The New Doctor Lands 23 August

And we couldn’t be happier! Here are a few recommendations to whet your appetite for the new season of Doctor Who (the greatest show in the universe).

time of the doctor

Watch the Eleventh Doctor’s final episode…cry as he realizes his time has come, gasp at the surprise visit from an old friend, clap your hands as he regenerates into–a wild-eyed Scot!?


This biopic tells the story of the little TV show that could.  From the young, untested production team to the rickety sets, Doctor Who was a sure-miss. And yet…

An Adventure in Space and Time–nominated for a Hugo award, although it lost to Game of Thrones “Rains of Castamere”–is funny, smart, and very, very moving.

Feeling ambitious (and a little flush)? This boxed set contains the first seven seasons of New Who, plus a sonic screwdriver.

And don’t forget to join us for our celebration on August 23rd at 1 p.m. It’s going to be out of this world!



July is a great month for books–check out our new releases tab for (just a smattering of) the latest recent and upcoming titles.

caged bird

The Book Frog joins the world in bidding farewell to a woman who lived life to the fullest–and in the process gave back countless gifts. Maya Angelou–poet, memoirist, novelist, activist, actor, singer–died today at the age of 86.  Though she will be missed, her great works live on.


Whether they’re heading off to college in the fall or heading out into the world, these gifts from the Unemployed Philosophers Guild will make them think of you–and smile–every day.
