We take children's books seriously here. So seriously that we had to stop Jen and Kaz from getting into a dance off over whether Wings of Fire was better that Warriors.

Sometimes we wish that books came equipped with jazz hands so you could tell the really exuberant books at a glance.

Sometimes when the store calms down we have a game we play called "which book cover is the prettiest". Currently City of Dark Magic by Magnus Flyte ( and ) is up against Song of Achilles by . We'll get Mary to be the tie braking vote

So we decided to take a staff break and chill out at our wine bar while reading great works of fiction. We have achieved a new level of sophistication and refinement that was only slightly marred by Kaz's unique laughter (shes a weezer) as she read 's Calypso.

It's a testament to how much we love our customers that don't hoard all of 's books and actually put some on our shelves to share.

We will not be overwhelmed by patrons asking for good books for a baby shower. Our resolve and our children book section is strong and diverse. We will match every party guest to the perfect gift book. We WILL be victorious.

Did you know we have a lot of dog training books in stock? Unfortunately none of them explain how to teach your dog basic bar tending skills, so if you want to be served wine while you read you have to come visit us and hang out at our new wine bar.

We can't wait for visit us!!!!! We were so excited that we legitimately thought bringing a lot of sand in the store to create a beachy mood was a good idea! We reconsidered but are still very excited!!! Get more info at

We tried to adapt the training montage from Rocky to bookselling. Tbh drinking a raw book smoothie is somehow worse than drinking a raw egg smoothie and meat boxing doesn't add anything to your shelving technique. But y'all deserve excellent book sellers so we'll keep training.
