Greetings from the land of almost-spring Maine. I've been adding more new items to our ever-growing website, and as I do so, have started creating more categories for easy browsing.
Tonight I added some fun ones to our Non-Fiction collections:
It's a slow process, but it's fun to see it taking shape. Please email us to let us know if there is anything you would like us to order for you, if we don't have it used. Part of the adventure of adding more new books to the mix is the ability to fill in gaps in our used selection -- books that I've wanted to have in the shop, but which rarely came in secondhand.
If you're wondering what you've missed in our new stock (I'm adding books every week!), jump on over to our New Arrivals page and you can get caught up. You might be surprised at what you find!
Happy almost-spring, everyone! 🍀🐇

This is an open letter to anyone who loves Portland, Maine, and all its small businesses. I have been thinking about writing this letter for months now, and finally feel like I have a moment to sit down and write out my thoughts.

Another helping program we've been able to add (thanks to generous patron assistance) is a storefront on Bookshop.org!
If you enter Bookshop.org via the above link, your purchases anywhere on the site, whether from our recommendation lists or not, will benefit us substantially. I'm not kidding -- they really do send us a generous portion of their proceeds from these purchases. It's a great way to route money out of the hands of Amazon and into the local economy, all at the same time.
This new addition lets you buy new books from us that we don't have in stock, and sends them directly to your doorstep. Safe and easy!
I'll be adding more recommended reading in coming weeks if you're looking for ideas as to what to read next.
Thank you everyone for your support! We wouldn't be here without you all taking the time to help out in little ways like this.

Hi everyone! This is a note to say that if you want to support the shop, but are more likely to listen to audiobooks these days, you can still help out!
We are now signed up with Libro.fm, and when you buy from or subscribe to their audiobook library via their Green Hand Bookshop page, we will receive a portion of the proceeds. This is also a great way to move away from using Amazon-owned companies such as Audible.
Thank you in advance for your support! And... happy reading, however you enjoy your books!
