Open Online Only

Hey, look at what Amanda and Beth are up on on the new site Bookshop — buy books from that site and support us, or, your fave website or indie bookshop!

Daily Hampshire Gazette: Mass Gov Issues Stay At Home Advisory.

WE ARE CLOSED. Boo hoo, but, really, we'd so much rather everyone was healthy.

Book orders from this website will still be shipped directly from our wholesaler. However, if you order Moon Merch, your order will not go through to them and will be fulfilled directly by us so may be a little delayed.

Thanks for your support. We are still mailing out orders. Yay! Hope you are well!


The physical bookstore is closed.
These are our curbside pick-up/take-out hours only.

Mon. - Sat. 12 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Closed Sundays.

We have 12,000+ books in the store and millions more available from our suppliers. Most of our booksellers are working from home (our newsletter's about to get more interesting — sign up here) and we are happily doing book takeout. Call in (413-203-1717) or order online and do curbside pickup or get them delivered right to your home.

Here's Gavin as one of many booksellers quoted in a New York Times story on how bookshops are hoping to survive.

Thanks as ever for reading.

Previously in this spot:

Book Moon will be closed for at least 2 weeks beginning Sunday March 15th. All events this month have been cancelled. Thank you for your online and phone orders!


We are keeping a close eye on this site and this CDC page

We have some upcoming eventsall of which are cancelled due to COVID-19 precautions. Please check our website before attending.

We are:

  • taking common sense precautions and hope you will, too:
  • wiping down all hard surfaces with Lysol wipes once/twice a day
  • waving hello, not shaking hands
  • washing hands often
  • staying home if sick
  • avoiding touching our faces.

Fingers crossed all is well. We want to be here, selling books &c., for years to come. But we do need to sell books to pay the rent, utilities, meet payroll, and so on. Things have been going great but if the town/state/country takes a 2-4 week break a la Italy, we would really appreciate:

Thanks as ever for reading.
