RW17


Ah, winter—our favorite curl-up-and-read time of year! We're particularly pleased with this catalog, thanks to the Victorian-era history and fiction that we're offering in connection with our forum inspired by PBS Masterpiece's Victoria, including books about the queen herself as well as the Victorian Mystery Series (which you'll find in our Fiction section). Here too you'll find a pair of novels by the great Colm Tóibín (including his award-winning Brooklyn), oversized colorful guides on the animal world, and How Science Works, an illustrated book that explains various topics in easily digestible portions. And, finally, our CD section will keep you busy with hours of listening with 5-CD sets of original album classics by the Byrds, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, and Jefferson Airplane. As always, we thank you for your orders!
