A letter from Nick


April 1, 2020


Dear Friends,

Today is the one year anniversary of Next Chapter Booksellers. While never in our wildest dreams die we expect to be passing this milestone during a “stay-at-home” order, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your tremendous support throughout the year and especially during the past few weeks as we negotiate changes to the way we sell books in an effort keep our community and our booksellers healthy and safe.

We remain committed to bringing you great books.  As of today, here is how we will operate under the stay at home order:

  • You can continue to shop at your convenience here at nextchapterbooksellers.com 
  • We’ll be available by phone (651/225-8989) from 10:00am to 3:00pm every day to provide recommendations and to take phone orders.
  • For orders above $50, we’re offering free shipping via USPS and free neighborhood delivery.
  • Continue to connect with us through our website, social media and email. We’re hosting a lot of great virtual events. 

Please keep in mind that the situation is in flux, so we’ll modify our approach as needed to keep everyone safe. Check our website often for updates. 

My sincere thanks for your support.  Please stay healthy and keep reading!


Nick Ballas
owner, Next Chapter Booksellers
