Who is Krampus?



About Krampus


Who is a Krampus? Krampus is a creature from Germanic myth. His name comes from the German word "krampen" which means "claw."

He is described as being half-goat and half-man and hairy all over. He wears a chain and carries a bundle of birch sticks to hit naughty children.

He arrives before Santa Claus on a night all his own. He shows up on Krampus Night, or Krampusnacht. Children leave their shoes out, and if they find a gift, they have been good, but if they find a birch rod, they've been naughty.

Some say Krampus is misunderstood and that he works alongside Santa to ensure good prevails. Some tales says he drags naughty children away, never to be seen again. Is Krampus real? Become a reading ninja and decide for yourself.

You can read about Totally Ninja Raccoons meeting Krampus in The Totally Ninja Raccoons and the Catmas Caper available now. Just click on Krampus to be taken to From My Shelf Books & Gifts where you can buy a signed copy.

Naughty or Nice?



Have you been naughty or nice in 2018? I think we all know the answer to that question. Face it. The fat man in red is NOT bringing you any thing this Christmas season. You might as well makes nice with the competition, Krampus. You can meet him at From My Shelf Books & Gifts December 8th 2016 from 11AM to 2PM

Krampus is visiting From My Shelf Books after his European tour. He'll be staying at Wellsboro's Penn Wells Hotel . He's gracious enough to stop by the bookstore, sign a few autographs, talk about his role in The Catmas Caper, and do some photo ops for those that are naughty or nice.

Krampus is shown along with Bill Colson holding bookstore cat, Finn

Who is Krampus you say? Saint Nicholas may reward the nice children with gifts, but it is Krampus, a creature from Germanic folklore, that punishes the naughty ones. It is said that if you are particularly naughty, he throws you in his sack and carries you to his lair.

Krampus is celebrated on Krampusnact, which takes place December 5th, the eve of Saint Nicholas Day. In Austria, celebrants masquerade as hairy devils and dance, drink, and run through the streets through the streets terrifying children and adults.

In modern times, Saint Nicholas has upgraded his image. He’s dropped the bishop garb and added a red suit. He’s traded his horse and staff for a sleigh and reindeer, moved the date to Christmas Eve, and got rid of the competition. He’s banished Krampus and stolen his magic. Santa thought he could punish the naughty, but children have lost all fear of Santa and his lumps of coal.

It’s time for Krampus to take back what is his, to take back Yuletide. You can be part of the movement at From My Shelf Books December 8 from 11AM to 2PM. Be there, or Krampus will visit you at a time rather less convenient for you..

Small Business Saturday



Small Business Saturday is November 24th. Heard of it? It's a new shopping holiday created by a big business [American Express] that's supposed to focus on small business. See, Black Friday is all about the super deals and camping out at big box stores. Cyber Monday is all about shopping at home in your underwear. Small Business Saturday is supposed to focus on the little guy. That's nice, I guess.

I want to remind you, that at From My Shelf Books, we're here every day, not just during the mad rush of the holiday season. We'll help you find the perfect Christmas book for your 7 year old grandson, but we're here for his birthday in August too, or for that baby shower gift in May.

I could go over all the reasons to buy local. Money spent locally stays local. You help shape the character of your town. A small business is run by real people, with personality. People you know. Small businesses add flavor to a town, and you know that's more attractive than vacant stores.

I could tell you that it lowers your taxes. Local businesses generate more tax revenue per sales dollar, and the more local business, the lower your taxes will be. This has a multiplier effect and impact on local organization and residents.

Local business creates local jobs and opportunites. Independent businesses not only employ local people, but are the customers of local printers, accountants, craftsman, etc., and expand opportunities for more local entrepreneurs.

We live here, so we care about here. Small business donates twice as much per sales dollar to local non-profits and events compared to big business. We care about that road project, or if a local bridge gets fixed.

So, this Small Business Saturday, come visit us and see why we do what we do, but don't forget us the rest of the year, and we won't forget that you already bought that book for your daughter, or that that you always want the new Lee Child book. Don't forget small business doesn't run one day a year.

Catmas is coming, and you can give the gift of a signed and personalized book at From My Shelf Bookss & Gifts. It’s a great way to get a unique gift for someone you love (even yourself!) while at the same time supporting a fabulous local business that does a fantastic job in its community.

So: How do you get signed and personalized books from me? It’s simple:

1. Call From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 570-724-5793 and let them know you’d like to order signed copies of my books. Please call rather than send e-mail; it's easier to keep track of things that way.

2. Tell them which books you would like, and what, if any, names you would like the book signed to. If there’s something specific you’d like written in the books let them know but for their sake and mine, please keep it short. Also, if you’re ordering the book as a gift, make sure you’re clear about whose name the book is being signed to. If this is unclear, I will avoid using a specific name.

