We are surrounded by stationery: half-chewed Cristal Bics and bent paper clips, rubber bands to fiddle with or ping, blunt pencils, rubbers and Tipp-ex are integral parts of our everyday environment. So much so that we never think about where they come from, why they are the way they are - or what stories they might have to tell. But luckily, James Ward does and he's here to tell you all about the secret pull stationery exerts on our lives. After all, who remains unmoved by the sight of a pristine blu-tak slab, or the first unmarked sheet of a brand new notepad? And which of humanity's brightest ideas didn't start life on a scrap of paper, a Post-it, or in the margins of a notebook? Exploring the stories behind these everyday objects, Ward reveals tales of invention - accidental and brilliant - and bitter rivalry. He also asks the questions you never thought you had: Who is Mr Pritt? What does shatter-proof resistant mean? How many pens does Argos use? And what does design evolutions in desk organisers mean for society? This witty and entertaining book, packed with fascinating facts, will change the way you look at your desk, pencil case or stationery cupboard forever.

It is a testament to the many designers and who’d rather send a letter than text or email, and to the crafters who prefer to put their thoughts in a journal than post a blog.

The Stationery ShopThe Stationery Shop

The stationery store was 2.7 miles from their house; she knew because she liked to set the odometer to zero sometimes just for kicks. The big-box store was huge and overlit, a warehouse really. Part of a national chain.

ONE OF NPR’S BEST BOOKS OF 2019 From the award-winning author of Together Tea—a debut novel hailed as “compassionate, funny, and wise” by Jill Davis, bestselling author of Girls’ Poker Night—comes a powerful love story exploring loss, reconciliation, and the quirks of fate. Roya is a dreamy, idealistic teenager living in 1953 Tehran who, amidst the political upheaval of the time, finds a literary oasis in kindly Mr. Fakhri’s neighborhood book and stationery shop. She always feels safe in his dusty store, overflowing with fountain pens, shiny ink bottles, and thick pads of soft writing paper. When Mr. Fakhri, with a keen instinct for a budding romance, introduces Roya to his other favorite customer—handsome Bahman, who has a burning passion for justice and a love for Rumi’s poetry—she loses her heart at once. And, as their romance blossoms, the modest little stationery shop remains their favorite place in all of Tehran. A few short months later, on the eve of their marriage, Roya agrees to meet Bahman at the town square, but suddenly, violence erupts—a result of the coup d’etat that forever changes their country’s future. In the chaos, Bahman never shows. For weeks, Roya tries desperately to contact him, but her efforts are fruitless. With a sorrowful heart, she resigns herself to never seeing him again. Until, more than sixty years later, an accident of fate leads her back to Bahman and offers her a chance to ask him the questions that have haunted her for more than half a century: Why did he leave? Where did he go? How was he able to forget her? The Stationery Shop is a beautiful and timely exploration of devastating loss, unbreakable family bonds, and the overwhelming power of love.

The City of Brotherly Love is no stranger to murder and mayhem in these three Philadelphia mysteries featuring an English teacher turned private eye. Helen Hath No Fury The discussions in Amanda Pepper’s book club can sometimes get heated, but have they become deadly? The day after an argument over a fictional heroine’s suicide, book group member Helen Coulter falls to her death from her roof garden. Though Helen’s demise is declared a suicide, Amanda is convinced otherwise. But as she separates truth from fiction, Amanda risks facing a real-life killer. Claire and Present Danger English teacher Amanda Pepper now moonlights as a PI with former detective C.K. Mackenzie. The wealthy matron Claire Fairchild has hired them to investigate Emmie Cade, the charming but evasive young woman who is suddenly engaged to Claire’s middle-aged son. At thirty-two, Emmie has changed her name more often than some women change nail polish—and Claire has received anonymous letters about the men in Emmie’s life coming to violent ends. But Amanda’s scouring of Emmie’s past gets interrupted by a very present murder. Till the End of Tom After finding Tom Severin dying from a fall outside her Philadelphia prep school, Amanda Pepper and her fiancé, C.K. Mackenzie, are hired by his family to find out what happened. They soon discover that Tom leaves behind more than a few people who would be better off with him gone—including angry ex-wives, one recently dropped fiancée, and the current (about to be former) Mrs. Tomas Severin. As secrets are unearthed, it’s apparent that the end of Tom is just the beginning of the grief he caused.
