Hello Booklovers!

As you may already know, we are moving the bookshop from Burnt Store Road to a better location:

Address: 5240 Duncan Road, Punta Gorda, FL (near Galleria Mall Antiques)

Phone number stays the same: (941) 505-1624

Book Exchange: At this time we have paused trade-ins, meaning that cannot accept items for book exchange until after we move. With 158,000 books to move we just don't have the manpower to be processing incoming items right now. Of course, you may continue to use your trade balance in the same way that you have been.

Boxing Day: Sunday January 13th. If you would like to join our volunteer staff, email or call us and we will add you to the RSVP list. (Heavy lifting is NOT required for this task.) Of course, if you'd like to help on a different day, that's great too! Our volunteers can always use more helpers.

Moving Day: TBD - we will keep you posted. (Join our email newsletter for quick updates.)

Beloved Bibliophiles,

I have exciting news: we are moving!

We take customer feedback very seriously, and the most common thing we've heard over the years is that you'd prefer to avoid driving on Burnt Store Road. That's a tall order, but we listened to you! Our new location will be closer to downtown Punta Gorda, near Galleria Mall Antiques.

I'm excited to finally be able to share this project with you. (We had to wait on making the announcement until all the paperwork was officially signed. Thanks for understanding!) Now that you know, I can tell you about some of the awesome things we will have at the new location, including:

  • a bigger parking lot
  • longer open hours
  • lower prices on used books (due to lower cost of operations)
  • more gifts, puzzles & greeting cards
  • a more streamlined book exchange process
  • proximity to more restaurants (like Royal Thai, Peace River Seafood, Father & Sons Pizza)
  • What about book exchange? You will NOT lose your trade-in balance.

    Where? 5240 Duncan Road, Punta Gorda, FL.

    When? Early 2019. We will ABSOLUTELY keep you posted via email, Facebook, and our website.

    Why? To take advantage of the better location!

    What about the book arch? Not to worry – the book arch will come with us.

    What about Kitty-Wan Kenobi? He's coming too, of course!

    How can I help? DO SOME SHOPPING! We ordered our usual annual holiday gift items, so we have lots of options for Christmas shopping as well as our usual amazing selection of used and rare books.

    Or, if you are interested in helping us do onerous tasks like pack boxes, our volunteer staff will be THRILLED to have more help. Just ask for a volunteer application and we will get you on board ASAP. The more, the merrier!
