Welcome to Books End Bookshop!

Our 1st (and let's hope last) Stay-at-Home sale!



Dear Books End Customers,

As a "non-essential" business (we humbly disagree, but OK...), our shop remains closed. We will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.

During this time, we will continue to serve you. We can ship orders from our website, and  we are also offering curbside pickup service! Payment on curbside pickup orders must be made in advance (credit card), and we ask that you call ahead for pickup.  Any shipping costs for curbside orders will obviously be waived.

As a thank you to our great customers, we are having our first Stay-at-Home Sale. Everything on our website or in stock will be 25% OFF! the listed price - just enter STAY AT HOME in the promo code field at the shopping cart. Please note: our website has no option to remove shipping-WE WILL REMOVE SHIPPING CHARGES IF YOU ARE PICKING UP THE BOOKS. We process the credit cards manually, so if you have asked for curbside pickup (on the review your order page at checkout), you will NOT be charged for shipping.This sale price will include anything in the store, including stock not listed on our website.  Call or email if you don't see what you are looking for- we might have it! Our working hours vary - someone will be at the store every day, so keep trying .

We will continue to add books to our inventory from our significant back stock. Please keep checking back with us here and on social media for any updates.

This Fall, we will enter into our 35th year of operating the bookshop. We want to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing to shop at Books End.

We miss everybody, and look forward to seeing all of you soon.

Please stay safe and stay healthy,

Jim Roberts and the Books End Staff
