We are living the dream!
No, really, we are. I'm very proud to say that RiverRun Bookstore is now ELEVEN years old, and going strong. People always say "I've always wanted to open a bookstore" with a wistful look, like they would have done it if only they had drawn the lucky number, or found the golden ticket. Or they would have done it if it wasn't a completely crazy, quixotic endeavor in this modern world. Well we did it, and all it took was guts, and faith in our community.
When you come to RiverRun you'll find a staff of voracious readers eager to recommend quality new and used books of all types. Our display tables are covered with new releases, while our shelves are bursting with great backlist titles. Used books that seem barely read range in price from $7 to $12, and we even have boxes of $2 clearance specials.
We are a bookshop, not a gift shop, so there's not much here except books. However we do have some very nice journals, some excellent book lights, a small selection of cool gifts, and our own RiverRun T-shirts.
We have an amazing schedule of entertainment. See our events page, you wont believe it. We host more than 150 events a year! We're happy to mail you signed copies if you are unable to attend a signing but would like a signed book. We also have a Signed First Editions club of insanely high quality. Past selections have included Stephen King, Barbara Kingsolver, and Lorrie Moore.
The best way to get to know us is to check out our staff picks section. It's a good window into who we are.
We'd love it if you used the commerce area of our website to buy books. They will be shipped straight to your home. It would be one little piece of business that the big boys don't get, and we'd love you for it!
We help people publish their books using cutting digital printing technology. Easy, dependable, and local. More information here.
Sign up for our First Editions Club and get a signed book mailed to you each and every month. Authors in the last year have included such bestsellers as Michael Lewis, Stephen King, and Barbara Kingsolver. We feature fiction and non-fiction on all kinds of topics-- as long as it is a book that we think has real staying power. Each book is guaranteed to be a first printing of the first edition.
How much does it cost? Just the list price of the book, plus shipping. And if you sign up for a whole year, we will ship via media mail for FREE!
Guaranteed Satisfaction! Each month we'll let you know what book is coming your way, and give you a week to let us know you don't want it-- no penalty involved. Just because WE think each and every choice is a winner, we respect your right to disagree with us (but, really, you are SO wrong!).
Join now by calling 603-431-2100. Or even better, give a gift subscription for a loved one. A signed book in the mail every month! What could be better?
Books hand-picked just for you by our staff. Based on email correspondence with you we choose a book you've never heard of, but we know you will love, and send it straight to your mailbox. How nice to get something exciting in the mail! More information here.
