Hi Gang!

Good news: the response to our 2019 shirt featuring artwork by Amanda Candler has been fantastic! Bad news: that means we're down to nothing but a last few shirts in size XL, and we expect those to be gone very soon. If you haven't gotten one yet and can wear a size XL, buy yours now!

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween, and will celebrate a peaceful and delicious Thanksgiving this month.

As a reminder: if you'd like to bring in books to sell to us, please call us first at 818-509-2665 - we are frequently so overwhelmed with buying that we run out of cash, and we don't want you to be disappointed if you've made a trip to the store hoping to divest a little.

Thank you, and we hope to see you soon.

Have you ever noticed the big safe full of books behind Iliad's front counter? We get asked about it frequently. "Is it really old?" is a common question (the answer: no, we bought it new just a few years ago). But most customers want to know what kind of books merit storage in a safe (we think of these as the rarest of our rare books), so in this column we'll pick one book every month and tell you about it. This month's book is...
The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway, hardback first edition in jacket published by Charles Scribner's Sons in 1952. Condition is good, with fair jacket. Jacket has printed price of $3.00, letter "A" appears on copyright page; DJ is sunned, edges worn with several 1" chips, front panel is completely detached from spine; light sunning and edge wear to binding, book has a spine slant. $600

Margaret Atwood is certainly having an amazing year!

First, there's the success of the television version of her classic book The Handmaid's Tale.

Then, there was the Booker Prize for The Testaments, the sequel to The Handmaid's Tale.

Now she's been awarded the Order of the Companions of Honour for her services to literature. The Canadian author recently flew to Great Britain to receive the honor from Queen Elizabeth.

Congratulations to one of our favorite authors.
in 2016, 87 new ABA member bookstores opened for business in 32 states and the District of Columbia. That is almost a 43 percent increase over the number of store openings in 2015.
