all over getting surprises!

These are the remnants of the book store stock so it's quite a wide range of things.

I will put together a collection for you and hopefully introduce you to some authors you may not have known before. What you get amounts to a half off sale! $25 per package.

The categories are listed below.  Click on the image to order.

Half of the amazing cookbooks that I had are now gone! These are now hard to find, some have gone out of print in the last year, or just plain awesome. I've combined the list of cooking, baking, vegan, food writing, and coctails and put them all on sale at 50% off cover price. That's right, half off. Click the link to see the list. There are usually just one of each, and when they're gone, they're gone and I'll remove them from the list. The half off deal is only on the books on that list.

None of these can be combined with other orders, although they can be combined with each other. A cookbook, two mystery packages, hey- that's fine! The more the better!

No return on these so be sure you're okay with uncertainty and the possibility that there will be some scruffed edges. This will likely be the last round.
