Every week, we send an email newsletter, featuring a book recommendations, new releases, events, and any other book- and store-related information we think you might want to know about. (But we'll keep each one pretty short.) Usually we feature a New Book of the Week, an Old Book of the Week, a Kids Book of the Week, and a Non-Book of the Week, but we're not too strict about consistency.

You can sign up to receive the newsletter (with no accompanying spam!) at the bottom of this page, and you can see our current and past newsletters online as well:

(We'll also use the same subscriber list to send out store announcements for events or news that seem worth their own message, but we'll keep that as rare as we can. In fact, we can't think of what sort of announcement that might be, but we just wanted to warn you that it's possible, and we promise we won't abuse it.)
