Calling all Martians! Andy Weir will be joining us for Fort Collins Book Fest!

He'll be doing a book talk and signing on Saturday, October 20th at 5:30pm at the Lory Student Center, and it will be free to attend. However, if you are one of the first 35 people to donate 25$ to Book Fest, you'll get Priority Signing! This means you'll be the first in line to meet Andy and get your books signed. You won't have to wait in what's sure to be a long signing line.

Drop by the store to make your donation--cash only, since we don't have the same system as Book Fest--to get your ticket and your place in line!

John Scalzi is coming back to Fort Collins! 

He'll be joining us on Sunday, October 21st at 7pm, at St. Luke's Episcopal Chruch (2000 Stover St). The event is free, but a ticket is required--this is so we know how many people to expect! Your ticket number corresponds to your place in the signing line, so the earlier you reserve, the less time you'll have to wait to meet John and have your books signed! 

 Email us, call us, or drop by the store to reserve your ticket today!

Hey, romance readers...

We've scooted our romance section to a new home on one of the new displays, and we're looking to add some muscle to it! So tell us your favorite romance author, your favorite series, what new, dashing page you're desperate to start turning, and we'll build up a list so we know what our romance customers are looking for and have them on hand more readily!

We can even do a "Romance Pull List"--email us your most anticipated books and we'll make sure we order them in so they're waiting for you on their pub date!

We know you're out there, romance readers, and we'd love to get you more of what you want. Help us get our section looking like the fanciest duke or dashingest rogue instead of the sad, wilted, jilted lover it is right now!

We've brought our educator discount back!

If you teach any grade from Pre-K to 12, you can bring your vaild school ID and get 20% off of books for your classroom! 

And new this year, we're doing a student discount

It made a brief appearance last year when CSU kindly voted us Best Bookstore in town, but we're making it a permanent fixture: CSU students who show us a valid ID at the register can get 15% off their purchases! This also works for Front Range Community College students. Just show us your ID and start saving! 

So come visit us and give your brain--and your wallet--a break!
