A Newsletter Note from Bookshop's Owner

Dear Readers,

As the world starts to open, I find myself looking for books that transport me so that I can feel more comfortable with my newly expanded reality. I seek out books on how to contend with grief to try to process the wars, COVID, and politics that dominate the headlines and my daily thoughts. I center on authors whose writing is so good that I see the world from a completely different view. I hunt for entertainment and escape to guarantee a laugh by the end of each day. Bookshop’s booksellers have spent the last few months reading hundreds of books to share with you these reading experiences. We hope you find comfort, learning, and escape in their recommendations and on our shelves. The doors are open, the books are flowing in, and the booksellers are ready. We hope to see you soon.
