With the closing of schools and libraries, we felt a responsibility to step up and offer creative options for readers. Call us at (248) 968-1190, and talk to a real live bookseller who can take an order, suggest titles and answer questions.
You may also send your order requests to our new mail-order address:BookBeatOrders@gmail.com . Please include the book’s ISBN number (if you know it), the author’s name, and your name and phone number. We will call or write you back ASAP and try to get you the titles you need quickly.
We can mail out orders within the USA for $3 a box, a special offer good until April 14. If you are local, you may pick up your order curbside at the store. Just call us when you arrive, anytime during our new store hours; Mon-Sat 10 AM – 5 PM, or make arrangements with us by phone.
Here are some recent catalogs to help guide your child’s edification, interests, hobbies and enjoyment:
A recent Forbes Magazine article commented on the 300 million children mow being homeschooled; “Education without schooling is not a crisis but an opportunity.” We are trying to view this predicament in the same way — an opportunity to refine our online presence, and look at the books we buy in a closer, less commercial and more personal way –to reflect on what is essential, and allow great books to transform our lives. Rather than stopping book clubs, this may be the beginning of an online golden age of reading groups and sharing our thoughts with others.
Pictured above: a new springtime release Grandma’s Gardens, by Hillary and Chelsea Clinton. Autographed copies are now available for a limited time; $18.99 in hardcover, please call or e-mail to reserve a copy at the store.
At Book Beat we specialize in children’s books, and can give expert care and advice to those facing educational or homeschooling challenges. Before you go to Amazon, think about your community first. We are here and want to be here for you, now and in the furure.
