August Bookstore News

Dog Days of Summer:
Up to 20% Off

The Dog Days of Summer have us thinking about our furry, feathery and scaly friends. We really enjoy a good story of animal antics. So bring them in to The Bookstore — your stories AND your animals.

In August, we’re celebrating pets. Stop by with your pet and meet us in person – or show us a photo of your favorite animal companion (real, stuffed or imaginary) - and you’ll  receive 10% off an animal-related book in August. 

We’ll have a display of pet-related items in our window honoring our beloved animal friends in early August. Remember to bring in Fido, Fluffy or Fang (or a photo) for your discount any time in August. 

Even better, share a photo of yourself or someone in your family reading to your pet companion for our website & social media use in August, and we’ll give you an additional 10% off an animal-related book, bringing your total discount to 20%!
