Virtual Browsing!

NB new roomWe get it - you miss browsing. And we miss you! But even as we gradually open (see details below), you may still browse from the comfort of your home.

So we created a new Browse Books by Category list here on our website that includes dozens of books you would discover if you were here in person highlighting new and notable fiction and non-fiction; hardcover and paperback, for readers of all ages. 

There is also a page for Staff Picks and Featured Seasonal Lists including Irish Literature and St. Patrick's Day, and Women's History Month.


Special Note

The bookstore is not currently open for browsing. But we ARE here everyday except Sunday with lots of books and other treasures and happy to help!

A Bookseller's Blotter

What with the pandemic, politics, and personal challenges, I have been Books to pick upsomewhat distracted these past few months…

Many of you may be in the same boat which may explain the many unclaimed packages waiting for pick up! You head out to do errands and then get home and realize you drove right past the bookstore and forgot to stop for your package. Or the weather took a turn for the worse and you felt you better head home before it got dark and the roads became slick.

Whatever the reason, we have a growing backlog of book orders waiting for their readers! We try to reach out with reminders but have been having a hard time tracking some of you down as we don't have current phone numbers or email addresses on file.  

We all look forward to the day when you can stop by for your order and stay to browse but we are not ready to open until cases decrease and the cross-state travel ban is lifted. Until then, please be in touch by phone or email. We’re happy to bring things out to the porch for you. - Liza
