Dear %%First Name%%,
Welcome back to our not-so-weekly email. We've got a great choice for our Weekly Special, just in time for some reading over the Fourth of July. A hit man is pursued for an assasination but it's one he didn't commit in This Week's Special, at a 20% discount.
If the high price of gas and the low value of the dollar has you staying at home this summer, you can still visit exotic, overseas destinations this summer with an assortment of foreign mysteries at MLB.
We've prepared a Mystery Travel Guide which outlines the many choices we have for books that will take you to Italy, France, China, Turkey, Africa and many other locations around the globe.
You can also use the search features on our site to locate books with particular settings, just enter the country you're interested in and you get a listing of books that involve that location.
We've got a new batch of Staff Picks for June that will give you some ideas of what to read over the summer. While you're there, you can check out the archive of prior months located on the left hand side of the page.
These ten books offer a wonderful assortment of picture and board books appropriate for young children.
We're pleased to offer this collection of Best Books for Babies to our customers.

When Stephen King wrote about Meg Gardiner last year he called her "the best thriller writer you never heard of." We agree but we're doing everything we can to correct the second part of that statement. Meg's original books are a set of exciting adventures featuring Evan Delaney and, though set largely in Southern California, were published only in England. Now she has a new publisher for her new series, starting with The Dirty Secrets Club and the Evan Delaney books are starting to see the light of day in the US, starting with China Lake, the first.
Cost of the Coffee & Crime breakfast is $5 and reservations are necessary.
Meg Gardiner's event is the second in a series of 6 Summer Coffee & Crime events featuring authors from around the world and around the US. With the price of gas so high and the dollar so low we thought we would bring the world to you instead of the other way around. Future events include:
