Excercise Some Shelf Care: Grab Books & A Brownie!

We’re partnering up with our friends at Eva’s on Main to bake us some of those wicked good brownies (the same ones you went through 5 trays of during the last Downtown Dessert Stroll!).

It’s simple: Buy a book (or two) for curbside pickup and we’ll pack a FREE, scratch-baked, pre-wrapped brownie into your book bag! Want a perfect shelf-care selection? Browse our titles below or call for a recommendation and to order your books at 843-875-5171. It’s our way of brightening your day as we continue to read in place…

Here’s How to Shop Your Books:

Just some of our recommendations!

We continue to take orders by phone, email, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Please include a phone number so we can confirm your order.

  1. When picking up your books, please call in advance or when you arrive outside (843-875-5171) so we can bag your purchase, your brownie and your receipt and leave it outside the door at our pickup station.
  2. If you need your books delivered, we can make arrangements.
  3. If you’re not sure what you want, browse our in-stock list HERE, or browse our list recommendations (or any book) HERE. Or call – we’re happy to prescribe an anecdote for stir crazy!
  4. Online Ordering continues at our ONLINE BOOKSHOP. And thank you so much to all those who’ve already shopped here – it’s easy and convenient for you AND us!
