We make reading affordable!
Beginning the first Monday in July (July 1st) we will be returning to our full Monday hours: 10-5:30. Thanks for your patience during the school year when we have been opening at 1:00. It has really helped having a couple of hours to run errands. Since I will now be having more help I won't need those extra hours off. :-) Hope to see you then!
Mon. 10:00 - 5:30
Tues.-Thurs. 10:00 - 5:30
Friday 10:00 - 7:00
Saturday 10:00 - 5:00
We tried COUNTLESS times to make a book Christmas tree, and all it ever looked like was a messy pile of books we needed to file! So I'll just borrow a picture of one to show you how cute it can be! Also, to wish you the best of holiday seasons! We are open regular hours throughout the month of December except for closing for Christmas. Hope to see you before next year!!

TRADE POLICY ( once again )
Bring in your books (no more than 1 bag or 1 box at a time please) and if we can use them we will give you 1/4 or 25% of the publishers price in credit toward our books which are 1/2 or 50% of the publishers price. We also sell newer hardbacks, which are priced well below 1/2 price. If you bring in hardbacks that we can use you will recieve half of what we would sell it for, in credit.
We have a 25 cent cash charge per book traded out. So even if you have book credit it would still cost you some change for your books. (We have tried to pay our rent and overhead in books but it just didn't work out.)
If you spend more than $5. on your total purchase the 25 cent charge is waived....and we thank you!!
There are a few catagories that we limit to same type trades, these include urban romance, i.e. vampire/werewolf/shapechanger romances (Feehan, Harris, Hamilton, Meyer etc), Science Fiction and Fantasy. Newer releases may be taken out in trade if you bring in books 3 months from copyright or newer.
We sell brand new books for 25% off the publishers price. These books can never be taken out on trade.
Always popular Car Charms are back! Only $5. and they give your car a lot of charm when they are hanging from your rear view mirror. Customers have mentioned they have also hung them on ceiling fans and lamps. Come by and see for yourself!
