We believe in readers. We believe in books. We believe in the power of the written word. We believe in the magic of children discovering the world of books. We believe in this community. We believe that people prefer buying books from their friendly neighborhood bookstore rather than a website. We believe in browsing for hours with a good cup of tea. We believe in staying up until 2 in the morning because you just can’t put a book down. We believe in book clubs, libraries, and reading under trees. We believe that some books you make your friends read and some books you should keep under your bed and never tell anyone about. We believe in making a difference through books.

New Staff Favorite!
Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn’t commit. Though fiercely independent, Celestial finds herself bereft and unmoored, taking comfort in Andre, her childhood friend, and best man at their wedding. As Roy’s time in prison passes, she is unable to hold on to the love that has been her center. After five years, Roy’s conviction is suddenly overturned, and he returns to Atlanta ready to resume their life together.

Goodnight Crested Butte
Goodnight Crested Butte is a children's book that says goodnight to all the sights, buildings and things that make Crested Butte, CO special. The book is illustrated by local painter Brent Laney and the text is authored by the owner of the local bookstore, Danica Ramgoolam.
In a little town in the heart of the Rockies
There are shimmering leaves on aspen trees
And a little bookshop that serves coffee and teas
Goodnight wildflowers, so colorful and cute
Goodnight Crested Butte
