CALLING ALL BOOK CLUBS

Baillie

We get a lot of book clubs coming through the bookstore. (Oftentimes it's a member of a club looking to get to get a book in that they've spun their wheels with at the last minute, but we never judge.) Because we think these tiny communities are so important to the larger cultural community of Guelph, we're looking to shine a bit of light on them. READ MORE


REARVIEW: CADDYSHACK

kane

"Dramatically-speaking, wacky comedies are odd ducks. On the whole, they observe the basic Aristotelian structure of desire, conflict, and resolution, but this observance is often hollow, like grace said habitually by diners who never give God a thought. Was anyone on the edge of their seat when Danny was taking that final putt? Did anyone gasp when Maggie revealed that she may be pregnant? Did we stand up and cheer when the gopher emerged mostly unscathed from Carl's last stand? No. So why have a story if no one's really going to care about the outcome?" READ MORE


REVIEW: AN EMBER IN THE ASHES

kane

"An Ember In The Ashes is an incredible book. I could generally compare it to The Hunger Games by Susan Collins, but comparing these two books would be a little like comparing apples to oranges. They have very different flavors and characteristics, but yes, they are both of the same genre." READ MORE


A SNEAK PREVIEW OF APRIL'S MOVIES

kane

As soon as the new month's calendar comes out, we start getting asked about the next one. At this point, we can't quite reveal the full April program, but we can hip you to a few standouts that we've so far nailed down. But this is all hush-hush still just between you and us.

I CAN HAS WEBSITE?

kane

After years of reading about the Internet in books and newspapers, we decided we'd finally check it out for ourselves. We liked the place so much – though some of its denizens seem really angry about something – that we bought some land, and for a while now we've been building a full-on website.
