November 2019

What a fabulous selection of books this month!
Have a look especially in the Children’s Books, Militaria, and Stationery sections. It will be so easy to choose some Christmas (which is definitely in the air) books to squirrel away for your nearest and dearest to open on 25th December.
As usual, on Melbourne Cup day we are closing at noon. It has been our habit for the past 39 years to celebrate  the founding of Clouston and Hall Booksellers, home of Academic Remainders on this happy day. We will have a nice lunch, a flutter on the neddies, and raise a glass to our founder, the late, great, Brian Clouston.
Many of you have enjoyed purchasing the Advent Calendar of books we have offered in the past. Due to many hopeful enquiries we have decided to offer it again this year. Just tell us the age and sex of the child you are ordering for and we will do the rest. We wrap each of the 24 books individually and label them as well. We have been told that this is The Best Advent Calendar Ever. You need to order this month of course, so that the  child/children can begin opening their treasures on December 1st. The price for this lovely gift is a very reasonable $124.95.
Here in Canberra November is a good month for gardening and the Clouston patch is being seriously attended to so that the large number of people we are entertaining on Christmas Day will enjoy the surroundings. ...which they probably won't notice once Tom starts to pour the Pimms.
