CALIFORNIA BOOKSTORE DAY!
Saturday, May 2, 2015
This year, California Bookstore Day has expanded to include independent bookstores nationwide! Last year’s first statewide celebration of independent bookstores was such a success that the event has expanded, growing from 93 stores in California to 350 across the country. Be sure to stop by Walden Pond Books on Saturday, May 2, 2015 to help celebrate what has become National Bookstore Day! On that day - and that day only - you'll find special editions of books, records, and literary merchandise that you won't find any other day of the year. We've also been saving up our choicest inventory for this day! So mark Saturday, May 2 on your calendars - this is going to be a very special day!

WANTS YOU TO KNOW ABOUT:

JUST ANNOUNCED!
April 20, 2015
The winners of the
2015 Pulitzer Prize

All winners in stock!

The winner of the
2014 Man Booker Prize:
THE NARROW ROAD TO THE DEEP NORTH

FINALLY IN PAPERBACK!
"Beware Richard Flanagan’s new novel. His story will draw you away from friends and family into dark contemplation the way only the most extraordinary books can. Nothing since Cormac McCarthy’s The Road has shaken me like this - all the more so because it’s based on recorded history, rather than apocalyptic speculation. Unbearably powerful. This is a classic work of war fiction from a world-class writer." — The Washington Post."

The winner of the
2013 Man Booker Prize:
THE LUMINARIES

FINALLY IN PAPERBACK!
"Sometimes - rarely - a novel arrives that is so good all you can do is shake your head in wonder. Brilliant in design, masterful in execution, and intensely pleasurable to inhabit, The Luminaries is a masterpiece, the work of a writer of apparently limitless range and talent."
