by Ta-Nehisi Coates
First Edition, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy, signed on a tip-in by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

"Ta-Nehisi Coates exploded into our world after Between the World and Me hit the shelves. He has a keen eye for the issues facing America and uses his blistering words to highlight what needs to be done. His newest work is no exception. He has collected some of his best articles and combined them with his own personal stories. What emerges is a powerful look at the Obama years. By looking back, Coates has given us hope for the future." - Ivy, Bookshop Staff


by Kelly and Zach Weinersmith
First Edition, First Printing, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of Soonish: Ten Emerging Technologies That'll Improve and/or Ruin Everything, signed on a tip-in by Kelly Weinersmith and Zach Weinersmith.

"This book is like the ultimate party companion: it’s funny and smart and it feeds you lines that will make you seem funny and smart. From the creator of the web comic Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal (and his super-cool wife) comes a book that will tell you everything you need to know to explain to your smarmy friend why certain technologies aren’t here (yet). Perfect for anyone who loves Bill Nye or just loves looking to the future." - Jax, Bookshop Staff


by Gabrielle Union
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound

We have signed copies available of We're Going to Need More Wine, signed by Gabrielle Union on a specially-bound tip-in page.

"Badass and gripping, this memoir feels like the most honest conversation you’ve ever had with a best friend about the important topics of your lives. Captivating whether you know Union or not, I want to hand this to every feminist with a reading list. Union’s transparency, intensity, and grace merit both awe and a prodigious red wine toast." - a.c., Bookshop Staff


by V.E. Schwab

by Joe Tone
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We have signed copies available of Bones: Brothers, Horses, Cartels, and the Borderland Dream, signed on the title page by Joe Tone.

Joe Tone's riveting, exquisitely layered crime narrative, set against the high-stakes world of horse racing, is an intimate story about family, loyalty, and the tragic costs of a failed drug war. Compelling and complex, Bones sheds light on the perilous lives of American ranchers, the morally dubious machinery of drug and border enforcement, and the way greed and fear mingle with race, class, and violence along America's vast Southwestern border.


by Alexander McCall Smith
First Edition, Tip-In

We have signed copies available of The House of Unexpected Sisters, the new No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency Novel, signed by Alexander McCall Smith.

Precious Ramotswe learns valuable lessons about first impressions and forgiveness in this latest installment of the beloved and best-selling No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency series.

Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are approached by their part-time colleague, Mr. Polopetsi, with a troubling story: a woman, accused of being rude to a valued customer, has been wrongly dismissed from her job at an office furniture store. Never one to let an act of injustice go unanswered, Mma Ramotswe begins to investigate, but soon discovers unexpected information that causes her to reluctantly change her views about the case.


by Lynn Freed
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We have signed copies of The Romance of Elsewhere available, signed on the title page by Lynn Freed.

"If Joan Didion and Fran Lebowitz had a literary love child, she would be Lynn Freed--or, at least, the resulting book would be Lynn Freed's essay collection, The Romance of Elsewhere . . . The collection of 20 previously-published essays spans decades and continents, and is in equal turns funny, wise, and sardonic; charting both Freed's evolution as a traveler and her evolution as a writer. Travelers and readers seeking an unusually un-romanticized take on wandering the world will love it." --Bustle


by Joe IDe
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page

We have signed copies available of Righteous, signed by Joe Ide on the title page.

For ten years, something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again-or lose his mind. With even more action, suspense, and mind-bending mysteries than Isaiah's first adventures, Righteous is a rollicking, ingenious thrill ride.
