Bookshop's Response to COVID-19

Update: May 25, 2020—Governor Newsom has just announced that in-store retail shopping may resume statewide—but that reopening is subject to approval from county health departments. Currently, the County of Santa Cruz has not lifted those restrictions. In addition, in order to maintain the highest levels of safety for our employees and our customers, Bookshop will not resume in-store shopping until we feel like we have put into place all of the steps to make Bookshop as safe as we can be. Don't worry—you'll be the first to know when our doors reopen!

Greetings from Casey and the Bookshop Family, January 2020

Dear Readers,
January is the only month where I spend more time on the internet than I do reading, but that is only because I spend hours combing through all of "most anticipated" book lists of the upcoming year. The result is that I already have over 30 books on my pile that I desperately want to read—and that is only in the first half of the year! It should be a good year for books.

Greetings from Casey and the Bookshop Family: October, 2018

I am a book voyeur. I often think about those silly movies where someone (usually of the opposite sex) can hear the thoughts of others and it gives them a (so-called) profound sense of human nature. Funny enough, I don’t have much interest in hearing the inner thoughts of my husband, but I do have daydreams about hearing the inner thoughts of book buyers as they make their selections. Why did they pick that book vs. the other one? What was it on the back cover that grabbed someone’s attention? What moved that book group to make that selection?
