Selection: We are constantly working on increasing our selection of books so that there is a book for everyone.

Earth Conscious: We deliver twice a week to reduce on our carbon footprint and all packaging is 100% recyclable and reusable. We include pre-owned books in our selection so they can be re-used and enjoyed again. 

Literacy: We are committed to doing our part in promoting literacy here at home.  A small percentage of our sales will go towards this cause.
