LITERARY HARD-ON:

Just got a huge load (phrasing) of award-winning fiction in glorious condition. Give us a few days to price and shelve them, then descend on us like the pack of wolves that you should be.

As a tip – keep an eye on our Twitter-machine. Every book entered into our system pops up there instantaneously, price and all. If you're quick enough and ask us nicely, we'll even put it on 24-hour hold for you at the desk. Just don't leave us hanging.

Ummmm..:

"The green Fence encircles the farm that is surrouded [sic] by flowers and shrubs. The 9+48 [?!?!] year-old oak tree provides shade on hot summer days, and a grill can be arranged in one of the peaceful corners of the garden. The nearby Landscape Park of the Valley offers such attractions as the view point, lime rock cave, and a lane line lined withold [sic] trees and running along a murmuring stream. The Agrotourists Picnic is held in the park on the 3rd of May each year. In September tourists flock to take part in the Prune Holiday, accompanied by making of plum jam in copper cauldrons....

Looks like Dobrcz, Poland is the place to go for your annual Prune Holiday celebrations – murmuring streams and copper cauldrons aplenty! Just not sure that a "palace-cum-park" is the right "environs" for a family weekend..
