Another exciting boat show is behind us! The Toronto International Boat Show ran between January 9th and 17th and was as fun and action packed as any! The boat show always provides such a great opportunity to catch up with old friends, meet interesting customers from far afield, and check out the latest in boat fashion and tech. This year was no exception as we were joined by some of our favourite authors and sailors.
Among others, Ann Vanderhoof, Paul and Sheryl Shard, and Liza Copeland all spent some time at our booth. Ann shared tasty recipes from the Caribbean and autographed copies of her new book, The Spice Necklace. Ann’s previous book, An Embarrassment of Mangoes, is one of our all-time bestsellers. Paul and Sheryl Shard, were reeling with the joy of having just purchased a new boat and gave seminars based on their popular Distant Shores series. Finally, Liza Copeland stopped by to talk about her excellent Just Cruising series of books.
The IMO is also innovating their distribution and pricing models. Each of these titles is available on free (FREE!) CD-ROMs as a “demo”. Once you’ve decided the book a) Works on your computer; b) Is what you’re looking for; & c) Requires purchase for further use, we can get you an activation code. There’s a 50% discount on additional copies (beyond the first one) when ordering two or more activation codes.
It’s all relatively new and exciting. Let us know if you have any questions.
Yes, hello, and welcome to The Nautical Mind Bookstore’s new blog! We’ll use this space to keep in touch with you: boaters, readers, and customers everywhere. We’ll keep you up to date on interesting new books, inform you of our latest bargains, and talk about developments in the boating community. You’ll be able to ask questions, gam with other sailors, tell us what we’re doing right, and let us know where we can improve.
Pictured left is our store front. We’re not just a great website that offers an unparalled selection of boat books, cheap and fast shipping, and courteous service, we’ve also got an actual store, staffed by experienced sailors who’d be happy to swap stories the next time you’re in the neighbourhood.
