Chapters Indigo Fall Gift Guide & Giveaway

Comments 202 by Rebecca Bollwitt

It’s time for students of all ages to return to school to begin another year of academic growth. I always enjoyed back to school shopping even though it meant we were that much closer to returning to class. Highlighters, binders, duo-tangs, pencil crayons, Trapper Keepers and geometry kits (always a new geometry kit even though kits from previous years were barely used). Fall also means snuggling up with a blanket and a good book while multicoloured leaves float to the ground outside your window.

Chapters Indigo recently released their Fall Gift Guide that includes Notable Books for Fall like Neil Young’s Waging Heavy Peace, and J.K. Rowling’s Casual Vacancy. For business-minded readers they have a Dragons’ Den Collection, and for the home chef there’s a collection of farm-to-table and comfort food reads like A Country Cook’s Kitchen and The Best Soups in the World.

They have also stocked up on lifestyle items, games, home accessories, journals, and everything that compliments a good book in your home. Tea pots, throw pillows, candles, headphones, radios, party supplies and gadgets. These items are available at Chapters Indigo locations throughout Canada (including Robson/Howe, and Broadway/Granville) and online.

To celebrate their new fall items, Chapters Indigo has put together a prize pack for a lucky Miss604 reader. This includes: Play Video Memo Pad, Water-Powered Clock, Magic Bonasi Tree, Apples to Apples Junior, Tea Forte World of Teas, Alphabet Journal, Spot it!

    I loved reading “The Help” and I highly recommend it 🙂

  2. LexieWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 2:46pm PST

    Wicked, by Gregory Maguire is a fantastic read (all of his books are, really).

  3. ChristinaWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 2:46pm PST

    Everyone should read The Golden Spruce if you’re at all interested in the north west coast!

  4. Lelainia LloydWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 2:47pm PST

    Currently, I am reading The Third Man Factor” by John Geigor. It’s fascinating. If you like extreme sport, this is a book about the experiences people have had during life & death situations in extreme sports (mountaineering, caving, etc.) where they’ve sensed or experienced there’s a prescence or “third man” that helped them survive.

  5. lucWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 2:47pm PST

    Game of Thrones series, of course!

  6. Adina H.Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:00pm PST

  7. lizWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:17pm PST

    The Life of Pi is an excellent easy read and soon to be a movie.

  8. GenWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:21pm PST

    Life of Pi!

  10. KarenWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:38pm PST

    I did love “Water for Elephants”. All the fun of running away with the circus and none of the poop! And you get points for Canadian content!

  11. ErinWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:40pm PST

    I loved the Night Circus…quite surprisingly!

  12. LloydWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 3:47pm PST

    IT by stephen king… what a creepy book

  14. CarlosWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 4:09pm PST

    Germs, Guns, & Steel by Jarod Diamond. Great history read of the evolution of man, and the historical, cultural, environmental reasons behind European dominance of the world in the medieval ages.

  15. LeahWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 4:28pm PST

    Everyone should read An Awesome Book by Dallas Clayton.

  16. JeffWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 4:49pm PST

    I really enjoyed “The science of Leonardo” by Fritjof Capra. Interesting what Leonardo Da Vinci invented in his time. most of it remained hidden in his notes though.

  17. RachelWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 6:01pm PST

    The Magicians by Lev Grossman!

  18. Emilia TurnerWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 6:15pm PST

  19. NancyWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 6:23pm PST

  33. PaolaWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 9:27pm PST

    “Brain Rules” by John Medina – accessible and your brain really does like to read about itself.

  34. Leanne MWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 9:50pm PST

    I liked the Hunger Games trilogy

    At the Back of the North Wind, by George Macdonald

  40. AlexWednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 11:05pm PST

    Everyone knows about it but I still want to say it. “50 Shades of Grey”, it’s a good read for not only women but couples. Spice up the love life quite a bit.

  41. nance428Wednesday, August 29th, 2012 — 11:19pm PST

    Superfudge by Judy Blume, is my all time favourite book.

  46. MaureenThursday, August 30th, 2012 — 6:18am PST

    Not too many kids’ books posted yet. I choose Wonder by R. J. Palacio? Wonder is about a boy with a disfigurement who attends school (5th grade) for the first time. I think the book has Newberry potential. Story is told through various points of view that all cleverly weave together.

  47. belindaThursday, August 30th, 2012 — 7:22am PST

    What I wish I knew when I was 21 is a lovely book. Inspiring as well.

  48. Georgina BThursday, August 30th, 2012 — 7:25am PST

    Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake is an awesome blend of not-so-far-fetched science (she based most of it on current research) and apocalyptic goodness. Also – 7 habits of highly effective people is pretty much a game changer. One of the only books I’ve ever wanted to read more than once.

  171. JonathanTuesday, September 4th, 2012 — 12:39pm PST

    I would highly recommend everyone should read is “How To Win Friends and Influence People in the Digital Age”.

    In this Information Age that we live in – where email, blogs, social media platforms have created instant and ever-increasing amounts of data, information, and communications – Dale Carnegie’s simple, common-sense principles and ideas are timeless and are needed more than ever… to be ignorant of these principles could lead to negative and long-lasting consequences in how others relate and perceive you.

    To Kill a Mockingbird is still the greatest book I’ve ever read – love the lessons you learn and the way the characters have withstood the test of time – Who didn’t want to be Scout and who hasn’t had a Boo Radley they misunderstood in life?

  198. Andrea B.Wednesday, September 5th, 2012 — 11:57am PST
