Website news

ThistlefootThis month we're updating our in-store point of sale system and we'll be changing our website so that they are  . . . integrated! This will be complex and I apologize for delays — the site may be offline/unable to take orders for a little while. We will be importing accounts over and we are seeing if we can transfer wishlists, too, of course. Once that's all done and the electrons and dust settle, we'll get our long-planned membership program going: anyone can shop at the store but . . . Astronauts? Lunanauts? Moonbeams? Hmm! . . . will get a tiny discount, huge thanks, and at higher levels, goodies. But that's then. For now, please do call (413-203-1717) or email us for books and we'll do our best to get them for you.


Masks are required in the store to protect immunocompromised people and children, thank you.

We have new stock of our free-with-purchase 11" x 17" Reader's Guide to Western Massachusetts Bookshops map! The art is by Kathleen Jennings.

If you prefer we can still do Curbside Pickup:

— Place your lovely book orders on this website or by phone: 413-203-1717.
— Select  "I would like to pick this order up at the store" under "Pick-Up options"
— If we have the books in stock, we'll call or email so that you can pick them up. If not, we'll contact you with an estimated pickup date. We'll reach out again when the books arrive.
— Call when you're at the store, give us your name, and we'll put your books on our Curbside Pickup chair so that we can stay socially distant from one another.

Our latest Small Beer Press title is Richard Butner's debut collection The Adventurists.

This website shows our supplier's inventory. We have a small percentage of that million+ books (around 12,000) in the store.

We can get most books within:
— 1-3 business days (nearer warehouse)
— 5-7 business days (further warehouse)
— occasionally longer (high demand/backlist or print on demand title)

  • Order online 24/7.
  • Get a Book Moon Gift Certificate — the promise of books (or T-shirts, puzzles, calendars, etc. etc.) from Book Moon in the future.
  • We use and recommend Libro FM for audiobooks.
  • Need something more portable? We sell ebooks.
  • Our used books are beginning to be uploaded to Biblio — an independent website where we find the condition descriptions are generally (not always, eh) more accurate. 

Thanks as ever for buying books & things and keeping this neighborhood bookshop alive!
