The Latest from The Pen

We thank you for sticking with us and for your generous orders and attendance at our Virtual Events. We hope you enjoy the more casual book chats, too, such as the one for writers of spy fiction, thrillers, and those missing travel in a conversation with Joseph Kanon below.

Please believe how grateful we are and by all means keep the orders coming—they are our lifeblood. YOU are our lifeblood. And we appreciate your patience as the supply and shipping systems are both running slow.

Downtown Scottsdale is scheduled to reopen on June 4. And so will we all things remaining as they are. This is subject to change to comply with state and city policy.

We plan a very limited Open Policy. We must keep you and our staff as safe as we can in the situation where we find ourselves.

We will follow these guidelines:

Masks are required for staff and for customers. BYOM!

Sanitize your hands at the door, also required.

Limited to 4 people every 30 minutes on the hour and half hour

Please wait socially distanced outside the side door in the breezeway

Please follow the one way traffic flow while browsing and keep at least six feet away from any other person

No cash transactions

The public restroom will remain closed

New Shipping Policy

The bookstore cannot sustain absorbing all the shipping costs and remain open.

But we want to share them with you.

Starting today, June 1st, all new mail orders will be charged a flat $3 per shipment.

We are not able to accumulate orders for more than two weeks. Please do not request that we do. Books get lost or are not pulled and disappear before your order can be filled.

Thank you  

New – Book Chats!
