There's no better time of year than now for NPOB to celebrate one of our favorite Themes, Americana. With the Fourth just around the corner, our thoughts to turn our wonderful country and fascinating history, all of which makes a terrific backdrop for a delightful romance and mystery.
Our country is so unique in so many ways, with our spirit of independence, courage, and the pursuit of the "American" dream. Americana romances embrace this heritage by bringing to life all the best about America -- the friendliness of small towns and the excitement of the "big city," the town meetings where every voice can be heard and the generous spirit where neighbors help neighbors.
Americana recalls the courage of past heroes and heroines who risked their lives to help those who couldn't help themselves and the sacrifices of ordinary men and women to defend our liberties and freedoms. They also bring to mind gentler, simpler times, when the local shopkeepers knew your name and the county fair was the year's most anticipated event, when summer evenings found neighbors gathering in the local park to hear a small brass band play music from the confines of an elegant white gazebo and when having a scoop of ice cream or slice of watermelon was a once or twice a year treat.
There's so much to celebrate about America, and NewAndUsedBooks.com is here to help you do it! So start your summer off with a "bang" and stock up now on our fantastic selection of Americana, which highlights a wide variety of time periods from our country's fascinating history.
