The Latest News from Blydyn Square Books
Thanksgiving is on the way, so this month, we thought it was about time for us here at Blydyn Square Books to thank you, our readers, for all the support you’ve shown over the years.
It’s not easy staying in business in the publishing world these days, especially for a tiny press like us, but (thanks to you) we’ve managed to do it for over seven and a half years—so far!
To thank you for helping us stay the course, this month, we’re going to have a special second raffle (in addition to our usual trivia contest, which still appears below). Anyone who sends us a message—through email (firstname.lastname@example.org), social media, or on our website—and just says “You’re welcome” will be entered into the drawing. (And yes, you can still win the trivia contest, so don’t forget to send us your answer there, too!)
Happy Thanksgiving, and thanks again for all your support. We look forward to many more years of bringing you the very best books in the world!

Quote of the Month
“When we don’t read, we become weak—easy to manipulate, less than what we are capable of being. It’s in our self-interest to read. . . . It’s also our moral duty.”
Brain Teaser of the Month
Congratulations to Jessica Reed, who won an Amazon gift card in last month’s trivia contest. The question was:
Since we talked a little about Salem this month, who was the first person executed for witchcraft during the Salem witch trials of 1692?
The answer: Bridget Bishop
Now answer this:
Where did November get its name?
Send us your answer (email@example.com) and you’ll be entered in our prize drawing.
That’s it for this month. See you next time!
