Community Involvement

Love to read? Great! We want to hear from you — we are always looking for avid readers to recommend new and old favorites.

1. Have a favorite book you want to tell us about?

Click on the link below to a Google Form where you can submit a brief review -- 3-5 sentences, perhaps -- of a book you read and loved.

Here are some helpful things to consider when writing:

  • Imagine you’re briefly telling a friend why they should read this. Why might they like it?

  • Is it fantasy? A mystery? Realistic fiction? A graphic novel? Describe the book a bit.

  • Did you have a favorite character, place, or moment in the book?

  • Have fun! Don't overthink it -- the best reviews try to capture the interest of the reader, give them a brief taste of the book, and leave them wanting more.

2. Want to be an Advance Reader? 

Publishers send out advance reader's copies of upcoming books to booksellers around the country, hoping someone will read the book and love it, and recommend it to everyone. We get far more ARCs, or galleys, as we like to call them, than our booksellers can read. To that end, we'd love to offer these books to anyone in the community who is interested in reading a galley and filling out the below feedback form. Once you submit one, you're welcome to come back to the bookstore for another galley. Thank you for giving us your feedback! 

To get started, come to the bookstore office and poke your head in. We usually have shelves of ARCs we're happy to share!
