Hello Friends!

Here’s the plan (for now). We had dreams of readings, music, and gatherings for our first summer in the store but Covid-19 has other ideas. We will not be opening our physical store for the foreseeable future but we’re here to find the next great read for you.

We will be open for curbside pick-up Thursday through Saturdays. Shop at our online store or call or email and our staff help you find a good read. The online store is a mix of used and new books + specialty items in the store. We continue to have a lot with our Surprise Me option. 

If you don’t find what you’re looking for at our online store, we’ve partnered with Bookshop.org to where you can purchase almost any book in the world—it’s like Amazon but for indies and without the guilt.

Just follow this link and get browsing! We’ve created curated collections and have lots of suggestions for new and old favorites for you. Any purchases made via that link directly benefit Honest Dog Books and help keep us chugging along during this pandemic.

Just be sure you see our logo in the top left corner of your screen as you’re shopping.

Thank you for your support and we can’t wait to welcome you into the store.
