BIG NEWS, your up north bookstore is getting a few upgrades! New lighting, fresh paint, new flooring, and more shop updates are in the works starting next week (Monday, March 6th - Thursday, March 9th).

Monday: The front half of our store will be open for browsing and picking up your orders as normal.

Tuesday & Wednesday: Closed for in-store browsing, open for drive-up service. Our crew will be here to help with ordering & picking up books at our front door. (If you remember shopping with us during the Pandemic, it'll be somewhat like that).

Thursday: We hope to be open for in-store browsing again by Thursday, but just in case (you know how projects can go!) we wanted to give you a heads up that we might have modified browsing again.

Thank you for being patient with us during our remodel, we're so excited for you to see all of our updates!

What We're Reading

When We Were Birds

"Simply Stunning -- Walks the tightrope between folklore & suspense, using magical realism as the balance bar. It's rhythmic and musical and already feels like a classic."

-- Dana
