The weekend is the perfect time to curl up on the couch with a cuppa and a good book, watch a movie or leaf through your favourite magazines. From now on dont forget to drop by our Friday Book Nook first. A spot we will use to catch you up on new titles added to YLF Books over the last week, announce any upcoming giveaways, give updates on the YLF Book Group and keep you posted about everything else that is happening in and around the bookstore.
We celebrated the launch of YLF Books in style with some fantastic giveaways last week. No less than fifteen prizes were up for grabs and were chuffed that so many of you entered the competitions. Thank you again for all your support and input! Now le moment suprême has arrived: visit our Competitions section to find out who the lucky winners are! If you are one of them, well be in touch via email.
With the new Personal Stories category, YLF Books is already expanding. In Alligators, Old Mink & New Money, Alison Houtte lets us in on what it is like to run a vintage clothing boutique and shares anecdotes about the never-ending hunt for that one special piece. What would you do if you inherited more than three thousand vintage clothing items that each came with their own story? Charlotte Smith is custodian of The Darnell Collection and writes about it lovingly in Dreaming of Dior: Every Dress Tells a Story.
New in Movies is A Single Man, designer Tom Fords gripping directorial debut with a very strong 1960s aesthetic.
On the forum weve been talking excitedly about starting our own book club. Not surprisingly, we dont just love to read, we also love to chat about it. During YLF Book Group meetings well regularly get together online to talk about interesting fashion reads, discuss our personal favourites, and share thoughts on the titles in the store. Be sure to check in on Wednesday, 26 October, when well put up the schedule with our first titles.
Happy browsing everyone!
