January Author Events!

After taking the holiday season off, we are excited to get back into hosting some great book events! This January we are hosting local authors almost exclusively. Not a bad way to start the new year!

We're kicking it off Thursday the 9th with Sandra Dallas at Old Town Library. Then we've got a few packed weekends we're excited about: Friday the 10th, we're heading down to Loveland to celebrate LIZZIE DEMANDS A SEAT with Beth Anderson at the Loveland Museum; Saturday the 11th, roman author Amalie Howard is signing THE BEST OF BESWICK in the store. The weekend after, there will be a morning storytime with author Patrick Jennings and an afternoon signing with Joe Vallen. And there's one more signing on Saturday the 25th with Linnea Tanner to celebrate the third book in her series! 

For more information on any or all of these great events, check out the monthly event calendar. February's events are up there as well, and we're hard at work on March's, so keep an eye out for more great authors heading our way! 

Bring Us Books, Get a Discount!

Are you cleaning off your bookshelves so you can start the new year with a slimmer, more manageable to-be-read list? Getting rid of some old books you're never planning to read again? Didn't really like that one and want it gone? We're happy to take them off your hands! Our used books all come from you, our customers! But there are some guidelines for how you can get your used books onto our shelves. 

We don't do books for cash. Instead, we use a trade credit system, so every book you trade in, you get credit for. That credit is used to get you discounts on books and bookish things you buy in the store! When you make a purchase after trading in books, credit will automatically be deducted from your trade credit bank. You will save 10% off new books and 50% off used books. You will always pay something, but you will also save some money as long as you have enough trade credit. 

It works like this: If you bring us a book that costs $16 (most paperbacks nowadays), $4 are deposited in your credit bank. Then, if you buy a $10 new book, you’ll get a dollar off and have $3 left in your credit bank. If you buy a $6 used book, you’ll get $3 off and have $1 left in your credit bank.  It’s not a direct exchange, but you are always saving money! 

You can find more information on the Used Book Policy page about what books we do and don't accept, when trade hours are, and how many books we take at a time. And of course, if you have any questions, we're happy to answer them if you call, email, or stop in! 

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!
