Are you confused about the delicate intricacies of Microsoft Office programs? Are you dying to know what a hashtag is (and how to use one)? Does it just kill you to know that you have no idea which wine pairs properly with which entrée?

May is “Dummies Month” and when you visit Books & Co. this month you will get your Dummies Guide books at 20% off! This is the time to learn!
Now. (Perhaps most importantly!) Did you know that Books & Co. offers a children’s story time every Saturday morning at 10am? We do! Our lovely and amazing bookster Asia invites your wee gaffers into fantastic new worlds and teaches them about manners, how to hunt bears (swishy, swashy through long wavy grass) and the gastrointestinal problems faced by contemporary canines with the use of our favourite children’s books! Bring the family in, and leave the kids in Asia’s care while you enjoy a coffee and a browse around the bookshop!
That’s it for this week, folks! Don’t forget to check us out on Facebook (we love your feedback), Twitter and on our fantastic homepage!