3. Order any other books you might think you’d like, written by other people, because hey, you've already called a bookstore for books, and helping local independent bookstores is a good thing.

4. Give them your mailing address and billing information, etc.

5. And that’s it! Shortly thereafter I will sign your books for you.

If you want the books shipped for Christmas, the deadline for that is December 15 That way we can make sure everything ships to you on time.

Ordering early is encouraged — it makes sure we will absolutely be able to order your book and have it to you on time.

P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever



Turning the traditional idea of an alphabet book on its head, P is for Pterodactyl is meant for anyone who has ever been stumped by silent letters or confused by homophones. It takes silent letter entries like "K is for Knight" a step further with "The noble knight's knife nicked the knave's knee." Illustrations provide context clues, and alliterative words help readers navigate text like "A bright white gnat is gnawing on my gnocchi."

Forest Life: Practical Meditations on Canoeing, Fishing, Hunting, and Bushcraft



Forest Life collects George Washington Sears' timeless writing about the joys of exploring the wilderness, edited for a modern audience. In text both practical and inspirational, Sears' provides enduring wisdom about trips into the woods and lakes, including equipment, campfires, fishing, camp cooking, traveling light, and canoes.

The original "forest bather," Sears wanted others to enjoy the woods as he did. His published Woodcraft in 1884 to help prepare skillful, self-reliant woodsman and to extol the restorative power of nature, writing "There are men who, on finding themselves alone in a pathless forest, become appalled, almost panic stricken. . . And there be some who plunge into an unbroken forest with a feeling of fresh, free, invigorating delight, as they might dash into a crisp ocean surf on a hot day." In addition to Woodcraft, Forest Life contains many of his articles from Forest and Stream, as well as his nature poetry.

Sears is especially eloquent about canoing, which he helped popularize with published tales of his adventures. In 1883, when he was 61 years old and suffering from tuberculosis, he used a 9-foot, 10-1/2 pound canoe to travel 266 miles through the Adirondacks, writing, "The easy, gentle rocking of the canoe was the best incentive to drowsiness I ever found, and by night or day was nearly certain to send me into dreamland. A score of times I have gone to sleep drifting on deep, wide water, to be awakened by the pressing and bumping of the little craft among the dead balsams and spruces that make [up] half the shorelines of all the lakes in the North Woods."

This two-color gift book, illustrated with period etchings of scenes, people, flora, and fauna of the Adirondacks, is the perfect gift book for the outdoor enthusiast. This handsome, affordable collection will be especially appealing to the millions who canoe, camp, and fish.

Born in 1821, George Washington Sears is renowned for his writing for Forest and Stream magazine, as well as publishing the classic camping guide Woodcraft in 1884 and his poetry collection Forest Runes in 1887. Writing under the pen name "Nessmuk," he helped popularize canoing, camping, and wilderness conservation, notably in the Adirondacks. He worked with pioneering boat builder J. Henry Rushton to create one of the first lightweight and affordable canoes, succeeding to such a degree that his boat Sairy Gamp was a featured exhibition at the Smithsonian. Upon his death, both a lake and a mountain in Pennsylvania were named in his honor.

Molly, the Dog with Diabetes by Kevin Coolidge has been Story Monster Approved!



Molly, the Dog with Diabetes by Kevin Coolidge has been Story Monster Approved! The colorful, kid-friendly Story Monsters Approved seal attracts the attention of young readers much more than a sticker intended for adult scrutiny. Kids know when they see the Story Monsters Approved patch it means children their own age enjoyed the book and are recommending they read it, too.

How do they know that? Because after books pass the first round of rigorous judging – which is done by industry experts, the books are then judged by a panel of youth judges who must also endorse the books before they can receive the official seal of approval.

“Who better to judge children’s books than the children who read them?” explains Linda F. Radke, president of Story Monsters LLC., the same company that sponsors the Dragonfly Book Awards program. “Judging these books gives children a wonderful sense of importance and responsibility.”

Molly, the Dog with Diabetes is a true story about a dachshund mix dog, and her journey with diabetes. Molly's story is not only a dog story--and who doesn't love a dog story?--but the story of living a happy and healthy life with diabetes.

Kevin Coolidge is also the author of the Totally Ninja Raccoons a new children's series for 2nd to 4th grade. It is specifically geared toward reluctant readers. The series is set in Tioga County and Wellsboro with eight books published and more to come,"

You can purchase signed and personalized copies of Molly, the Dog with Diabetes at From My Shelf Books in Wellsboro. You can purchase them online at www.wellsborobookstore.com, or wherever books are sold.

