Author Interview: Ciara Geraghty

Lifesaving for Beginners is the fantastic new novel by Irish bestselling author Ciara Geraghty - a bittersweet, quirky tale about letting love in, and learning to live. Ciara lives in Dublin with her husband, three children and a dog. She popped into Shearer's during her Australian tour to chat with Megan.

Our Moving Sales Begin!

You may or may not know that the Norton Street Palace Cinema will be undergoing a major renovation starting at the beginning of April and will close throughout construction. Sadly this means that Shearer's will also be temporarily relocating from 99 Norton Street to MarketPlace Leichhardt in April 2013.

Our customers are extremely important to us and we want you to know that even though we need to move to a new shop in the interim, Shearer's will always be Shearer's! We'll still have the same great customer service, the same staff, and the same love of books. We really appreciate all your loyal support over the years and hope you'll come and visit us in our temporary new home.
And MarketPlace Leichhardt is only 850 metres away from 99 Norton Street!

850m is only:
- a 2 minute drive
- a 3 minute cycle
- a 5 minute bus trip
- or a 10 minute walk.

 And it only takes 2 minutes to read a page of a novel!
In 3 minutes you could read 1.5 pages,
In 5 minutes you could read 3.5 pages,
And in 10 minutes you could read a short chapter - but watch crossing the intersections if you're reading and walking at the same time!

Speaking of novels, each week until the move we'll be holding a weekly departmental sale - and this week our first sale will be
20% off all Fiction!
This includes all Fiction, Australian Fiction, Crime, and Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Graphic Novels.

You can receive 20% off all fiction titles for 3 days only on
Friday February 15th
Saturday February 16th
 and Sunday February 17th.
If you have any questions about which books are on sale, please speak to our friendly staff who will be happy to help you out.

Our 20% off Fiction sale excludes children's fiction (kids will have their own special promotion coming up soon!). No rainchecks, no rewards, only valid on those 3 days. Unfortunately we're sure you'll understand that Frequent Shoppers won't be able to use their reward vouchers for the 20% off Fiction sale. Gift vouchers are able to be redeemed.

Coffee and Cake Special at Froth Café

During our 20% off Fiction sale, Froth Café are also offering a special coffee and cake promotion! If you buy any fiction title on sale at Shearer's between February 15th and 17th, just show your receipt to the staff at Froth Cafe and for only $6.50 you'll get a regular coffee and any cake (some exclusions may apply, please see their lovely staff for details). Book purchase must be the same day as coffee and cake purchase to be eligible.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day from everyone at Shearer's.
