Reader's Guide to Western Mass BookshopsOpen Monday - Saturday 10-6. Sunday 1-5

Join us in helping one of our booksellers in a very hard time.

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

We launched our Reader's Guide to Western Massachusetts Bookshops map with 4 full-page ads in the Gazette. On the back of the map are 23 new & used bookshops as well as a few suggestions for places to get something to eat. The maps are 11" x 17" and we (and the Odyssey and High Five Books) are giving them away free with purchases.

The art is by Australian author and artist Kathleen Jennings who has illustrated a number of Small Beer books (including Kij Johnson's Wind in the Willows sequel, The River Bank). We made the map in early 2020 and worked with the Odyssey and High Five Books on a bookstore crawl passport — but that idea was shelved when we all went to online and curbside pickup only. We'll try it next year. We have a few Indie Bookstore Day goodies available

When you come by don't miss saying hello to our lovely new neighbors at The Marigold! How wonderful it is that the theatre is open again.

Signed Books

We have signed copies of Holly Black's New York Times bestseller Book of Night.

Order books signed by Kelly Link, Holly Black, and Cassandra Clare. (Please read this page if you would like your copy personalized.) We usually have some signed copies available in the shop.

If you prefer we can still do Curbside Pickup:

— Place your lovely book orders on this website or by phone: 413-203-1717.
— Select either
—— "I would like to pick this order up at the store" under "Pick-Up options"
—— Or, under "Calculate Shipping Costs" choose "In-store pickup" (which means Curbside Pickup) or "Curbside Pickup + donation" (if you'd like to donate to the ECC).
— If we have the books in stock, we'll call or email so that you can pick them up. If we have to order the books we will 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.
  • Pick up a limited edition soft pink and punchy Read Books Punch Nazis shirt.
  • 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!
