Special Midnight Release for Jordan/Sanderson's MEMORY OF LIGHT

Main Street will open at 12:01am Tuesday January 8th for the Vancouver release of Robert Jordan and Brandon Sanderson's A Memory of Light.  You'll receive your book earlier than you will if ordering from some gargantuan e-mall bazaar, you'll be able to personally inspect the condition of your copy, maybe enjoy some donuts and/or scotch, yak with our friendly staff, and enjoy a competitive discount from the book's Canadian cover price.

These midnight launches are a lot of fun; we had c. 75 people show up for the midnight launch of Martin's Dance of Dragons, many liquored up, most in costume.
