Winter Reading Challenge!

It's that time of year again! It's cold out, and the falling snow makes the perfect backdrop to a cozy reading hour! Need some inspiration (or motivation--we know you're eyeing that Netflix tab...)? Participate in our Winter Reading Challenge! Stop by to pick up a sheet that lists different kinds of books, and see how many you can check off!

24 Days of Holiday Gift Recommendations!

This year, we're helping you pick out the perfect gifts for you loved ones, one day at a time! Each day, we'll be posting new recommendations by theme. Have a friend who loves film? Music? Tea? Baking? Sports? No matter who you're shopping for, there are great books and other gifts here to inspire you.

As always, never hesititate to ask for assistance from any of our booksellers, whether it be in locating something specific, recommendations, ordering (most items arrive overnight at no extra charge), or shipping straight to the recipient's door. We hope to see you all soon, even if only to wish you Happy Holidays!
