This Week: Living Large Book Club AND Third Thursday with Chris Singleton!

On Tuesday, we’ll be hosting our “Living Large” bestsellers book club, featuring a wonderful read: Join us for fun, food, and lively discussion around The Bloomsbury Girls by Natalie Jenner!

*Named a Most Anticipated Book of 2022 by Katie Couric Media, the CBC, the Globe and Mail, BookBub, POPSUGAR, SheReads, and more!*

Natalie Jenner, the internationally bestselling author of The Jane Austen Society, returns with this compelling and heartwarming story of post-war London, a century-old bookstore, and three women determined to find their way in a fast-changing world.

Bloomsbury Books is an old-fashioned new and rare book store that has persisted and resisted change for a hundred years, run by men and guided by the general manager’s unbreakable fifty-one rules. But in 1950, the world is changing, especially the world of books and publishing, and at Bloomsbury Books, the girls in the shop have plans…

Then: Third Thursday

AND…Third Thursday’s theme this month is “Christmas in July” – Here at Main Street Reads, we’ll be featuring famed author, baseball player and speaker Chris Singleton with his latest release, Baseball Around the World! ALL Little Leaguers get 10% off their books!

It might be America’s favorite pastime, but baseball isn’t just an American sport!

From Cuba to Japan, Australia to Italy, a diverse melting pot of countries and cultures have embraced the ole ballgame. In Baseball Around the World, you’ll take a multicultural world tour to meet the nations and players who have pushed baseball to international popularity–with a twist, of course.

Find out what they eat at Japanese baseball stadiums, how a gold rush brought baseball to Australia, why South Korean games are allowed to end in a tie, and much more in this home run of a book!
