Open Tuesdays by Chance
Wednesday – Saturday, 12pm – 6pm
Talk with our staff when you’re in the shop, or call us at (402) 475-8663.
We’re happy to check our stock for specific titles you’re looking for.
We’re also happy to recommend books we think you’ll love.
Email and tell us about what you like & loathe.
We’ll select an assortment of books especially for you,
display them with clearly visible prices,
and send you a photo of the group so you can browse & choose books you’d like to purchase.
Providing this service takes time.
We greatly appreciate your patience if we don’t get back to you for a few days.
Our goal is to provide fast, quality service.
Sometimes, we’re managing a great volume of inquiries and giving attention to each.
~Shopping In the Store~
We have limited capacity during the pandemic.
If you would like to be guaranteed a shopping time, please call
We also let people in at the door
as long as we have room for good distancing – just knock.
If you are at high risk for covid, we are happy to schedule a private appointment for you.
Give us a call.
ALL customers must wear a mask they bring,
fitted, non-latex gloves we provide,
and allow us to use a forehead-swipe thermometer to make sure they only have Book Fever. 😊
Our site has the tiniest fraction of our inventory.
Call (402) 475-8663 for personal service
and to place your order.

They are sure to find new, loving homes.