Perseid Meteor Shower


The Perseid meteor shower happens every August. The shower occurs in the Northern Hemisphere from July 23 through August 23. The date of maximum visibility is usually August 11 to the 13th. The Perseids are named after the constellation of Perseus. You might see up to 100 meteors per hour.

The Perseids are pea sized bits of rocky debris that come from the comet Swift-Tuttle. The comet is slowly falling apart as it orbits our sun. The Earth's path around the Sun carries us through this comet debris every mid-August.

The particles are called metoroids. When one of these metoroids hits the Earth's atompshere, it creates a white-hot streak of air and creates a meteor, also known as a falling star. Almost none hit the ground, but if one does, it is called a meteorite.

KEVIN COOLIDGE RELEASES TWO NEW BOOKS IN HIS TOTALLY NINJA RACCOON SERIES



The eighth book in Kevin Coolidge's "Totally Ninja Raccoon" series for second to fourth graders who are reluctant readers is now available at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro. It was published on July 6th 2018.

"The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet the Jersey Devil" takes place in Tioga County on the Pine Creek Rail Trail. The raccoons learn tracking skills, and meet a creature from New Jersey folklore, the Jersey Devil.

The first six books are set in Wellsboro and Tioga County, Pa. Coolidge began his series with “The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet Bigfoot,” released on Dec. 11, 2015. It is about three raccoon brothers who become ninjas. “This series is for the 7 to 10-year-old reluctant reader who loves action, adventure and creatures whose existence has yet to be proven, like Bigfoot,” said Coolidge.

In each book, the ninja raccoons learn important life lessons. In the first, the raccoons discover they are not meant to be ordinary bandits, but rather have the potential to be something extraordinary--ninjas. They begin their ninja training and meet their first potential employer--Gypsy the Cat who sends them on their first mission, to capture the elusive Bigfoot. During their adventures, the raccoon brothers learn the importance of choosing their own path.

In the second book, the raccoons meet the “Weird & Wacky Werewolf;” in the third, they learn “The Secret of the Canyon,” in the fourth, meet “The Thunderbird,” in the fifth are involved in “The Catmas Caper” and in the sixth, learn the “Secret of Nessmuk Lake." The next four books were released between March 1 and Oct. 26, 2016 and the sixth on May 2 of 2017.

The seventh book in the series, "The Totally Ninja Raccoons Meet the Little Green Men,” takes place at Cherry Springs State Park, near Galeton in Potter County during the Perseid Meteor Shower in August. It was released in October of 2017. As the raccoon brothers continue their ninja training, they learn the power of forgiveness, and meet creatures from out of this world - aliens. The Cat Board plots against the raccoons as they explore the park. Will the cats trash the raccoons? Will the little green men find the perfect pet? Will Rascal make French toast?

During the day, Coolidge can be found at From My Shelf Books & Gifts, an independent bookstore he runs with his wife, several helpful employees, and two friendly black and white cats, Huck and Finn. He is there after hours, too, writing. Coolidge is working on his ninth Totally Ninja Raccoons book now.

Signed, personalized copies of all books in the series are available at From My Shelf Books & Gifts in Wellsboro. For more information about this series, call 570-724-5793.

"MOLLY, THE DOG WITH DIABETES" BOOK RELEASE PARTY IS AUG. 3



Stop in to meet Sue Powers and Molly at the August 3 book release party.

From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 3, Wellsboro’s First Friday, a book release party for “Molly, The Dog with Diabetes" is being held at From My Shelf Books & Gifts at 7 East Avenue in Wellsboro.

Written by Kevin Coolidge, this book is for children and their families. Those who attend will be able to meet Molly, the star of the new book and her human, Sue Powers, who suggested the idea to Coolidge. Powers and Coolidge both reside in Wellsboro and are neighbors.

Molly, a seven-year-old dachshund mix, was diagnosed with diabetes four years ago at Christmastime.

“I felt that writing about what a dog with diabetes goes through would show children they can live a normal life if they take care of themselves,” Powers said. “Kevin and I began chatting about the parallels between diabetic dogs and people. I told him that Molly goes on vacation with us and has children and dogs that come to play with her. He talked about ideas he had. We both began to get really excited about this book," said Powers.

“It’s a feel good book about how happy and healthy Molly is as she lives with diabetes," said Coolidge.

For more information about this book or the party, call the bookstore at 570-724-5793.

On July 1, 2018, Waldo-spotters will set off on a hunt to find the elusive character hidden around dozens of downtown businesses in Wellsboro. Anyone who wishes to participate can pick up a Find Waldo passport at a participating business and collect a store stamp or signature for each Waldo they spot. Hundreds of Waldo spotters will be eligible for prizes.
