Pandemic Update

Shopping early is important this holiday season!

Book publishers have put the word out to bookstores that there are industry-wide delays this year, with social distancing and limited staffing impacting paper manufacturers, printers, binderies, and the warehouse and distribution network.

Plus, with lower-than-usual printing capacity in 2020, some popular books are expected to sell out nationwide, with reprints delayed until 2021. We're especially concerned about full-color books, like cookbooks and art books, but we're hearing these issues will be widespread.

Our staff is also practicing social distancing and processing a large volume of online orders with a small team. Order fulfillment of in-stock books is not immediate; please wait to be notified before you come to pick up your order!

For the best experience and to get your holiday orders in time, please start shopping early, or pre-order any not-yet-published books on your list.
