Gift Certificates are available for any amount, never expire and are
good on all books & merchandise in our store. All Gift Certificates are
written by hand. Gift Certificates of $25 or higher value come in a
beautiful sleeve of handmade paper embedded with wildflower seeds, which
can be planted in a sunny spot.
Established in 1991, our store has an ever-changing collection
of used, rare & out-of-print books on two floors. You can find
everything from paperback Mysteries to SIGNED First Editions,
Leather bound books, Scholarly Non-Fiction, Cookbooks,
Children's Books & much more. We're located in downtown Lincoln
- just a few blocks from the University of Nebraska
Come explore our labyrinth of books! Our staff is friendly,
knowledgeable and can help you find books you'll love. Padric &
Eddy, our feline staff, are likely to be lounging on the rugs or
sleeping in the windows.
Current news: 1/9/18: Today, we bought 11 boxes of
books at a housecall. Keep your eyes on our New Arrivals shelf.
Many of those books are being unpacked and priced.
We also have LOTS of new projects in the works for 2018,
including The (Occasional) Sunday Show & Share Book Club.
Realizing that we need more opportunities to interact with each
other face-to-face, we're going to start hosting an event every
now & then. We'll provide coffee and orange juice. Folks are
asked to bring a book they love (or are currently reading) and a
travel cup (for the coffee/juice).
We'll take a little time to go around in a circle. Everyone will
have a few SECONDS to show their book and say a little something
about it. BREVITY here is key. After we all have a turn, we'll
break the circle and then folks can enter into longer
conversations about the books they brought. They can also mill
around the shop looking at books - and they can buy books if
Our inaugural meeting will be SUNDAY, January 28th at 1pm for
circle. I'll close up shop at 2:30. ALL are welcome - from tiny
tots to venerable elders. One of the goals is to create an
activity in which everyone can participate. (Children under 12
must be accompanied by an adult.)
Each week, we post a photo of our New Arrivals
section. To view the most recent photos, click
post New Arrivals photos to our Facebook page, where
customers call "dibs" on books they would like us to hold
for them by commenting on the photos. To be one of the early
birds, be sure to like us
