Cathy's Picks


I'm Cathy Fiebach owner of Main Point Books. I opened the store in 2013 because I couldn't live somewhere without a bookstore and starting a business made more sense than moving. My goal was, and continues to be, creating a space that provides the Main Line with a place to discover and discuss great books whether newly published, or just new to us. I read a broad range of books, but especially enjoy literary fiction and narrative non-fiction. 

What Could Be Saved: A Novel Cover Image
ISBN: 9781982150624
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Washington Square Press - August 31st, 2021

Set in contemporary DC and Bangkok in the 1970s. This is the story of a sister’s search for her missing brother, a family that has made many mistakes and looking for forgiveness. A really good read.


The Last Graduate: A Novel (The Scholomance #2) Cover Image
ISBN: 9780593128862
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Del Rey - September 28th, 2021

The second book in an epic fantasy trilogy set in a world where, if you are a child with magical skills, you are very unlikely to survive into adulthood. I recommend buying the first and second book at the same time because the store is not open 24 hours a day.

Da Vinci's Cat Cover Image
ISBN: 9780063015258
Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Greenwillow Books - May 25th, 2021

DaVinci’s Cat is a great family read-aloud by a local author. It truly has something for everyone. It is historical fiction, fantasy and a mystery. It includes great artists, time travel, adventure and, of course, a cat!

I actually don’t own this cookbook. I keep giving it to people as gifts and then reaping the fruits of their labor. I highly recommend that strategy, and be sure to let your giftee know that the Tahini brownies are healthy!
