Special Note re COVID-19

The Norwich Bookstore is processing orders for local schools and the college and so still operating...

We will have limited hours to take calls and put books out for pickup. Closed on Saturday & Sunday - no pickups or deliveries

We are very happy to take new orders as long as you understand that it takes longer to receive and process books than it used to. If you have a "cancel by" date, please let us know when you place your order.

We appreciate your support and patience during this challenging time. We'll be getting books out to you as long as feasible, working behind the scenes while the store is dark, and back to open hours as soon as possible. We truly miss the daily interactions we have come to so enjoy...

Take good care of yourselves and each other.

The Details

There is no public access to the bookstore until further notice. Only one of us will be at the store weekdays to place orders and arrange for pickup by appointment. We might not be able to immediately answer your calls and emails, but we will get back to you!

For Easter & Passover?

chocolate bunnyEaster is Sunday, April 12th. Passover begins Wednesday, April 8th, ending Thursday, April 16th. And we will be isolating for the duration...

Of course, chocolate bunnies and seasonal books were already on the way when we closed our doors. The cards and books will keep, but the bunnies need to find a basket to hop into! BUNNIES HAVE ALL BEEN SPOKEN FOR! 

Follow the links for more information: Chocolate bunnies, Easter books, and Passover books.

A Bookseller's Blotter

It was hard to take down the banners on Saturday afternoon, not knowing when we will put them up again to indicate that we are open to visitors…

While I am heartened by the flood of orders by phone, email, and via this website, I miss your company and conversations already!

I plan to send newsletters with reading suggestions. Maybe we can get a facebook thread of recommendations going?

The situation chanes so rapidly, I am planning just a day or two at a time. And yet, I will be ordering new titles and organizing events for when this crisis is behind us. I need to keep looking ahead to not become overwhelmed with the present.

Stay safe, be well - Liza
