Events at Blue Marble Books, Fort Thomas, KY

Blue Marble Books is part of the FTM Family.

It's fall, and we have a large selection of both Halloween and fall-related books.  These seasonal books are displayed in the front of the store, as well as, an even larger display in our Great Green Room.  They make great reading for celebrating the season.

Teen Read Week (in conjunction with Campbell County Libraries) is Oct 18-24.  Teens ages 12-19 who read and complete a line on a Bingo card which they can pick up at their local library starting on Oct 1, get a free paperback book from our Teen Room.  In addition, during teen week anyone can Buy One Get One Free from the Teen Room (equal or lesser value).  We will also have a drawing for teens to enter and win a $50 gift certificate from Blue Marble Books.


And, don't miss our great window display which features the recreation of the front cover of the popular picture book Waiting by Kevin Henkes [Greenwillow Books, $18.89, hc].  Each character in the display has been designed and handcrafted out of fabric by our talented co-worker Holly.  It looks amazing!

If you are looking for a gift, but are not sure what the recipient has read or might like to read, we offer Blue Marble gift certificates.
