(closed Sunday & Monday)
We will continue taking orders by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone (413-256-1547), from 10:00 - 4:00 Tuesday through Thursday, & from 10:00 - 6:00 Friday & Saturday; if no one picks up during those hours we’re sometimes overwhelmed, please try again in a few minutes. After hours please call again the next day, we are not listening to messages. (Students: to order textbooks, please use our textbook email: email@example.com.)
We will continue curbside pickup, deliver books to the homebound in the local area, & will mail books for a small fee.
We truly believe that books & bookstores are essential—especially in times of crisis. If you would like to order a
book but have a financial hardship, please reach out to us via email & we will try our best to make accommodations.
We wish you & yours many healthy returns.
Shannon & Nat
“The greatest gift is a passion for reading. It distracts, it excites, it gives you knowledge of the world & experience of a
wide kind. It is moral illumination.” - Elizabeth Hardwick
