Chills and Thrills

Chills and Thrills

Didn’t get quite enough Halloween last Sunday? Luckily, the horror can continue all year in Vroman’s Land! (Hmm, that doesn’t have quite the same ring as Halloween Town…) Anyway, our bookseller Amber, cashier/horror guru extraordinaire, has some great recommendations to keep you freaked out all year long! Need some new recommendations? Lucky for you, I’ve [...]

Vroman’s Favorites

Sometimes, an author stands out as to bookstore staff as not just an incredible writer, but an incredible person. Our President, Allison, had a few words to say about one of them: Michael Cunningham, who signed his new book at the store yesterday night. But I’ll let her speak for herself: I love my job: [...]

If You’re Not Yet Like Me

If You’re Not Yet Like Me

Those of you who have been following the blog for a while know lots about Edan Lepucki, author, millions contributor, and our previous blogger Patrick’s wife. Exciting news for her (and us): her first book has been published! If You’re Not Yet Like Me is in its very limited first run, so if you want [...]

Librairie Nike

Amsterdam, London… now on to Paris! Here I stayed with a couple of family friends, Susan and Bruno, and they happily pointed me in the right direction to find books, bookstores, and book-related fun. I also had two books to purchase in France – a friend wanted a copy of Gossip Girl in French, to [...]

London’s Smallest Bookstore

London’s Smallest Bookstore

Last week we visited the Amsterdam book scene. Today, it’s London! The land of castles, churches, and huge upright rocks (among other things) did not disappoint where books are concerned. Bookstores were a little thinner on the ground, but since I was in pretty touristy areas, this does not surprise me. I did find this [...]

Long time, no see. Why, you ask? Oh, you know, I’ve just been exploring the world. Well, not quite the world, but Europe, at least. But I didn’t forget the blog while I was away! Instead, I searched out bookstores in each of the cities I visited, and explored a little of bookish culture across [...]

Still Thirsty

Still Thirsty

Last Friday’s Slake event was absolutely amazing. I’m still kind of having a hard time explaining how cool it was to be in a room filled to the brim with people who think print isn’t dead or dying, but rather vital, evolving, and downright important. Not only that, but every single person there was supporting [...]

Musical Awesome x2: It’s an Awesome Thing.

Musical Awesome x2: It’s an Awesome Thing.

I post the It’s an Awesome Thing series whenever I run across something particularly awesome in the store. It may include books, gift items, stationery items, etc., but they will all tend towards the quirky, cool, and just plain strange. It could happen daily, monthly, or never again, but then again, we have so many [...]

Slake: Excerpts II

Slake: Excerpts II

Today, the Vroman’s blog presents the last installment of the Slake Magazine blog series! Wednesday, we had an interview with Joseph; yesterday and today, excerpts from the first edition. Be prepared: these are not your average, tame paragraphs. Jervey Tervalon was awarded a key to the city of New Orleans for his best-selling novel Dead [...]
