The Holiday Gift Guide is Here with Suggestions for Everyone on Your List! 

'Tis that season again. You know, the one full of sparkly, twinkle lights, warm mugs of hot cocoa, shiny wrapping paper and ribbons...and of course, books! Okay, so it's always book season here at the Firehouse, but November and December are GIFT GUIDE SEASON! We've launched our annual catalog of Holiday Suggestions, which has a book for everyone on your list!

Last year's day-by-day spotlight on Facebook of books from the Holiday Gift Guide seemed helpful to many of you, so we're back at it again. Track the #OFBGiftGuide19 tag once again to see the book highlights of the season! Or if you want to see the whole catalog in one place, come in and grab a physical, paper copy, or check out the link to the online Gift Guide page here

Stop in any time between now and the end of the year to get 15% off any of the books (1 book per visit!) in the Guide and get your holiday shopping done early!

Holiday Hours: 

Here's a list of our holiday hours for the whole season, so you can plan your bookish buying accordingly! 

November 28th: Thanksgiving Day: Closed
November 29th and 30th: Black Friday and Small Business Saturday: Normal Hours (9am-9pm)
December 24th: Christmas Eve: Closing Early (9am-5pm) 

December 25th: Christmas Day: Closed 
December 31st: New Year's Eve: Closing Early (9am-5pm)

This year's shipping deadlines are 12/9 for harder-to-get books and smaller publishers and 12/16 for everything else. If you're special ordering a book for a gift and you want it by Christmas Eve, get your orders in soon! 

We will also not be taking used books for trade or donation for the month of December. If you're cleaning out your shelves for the holidays, come soon, because once December hits, we'll be too busy with holiday craziness and other store responsibilities. We will resume trade on January 5th. Thank you for your understanding! 

Liberate Your Audiobook and E-book Libraries with and Hummingbird! 

We know you're busy, and you don't always have time to sit down and read a book. And space is limited, so paper-and-ink copies aren't always practical when you can squish a whole library onto your e-reader. Luckily, we've got you covered on both fronts! is your one-stop shop for audiobooks. You pick the duration of your subscription--one month, three months, six months, or the whole year--and you get access to over 100,000 audiobooks on any of your devices at any time you want. You get one audiobook a month for your subscription, and you can purchase even more audiobooks for 30% off! You can sign up through to support them and us and make your road trip or your daily run  just a little more literary! 

Hummingbird is the place to go for e-books! Hit up our storefront at to browse thousands of quality e-books from today's bestsellers to your kid's new favorite picture book, from this month's mystery book club pick to the romance you've been craving to the history book you want to learn from. They've got everything you could imagine available to download to all your favorite devices. Their Frequently Asked Questions page will even tell you how to get the app on your Kindle Fire or Nook! 

Since we're partnered with and with Hummingbird, every audiobook you subscribe for or e-book you buy through our storefronts on their websites helps us. So you're not only supporting fantastic digital book services, you're supporting your favorite indie, too! It's a win-win-win for them, us, and you! 

Don't Forget Your Student Discount! 

A lot of you have taken advantage of this, but we want to remind all college students (and faculty!)--at CSU and FRCC--that if you show us your valid student (or faculty!) ID, you'll get 15% off each item you purchase from us! You must show us your ID at the beginning of your transaction at the register for the discount to be applied. This discount does not stack with other discounts, but we'll always give you the better of the discounts!
