Changes underway

Getting in touch with us

Please spread the word: the old Bookpeople phone number no longer works; we were not able to secure it and we sincerely apologize for this inconvenience to Bookpeople’s faithful customers. Even if you call it and get something that sounds like Bookpeople’s answering machine, please don’t leave a message as we won’t receive it. We […]

Some things need new homes…

Thanks to the folks who helped get the store cleaned out on Tuesday and Wednesday into the wee hours with Bob and who did a good job getting a lot of the misc. out of the nooks and crannies where it was stashed and into the open where it could be dealt with. We’ve been sorting […]

First day

Wow, what an amazing first day, starting with the sun that was shining when Reed and rode our bikes downtown at 8 am.

You can […]

What about book clubs?

Oh, gosh, do we love book clubs. If you’re in a book club please get in touch with Carol as soon as you can. We plan on offering a special discount for book club reading selections ordered through us, making our cozy meeting area in the back available to you for your meetings if you […]

Will you have used or new books or both?

We will have both used and new books but we will concentrate mostly on new books. There are a couple reasons for this. We want to be able to offer the excellent values that you can find with used books, but while there are a couple very well-established used book stores in the area, there […]

What we are aspiring to be …

No matter what you have heard, we will remain a full-fledged independent bookstore.  We will focus on many of the same things as Bookpeople has in the past (like local and regional authors, native American studies, books on the Inland Northwest, and travel books), but we will put a new emphasis on a number of […]
