Welcome to Books End Bookshop! 


Dear Books End Customers,

Out of concern for our employees, their families and our customers, Books End will be closed starting March 20 through at least April 1st, 2020.

We will re-open as soon as it is safe to do so.

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.

Orders on this website will be processed and shipped as the situation warrants.

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 are looking forward to re-opening and seeing you soon!

Please stay safe and stay healthy,

Jim Roberts and the Books End Staff
