Happy Groundhog's month and Happy Lunar New Year! It's the Year of the Dragon so pick up one of our fantasies that have dragons in them! Have you checked out our events page? We are so excited for our Kelly Yang event in February. Her books are MUST READS. Any New Year's reading resolutions? Now is the time to explore--maybe try something you don't usually read? Check out all our great new releases. We loved so many books last year that we are re-running last month's Best of the 2023 Year Staff Picks. Whether you like the classics, biography, horror or mystery, or a swoony romance, we're happy to help you. Come in and ask us for recommendations. We won't rest until we find that perfect read for you. And don't worry about how many books you have at home. If your To Be Read pile isn't big enough to crush you when it falls over, you're nowhere near the legal limit. Plus, this winter weather is perfect for cuddling up under a comfy blanket with a good book.
The book you want isn't in stock? Consider ordering it. Or buy a Gift Card (good for in-store or online purchases) or Online Giftcode (for online purchases only) instead! They make great presents and take the work and stress off of you to find the perfect pick.
Curbside pickup is still available for those who prefer not to come into the store. Quick and simple: Just place your order and when you're notified it's ready for pickup, dash in from our back parking lot, grab your bag from the boxes in the hallway, then dash back out. Or, if you prefer shipping, we offer free media mail shipping for orders of $100 or more.
Black Bear Cafe: The cafe seating is back! Now you can enjoy a hot coffee or tea and one of Gail Ann's delicious doughnuts without standing out in the cold!
Thanks again for bringing so much joy into our store and cafe!
