It’s been a long time coming, but with travel restrictions lifted for domestic and international travellers, it seems many will make it home for the holidays!
We’ve made a few changes to our website this year to make your holiday shopping a breeze, starting with a holiday sale. Uncover the perfect gifts and take 15 percent off your book purchase with code HOHO15. The sale is site-wide, but we’ve curated a special collection of thoughtful gift ideas for everyone in your family.
Keep your family laughing through the holidays with Inked, a collection of cartoons, confessions, rejected ideas, and secret sketches from the New Yorker’s Joe Dator. And for some darker Cape Breton humour, pick up the award-winning novel Crow, full of big twists, big personalities, and even bigger heart.
Share a true story of mythical proportions with the National Business Book Award longlisted Unicorn in the Woods, where a group of New Brunswick geeks and dreamers sell their companies for a combined $1 billion, or the Balsillie Prize for Public Policy finalist On Borrowed Time, where the realities of earthquake prevention and the devastation of the next Big One come to light.
Discover the strength of words in The Running Trees, a collection of strikingly original — and humorous! — stories exploring how we desperately try to communicate with each other amid the gaps in meaning we create, and Myself A Paperclip, a deeply personal and reflective serial long poem confronting experiences with mental illnesses.
Explore Canada from coast to coast with The Best of The Great Trail, or keep close to home with local trail guides for New Brunswick, Cape Breton, Ottawa, and more.
Gift the love of art with the Maud Lewis Stamp Bundle, a jolly bundle that includes a copy of Christmas With Maud Lewis and a souvenir stamp sheet featuring three of Lewis’s seasonal paintings: perfect for any art lover.
After you’ve gone through the collection, stop by our home page and you’ll find our biggest website change: a new recommended section sharing personalized reading suggestions just for you. Tuck a special something away for yourself and enjoy all the season has to offer!
Warm wishes this holiday season and stay safe!
