Let’s Be Weird Together by Brooke Barker & Boaz Frankel
We’re just tickled pink to have this lovely little book on our shelves today!
From the duo behind the @sadanimalfacts Instagram account and the Pedal Powered Talk Show respectively, Brooke Barker and Boaz Frankel, comes a warm and humorous illustrated gift book that celebrates both love and the delightfully bizarre quirks, habits, and traditions that make each couple unique and crazy about each other.
This is a book about weird couples and the tiny two-person universes they create.
It’s about accidentally wearing the exact same outfit. It’s about made-up songs. It’s about your rules for the thermostat. It’s about breakfast rituals, and funny nicknames, and long hugs, and that voice you pretend the cat has.
If you’re half of a weird couple, or if you have a favorite weird couple, or if you just love love, this book is for you. Get your book today and be sure to join us back in-store on January 14th at 7PM when we host the pair for a delightful talk and signing!
The Book of Science and Antiquities by Thomas Keneally
Bestselling author of the beloved Schindler’s List, Thomas Keneally, returns with a brand new novel that offers an exquisite exploration of community and country, love and morality, taking place in both prehistoric and modern Australia.
When award-winning documentary filmmaker, Shelby Apple, begins his next project re-imagining the life of the Learned Man (a prehistoric man whose remains are believed to be the link between Africa and ancient Australia), he unknowingly embarks on a parallel journey with the Learned Man, mirroring, in essence, the quest toward a deeper understanding of love, life, and death.
In this “meditation on last things, but still electric with life, passion and appetite” (The Australian), Thomas Keneally weaves an extraordinary dual narrative that effortlessly transports you around the world and across time, offering “a hymn to idealism and to human development” (Sydney Morning Herald). Get your hands on this deeply felt work today!
Trump and His Generals by Peter Bergen
If you’re the kind of reader that likes to be up to date on all things related to current events and the state of the union, then Trump and His Generals is the book for you. Here Peter Bergen, National Security Analyst for CNN, presents a riveting account of what happened when the unstoppable force of President Trump met the immovable object of America’s national security establishment—the CIA, the State Department, and, above all, the Pentagon.
From Iraq and Afghanistan to Syria and Iran, from Russia and China to North Korea and Islamist terrorism, Trump and His Generals is a brilliant reckoning with an American ship of state navigating a roiling sea of threats without a well-functioning rudder.
Lucid and gripping, this title brings urgently needed clarity to issues that affect the fate of us all. It’s not exactly the cheery book for the holiday season, but an utterly necessary for understanding the inner workings of this administration.

The Light of All That Falls by James Islington
The journey that began in The Shadow of What Was Lost and continued in An Echo of Things to Come now comes to its spectacular conclusion in The Light of All That Falls, the final chapter of the Licanius Trilogy by acclaimed epic fantasy author James Islington.
Though the Boundary is whole again after a vicious battle in the previous volume, it may be too late. Banes now stalk the lands of Andarra, and the Venerate have gathered their armies for a final, crushing blow.
All the while, in Ilin Illan, Wirr fights to maintain a precarious alliance between Andarra’s factions of power; imprisoned and alone in a strange land, Davian is pitted against the remaining Venerate; Caeden is confronted with the reality of a plan laid centuries ago–heartbroken at how it started and devastated by how it must end.
All these stories and more will collide in what promises to be an unforgettable conclusion!
These titles and more are available for purchase in-store and online at BookPeople now! And be sure to check back with us next week when we unveil a brand spankin’ new lineup of the hottest releases that week!
