Events!   Changing Seasons



We have two events in December! First up with be best-selling Seattle author Maria Semple, talking with Bainbridge favorite Jonathan Evison, about her smart, funny new book, Today Will Be Different. Semple will be here Sunday, Dec. 4, at 3pm.


Then join us in welcoming Mary Ellen Hannibal  Saturday, Dec. 10, at noon. She'll talk about her excellent book Citizen Scientist: Searching for Heroes and Hope in an Age of Extinction. We see this as a book with an eye to the future, especially for young adults and older activists!



As we jump into the season of gift giving, festivities, and joy, we can't wait to share some great book ideas with you! Something to warm up with next to a fire, to grip you during a rainy commute, to read aloud to your favorite youngsters, or place in the hands of a friend.


We can't guess what our bestsellers this season will be, but there are a lot of great titles to choose from this year! Come in and talk to a bookseller, or browse our books here! We'll update this every few days with new gift ideas from our staff!




Please note we are not accepting used books in November and December 2016. We will open our doors to used books again on Jan. 2, 2017, after a two-month hiatus. We look forward to restocking our shelves with some great finds! So if your New Year Resolution is to pare down, bring in your gently used volumes between Jan. 2 - 15. We pay with trade credit to be used in the store!
