Our Books

Walk in hours Wednesday&Saturday
10am to 6pm

We offer open-shop hours while still offering an option to pre-book private appointments.

Normally on Saturdays and Wednesdays we will have open shop hours from 10:00 to 6:00. Of course, keeping distanced, sanitizing, like we have been doing all along, will still be required. But if you just don’t want to pre-book your shopping time, here is your opportunity to buy books in an open shop, just like the before times.
 
We will still be open by appointment other days in the week. And we are still offering our unique pre-booking discount. Make a reservation to shop alone or with your pod, in half-hour time slots for just a $25 deposit for each half hour. This deposit goes toward your purchase, with any balance back to you in a gift certificate. But the best part, is you get 25% off your entire purchase and an entire bookstore to yourself! Purchase Now!
 
Anyway you decide to come in, we look forward seeing you again soon. Your purchases hep us stay in business, and for that, we are grateful.
 
We’ll still provide curb-side delivery, local delivery and we will ship anywhere in the world. You can always call us, or email us, or send us a Facebook note; we’re always happy to help you find just the right book. Contact Us for details.  
 
Thanks for helping us stay in business!
 
 

 

Check out our unique completely touch free payment system that has everyone who visits talking like “If only every store was like yours” and “Safest place I’ve been all year”

We also started doing online reading, check some out at Online Readings.

If you need books covered, make an appointment and we will quarantine them, cover them and make an appointment for you to pick them up again.

Since business is down and we need to quarantine books, we cannot take in any books beyond our specific immediate needs. Don’t worry we have several years’ of inventory.  We currently need copies of “1984”, “Animal Farm”, “The Great Gatsby”,  “Dune”, and anything by Tolkien.  Contact us if you have copies you would like to part with.
