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.
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 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.
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!
We use this book most beautiful weekends. It gives you all of the important information, how hard is the trail? Can you bring your dog? Where should you park.
