Happy Holidays!

We encourage you to give the gift of reading this holiday season!

The snow has fallen, the town is decked out with pine boughs and holidays lights. The holidays are here. While the temperatures have been significantly lower than normal this year, we have been thrilled to see so many of our customers braving the cold. We know that your "inbox" is likely overflowing with holiday deals and steals at this time of year, and while we do have a few specials for you to consider, we'd also like you to encourage you to give the gift of books and shop local this year. 

Take some time to peruse these holiday suggestions. If you are looking for something in particular, just ask! If we don't have it, there is a very good chance we can still get it before Christmas. Our deadline for special orders is 5pm on Wednesday, December 18th. This will ensure our final holiday delivery to arrive on Monday, December 23rd. And, don't forget, we are open until 3pm on Christmas Eve! If you aren't quite sure what they reader in your life is looking for, we offer gift cards in any amount, but if you purchase a $100 gift card, we'll give you $10 to spend on yourself!

We wish you all nothing but the best this holiday season and in the year to come! We are ever grateful for your continued patronage and are so very proud to be your local bookseller!

Happy Holidays,
