Hey there Star Wars fans! Today is Star Wars Day. Perfect opportunity to showcase some of our awesome Star Wars books/products!
This light hearted book is perfect for any Dad—Star Wars fan or not. A comic about the life of Darth Vader and his difficulties raising a son, Jeffrey Brown explores a different side of the Star Wars world—one I am sure that everyone wishes to see more of. An ideal book to share with your own Dad or child, this is a book that both celebrates Star Wars Day and one that will have a permanent place on your bookshelf.
What better way to celebrate Star Wars Day than with these awesome, fun recipes? It really is a win-win situation: show your love of Star Wars with these adorable cookie cutters AND get a rewarding (and delicious) treat at the end. A perfect activity for both kids and adults to show their Star Wars appreciation, it really doesn’t get any better than this!
Today is probably the only day you can get away with speaking in Wookiee without people shooting you strange looks. If you always wished to learn another language and the real ones just aren’t cutting it (or if you are me they are just too difficult for you) this book provides the perfect opportunity to hone those language skills of yours and put them to good use. Also, the language will come in handy for interpretation purposes during those Star Wars movie marathons, or if you want that added authenticity for your Chewbacca Halloween costume.
If you don’t have the attention span to sit through 4+ hours of Star Wars movies to celebrate Star Wars Day, perhaps you will instead pull out your “Star Wars: The Old Republic” video game and celebrate this culturally produced holiday with your own presence in the Star Wars world. Want to see how it was created? This book delves into the process and provides an inside look into one of our culture’s most beloved franchises. A must buy for any self-professed (or in the closet) Star Wars fan.
HUGE thanks to Melissa our new awesome intern for this blog post! It's her first and certainly not her last!!
We had the pleasure of meeting Eben Weiss (aka BikeSnob USA) last week while he was in Vancouver for his book tour. By 'we' I mean my boyfriend and myself. I had to do it cause it's my job. The BF on the other hand took time off work to tag along for fun. Not that I minded this particular working day because we rode bikes all day and it's our fave thing to do!
For those of you who don't know who Eben Weiss is, he writes the emencely popular blog bikesnousa and wrote a couple of books.
We had met him at his hotel where we all biked over the Caffé Musette for a nice cup of coffee and some snacks while we waited for legendary Amy Walker and her crew to get suited and booted for their Eben interview for bicycle.com.
Essentially they ride around town showing people riding in
real-life situations - on the streets, trails and bike routes of our city from the back of a Yuba Mundo cargo bike. It looks pretty tricky to handle but these two had the down packed.
After a couple hours of riding around beautiful Vancouver (oh and the weather was awesome btw!) we were starved so stopped for few tacos at Taqueria before heading over to Bike Dr. for the group ride.
We ended the night at Chapters where Eben answered questions from the crowd and signed stock. We talked about everything from biking and rainbows to religion and salmoning. (Grab the book, you'll know what I mean after reading it)
Following morning Eben graced our local TV waves at BT. Here's the link.
I'm pleading to get Eben up to Toronto.
I'll keep you all posted on if and when that happens.
Please join Bike Snob NYC (a.k.a. Eben Weiss) and the Bike Doctor for The Enlightened Cyclist Group Ride Thursday, April 12th, 2012 - Starting at Bike Doctor on Broadway at 6:15PM

7PM - Chapters - 2505 Granville Street
Bike Snob NYC (a.k.a. Eben Weiss) is the blogger behind the immensely popular cycling blog, bikesnobnyc.blogspot.com. Join us at Chapters as he signs his new book, The Enlightened Cyclist, and shares his humorous perspective on the joys, trials and triumphs of bike commuting.

When I was asked to list my top books for this season I was at a loss. Working at Raincoast for all these years the seasons seem to mesh together so I thought to let you in on some books that mirror who I am and what I'm about...
My Last Supper by Melanie Dunea. It's a truly awesome coffee table book filled with not only beautiful photographs of some 50 top chefs but includes their recipes as well. Truly, it's a gem. When I blogged about this book this season I had let readers know what my last supper would be.
"I'd like to eat steak, good steak. Ones we bought from the market. Baked potatoes with all the fixings and a yummy beet salad. And chicken wings from grain fed chicken too (hot of course)." You can see by the pic this is exactly what I love to eat when we're camping in the Okanagan so if I would have to choose this would be my 'last supper' as well.
I was lucky enough to attend quite a few hockey games this past year. We were able to go to the Western Conference finals where the Canucks beat out the Sharks. We had a blast. When Portable Press decided to update their Uncle Johns Shoots and Scores, with 70 all new pages I might add, I was quick to take a flip. I'm a bit of a poser when it comes to the game so by reading up I can hang with the boys and show off with som fun hockey facts and stats.
When the sun is shining and I'm in need of getting fresh air what better way to get out and about than riding around town. In my house we love to ride so Cyclepedia made my list. A book for any bike enthusiast.
If you know me, I'm a bit of a cat person. So this is why Meow made it on my list. This book's full of pictures of these adorable creatures with cute captions. Easy. Oh this is Dash -
