Dear Friends and Neighbors of Bookshop West Portal,

Now that the school year has begun, we have a few special offers to share with you:

Dog DaysWe are pleased to announce that Diary of a Wimpy Kid #04 (Dog Days), Jeff Kinney's latest novel in his blockbuster New York Times-bestselling series, arrives in our store on October 12th. Reserve your copy now (with prepayment) and you will receive 20% off the cover price.

Dog Days continues the trials and tribulations of Greg Heffley, a self-confessed "indoor person," who is living out his ultimate summer fantasy: no responsibilities and no rules. But his mom has different ideas, which include a multitude of outdoor activities and family time. Whose vision will win out? Or will a new addition to the Heffley family change everything?

Reserve your copy now, and you will soon find out!

Moleskine datebooks are in stock! All Moleskine datebooks and journals will be discounted 20% as part of our Buyers' Choice selections, while supplies last.

ZeitounWe now have autographed copies of Zeitoun, Dave Eggers' gripping and amazing story about the disappearance of a man out helping his neighbors during the New Orleans floods. Eggers spent three years researching and writing his riveting nonfiction book,  exploring Abdulrahman Zeitoun's roots in Syria, his marriage to Kathy - an American who converted to Islam - and their children, as well as the surreal atmosphere (in New Orleans and the United States generally) in which what happened to Zeitoun was possible.

"This is a beautiful book...a poignant, haunting, ethereal story about New Orleans in peril. Eggers has bottled up the feeling of post-Katrina despair better than anyone else. This is a simple story with a lingering radiance. My admiration for the humanist spirit of Eggers knows no bounds." - Douglas Brinkley, author of The Great Deluge: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast
