We hope that you are all home, healthy and balancing the need to know the news with the need to tend your hearts and souls and those around you.
As you know, we are providing daily recommendations of books over the phone and via email. We are also mailing your online orders from our warehouse. The warehouse was overwhelmed this past week and so you may have had a delay in receiving your orders. By all reports, they are all caught up and hopefully things will proceed more smoothly on that front.
We hope that all are keeping well and starting to settle in to this new way of living. We continue to work under the assumption that we are an essential business and on what is best for all of us. So things are changing day to day.

According to Evans, they are currently “looking for good booksellers.”
