Dear %%First Name%%,
After a slow start, our Thanksgiving Weekend turned out just fine as numerous customers took advantantage of our specials to place orders all the way through Cyber Monday.
Our thanks to all of you who continue to support our efforts as an independent bookseller.
To show our appreciation, we're going to continue the $10 Gift Certificate program for each $100 you spend on orders placed online. See more below.
Our Weekly Special is the latest in a popular cozy series that will appeal to readers with an interest in needlework. Check out This Week's Special and save 20% on a gift for you or someone on your list.
You can earn a $10 Gift Certificate for every $100 you spend on orders placed from now through Christmas Eve. Just place your order during that period, regardless of when it actually ships, and we'll include a $10 Gift Certificate for every $100 you spend. You can send the Gift Certificates to anyone you choose or use them youself on a subsequent order.
Perhaps you didn't know it but at Mystery Lovers Bookshop we're happy to order any book whether it's a mystery or not. You can use our Book Search form or simply send us an email (use our Contact Us or simply reply to this Newsletter) or call 888-800-6078 and tell us what you'd like to have whether for yourself or for a gift. In most cases we can have your book within a week or 10 days.
Would you like to keep a list of books that you'd like to get at a future date? Perhaps a list of books that you'd like to get as gifts during the holidays? Well you can at www.mysterylovers.com.
If your already a registered customer at the site simply log on with your email address and password. Then, when you display any book on the site you can click on the Add to Wish List button instead of the Add to Cart button. You're wish list will stay active and can be viewed anytime you log on to the site. Books can be moved from the Wish List to the Shopping Cart anytime you like. Further details are available on the site help.
The Wish List is also the pefect place to keep track of books being published in the future. If you come across a book by a favorite author but it's not being published for several months, simply put it in your wish list for inclusion in a future order.
Another option is to use the Send to a Friend feature. This section appears at the bottom of each display of an individual book and allows you to email information about that book to anyone you like.
If you're stumped for a gift for someone this year, an MLB Gift Certificate is the perfect answer. Unfortunately, we can't sell you a gift certificate on the web site but we'll be happy to take your order over the phone at 888-800-6078. Gift Certificates are available in any amount and can be paid for with a Visa or Master Card. We can send the Gift Certificate to you or to the recipient as you'd like.
We've put up our Staff Picks for December with a special emphasis on things from the Gift Guide that we're particulary enamored with. Why not take a look at our list and see if there's anything for your list?
Here's what you can find at www.mysterylovers.com:
As you know, we began a campaign last month to reduce the costs and environmental impact of printing and mailing the MLB news. We're continuing to get responses on this campaign and our thanks to those who have participated.

We've received J.K. Rowling's new title The Tales of Beedle the Bard. Still plenty of time to order it in time for Hanukkah or Christmas gift giving. We'll even wrap it for you and include a card.
Although we received Patricia Cornwell's new book, Scarpetta, last week we received the signed copies yesterday.
December New Arrivals are still coming in with new books by Steve Berry, James Grippando, Laura Childs, Miranda Bliss and others.
You'll find the complete list of both US and British books at New Arrivals.
We have signed first editions by several authors either here now or due. If you're interested, please order now as supplies of these are limited. All titles listed are in stock except as noted.
We have a very special evening coming up in February with author T.C. Boyle and we wanted to give our online subscribers a head start on the tickets.
Friday, February 13 T.C. Boyle will give a talk and signing of his new book, The Women, at the Oakmont Carnegie Library at 7 pm. Boyle, the author of ten novels including Road to Wellville and The Inner Circle, is a noted speaker and his subject will be Frank Lloyd Wright. The Women tells the story of Wright's tempestuous life through the perspective of the four women in his life: his three wives and his mistress.
Tickets for T.C. Boyle's talk and signing are $31 and include a copy of the book, The Women. Companion tickets, which do not include the book, are $9 and are only available when purchasing regular tickets.
Give a book this holiday, after all, a scented candle never changed anyone's life.
Richard, Mary Alice and the MLB Staff
