Book Notes:  The Parish Book Store is partnering with Dos Santos again this summer to provide bi-lingual books for the Latino community on the Eastern Shore.  Stop by the store and choose a book (or books) from our bi-lingual selection.  We will deliver the books in August.  Last year's response was very generous and most appreciated.

     The Parish Book Store Book Group's next selection is The Alchemist by Paulo Coehlo.  Order your book from the Book Store and start reading!  We will meet in July (maybe under the trees and with lemonade) to discuss it.
