Great American Read and 1/2 Price Sci-Fi and Fantasy!

Events in the Great American Read were kicked off this week by PBS to “spark a national conversation about reading and books that have inspired, moved, and shaped us.” They’ve published a list of 100 books, from which readers will be invited to pick their favorites. We have their list at the shop in a special display, along with many of the books on the list. How many of the 100 have you read?

Our half-price sale this weeks is in Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Hours:
Monday through Saturday, 9 to 4
Thursdays open until 6
Closed Sundays

Writer's Resource Center - 1/2 OFF!

Our half-price sale continues in the Writer’s Resource Center, which you’ll find in the Classics Room.

Every day, generous donors give us books. We very much appreciate these donations. But we have to ask that donors bring them only when the shop is open, and not leave them outside. Even a few hours outside can damage books so badly that we can’t sell them. If the shop is closed when you bring books, and the library is open, you may leave them at the library.

Thank you!
