Our eBooks will work on just about anything – iPads, iPhones, Nooks, Sony eReaders, and the list goes on (except for Kindles, which are, of course, proprietary). We also have a selection of our hand-picked gifts, games, toys and cards for your perusal.

Speaking of the holiday shopping season, I'd like to give you even more reason to check out the new site: Friday, November 25th ONLY, take 25% off your entire ONLINE order* - just type the phrase "BLACKFRIDAY" in the order comments box as you check out. It's a great time to finish off that Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Late Birthday shopping and save!
