Start your holiday shopping now!

Shop early to get the books you want for the holidays

It's time to start making your list and checking it twice.

For a number of reasons--consolidation in the printing industry, safer slower warehouses, shipping disruptions--bookstores are going to have a challenging time keeping hot titles in stock during the coming holiday season. More than ever, it's important that you buy your December must-haves now. Preorder a book now, and there shouldn't be any problems getting it in time to put under the tree. Leave things until the last minute, and you might need to give a gift certificate instead of an actual book.

To help you find the right book for everyone on your list, we'll be featuring some of the year's big titles. Here's a selection to get you started. We'll have more in future newsletters, on our social media feeds, and on our website in the weeks ahead.

And we always enjoy making more personalized recommendations. Call us at 651/225-8989 Monday to Saturday between 10am and 3pm to talk to a bookseller.
