Sophisticated gifts for a very unsophisticated price at the Bookshelf

NPR Discovery CDs. Every month, somewhere around the first of the month, a small box comes in the mail. Inside are treasures, musical, magical treasures that fill the store with sounds of reflection, rejuvenation. We count on it, each month, to set the mood of the store. NPR’s monthly selection of six CDs is sure to dazzle the music afficianado and ignoramus alike. This month’s CDs are the latest from Patty Loveless, Sting, David Gray, the Avett Brotheers, Monsters of Folk, and the Swell Season. ($11-$19/CD)

Matchless: A Christmas Story by Gregory Maguire. From the man who reignited our love of Wizard of Oz, comes an enchanting retelling of The Little Match Girl. Snuggle up with your children, light a match and read this one by candlelight on a winter’s night. You’ll create a holiday memory you and your children won’t forget. ($19.99)

Bookshelf tee-shirts. Compliment the caustic reader in your life with the Bookshelf’s new tee: “Smart folks Read.” Or allow the idealist reader in your life to spread the potential of a book: “Once upon a time in a small bookstore in a small town, I found a book. I read it and loved it. It changed my life and so I passed it on. And before long, the world was safe again. ($15)

markin it down, baby.

I liked these (or at least liked the sound of them) and so I ordered a bunch. But they didn't sell and now I have to part with them... Unless you claim them at a sharply discounted price (50% off). They are all trade paperbacks and the list includes several Booker Prize, Pulitzer Prize finalists and National Book Critics awards.
