readallsignWe love being Downtown Frederick’s independent bookstore. Here’s how we give back to our customers and our community:

We reward voracious readers. Join our Customer Loyalty Club – free of charge – and earn $10 off for every $100 spent on book purchases. Next time you visit, give us your name, phone number, and email, and we’ll add you to the club!

We can order the books you want – fast and free. Don’t see the book you’re looking for on our shelves? We’ll special order it for you at no extra cost. In most cases, special orders are ready for you to pick up within two to five business days. Ask our booksellers or email to check title availability and delivery time.

We’re here to help.
