Newsletter 4/10/20

Hi Bookshelf friends!

This period of social isolation has slowed down a lot of things in the book world. Our publishing partners and distributors are taking a little extra time to fulfill our requests so they can keep their staff safe. So too, are our shipping partners, and we are so grateful to our delivery people for helping keep us stocked and books heading out to our community. Switching our business online only has also slowed down our staff a bit, as we take extra safety precautions including wearing gloves and cloth masks and extra time to make in-town deliveries and get books shipped around the country.

We dearly miss face-to-face interaction with all of you, helping with gifts and picking out your next great read in person, but we are still doing all that through our website and email. While our doors may be closed, Bookshelf staff are busy behind the scenes filling web orders and answering your email questions, so keep those orders coming! You can find us open 24 hours a day here on our website or drop us a line at

Our staff are still eager to recommend books, wrap gifts, and celebrate great books. Check out our staff recommendation pages to see what your favorite bookseller is reading, or visit our Kids and YA section for great resources for students learning at home. We miss you, and we want to thank you for all the support you’ve shown us especially these last couple weeks. So let us know how we can help with your reading needs -- or just pop by our Facebook or Instagram and tell us what you’re reading. We can’t wait to hear from you.
