Have a Merry Christmas everyone and Cheers to all for 2019.

 We are a gently used bookstore but do carry some new books; as well as locally made greeting cards; postcards; and bookmarks, etc.

  Thank you to all the customers who have reviewed our business on 'google my business': wonderful kind words-we appreciate your support, suggestions and business.

Thank you to Erica Lahoda for updating our website--we are in our 9th year of business and thought it time to update the site.  (Erica had been one of the original people to create our website back in 2009.) Let us know what you think of the updated site.

 New Books into the Store:

October 2018: Sean Arthur Joyce, an author from the Kootenays, has brought in 'Mountain Blues'-a fiction story about people from a small town fighting to keep their hospital open.

August 2018: #11 of the Shuswap Chronicles is here; and #82 of the Okanagan History.

                      Shawn Bird's new murder mystery, "Murdering Mr. Edwards"--Shawn is a local author and her book has been endorsed by Diana Gabaldon.
