Frequently asked questions
Do you accept book donations?
Yes! I love donations and am always accepting them. If you're local, reach out to me and we can figure out a drop off/contactless pick-up arrangement. If not local, contact me and I'll let you know where to ship :) I also let everyone know in advance that even if I don't keep all of the books donated to me, I always drop them off at a local thrift store so that they can hopefully find another new home.
Are you hiring?
I'm not currently hiring but boy am I flattered that you asked! :P
Can I forgo shipping if I live locally?
Definitely! Select the pick-up option at checkout and it will automatically forgo shipping. I am currently offering curbside pick-up at The Rochester Brainery.
What are the various tags found on some of the books?
I try to be cognizant of things that may trigger people so for certain books, I felt a content warning would be helpful!
How do pre-orders work?
I do pre-orders to ensure that I order the right amount of product and don't over buy. When you pre-order an item, it takes about two weeks for it to reach you. I try and make sure I give it enough time for all people to buy the item before it is out of stock and then I place the order on my end. If you ever have any questions about this, feel free to email me.
Do you make book recommendations?
I absolutely love doing this! If you'd like a special recommendation, you can purchase the Dealers Choice item in the store. From there, if you just leave me a little note at check-out about genres/themes/interests that you enjoy, I can try and find you a book that I think you'll love!
Do you have a physical space?
Not yet! I'm currently a small little virtual bookstore but the long term goal is to open up a physical space sometime in the future. For now, I host pop-up events at The Rochester Brainery. This is a way for my customers to come in and browse books in person and it also allows me to meet all of you amazing people! I often update on my Instagram for my next pop-up event so definitely keep your eyes open.
