The Latest from the Pen

Book Chats

This week’s episode: Barbara speaks with NY Times bestselling author, Douglas Preston!

We thank you that, in the midst of all this, you’ve showered us with not only orders, but so much love and genuine kindness, it’s… a lot. You are the best….. And your patience when things get backed up or tech fails is so appreciated. We hope the team work here and the sense of community you share with us will make us better than ever. 

Please bring on those orders. And both attend and share our virtual programs.

For you to select a book, you need to know something about yourself or the person you’re buying it for. It’s an important, thoughtful, personal decision. The magic of the bookstore is discovery.

Right now most of the discovery happens from books we review in the Booknews, BookNotes, and Enews; books we discuss in channels like podcasts, IGTV, You Tube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (I’m getting more staff to do short book videos for Instagram/IGTV); virtual events and book chats. And by phone.

We do not have a reopening date for browsing as yet. Or for in store events. 

Meanwhile we are here for phone, curbside pickup, and internet shopping. It’s a huge worry that if one of us becomes infected we present a danger to you, the rest of the staff, and end us up in quarantine which would shutter the store for a period.

We thank you for your continued support and will work harder at innovating more ways to deliver discovery and reading to you.

Reminder: Shipping is a flat $3.00 per order
