Bookish is an independent bookstore.

We’re not backed by a big corporation. Our staff carefully selects each book in the store. We pay close attention to authors writing from the margin–and we champion those books. We whole-heartedly embrace our customers in all their brilliant diversity. Bookish positions itself as a bookshop focusing on diverse fiction and social justice oriented non-fiction–that’s at the core of who we are. But come in and browse–because we’ve got sci-fi & fantasy & mysteries & thrillers. And if we don’t have it, we can probably get it for you. We’re always looking to expand our curated selection to include books that have really meant something to our customers. If you think it should be on the shelf, tell us!

In addition to books, we’ve got a collection of goods handcrafted by local makers. We’ve also got journals. And games. Our stock changes frequently. And we always add a heap of fun stuff for the holidays.

If you’re in EAV, stop by. We’d love to offer a book recommendation or just chat with you about book nerd things. Y’all are welcome here. We can’t wait to meet you!
