We're Taking Used Books Again

  • Posted on: 24 August 2017
  • By: readersbooks

We've finally have enough room to look at taking used books for store credit. But please no more than 2 bags at a time.  We cannot return books to you--we do not have storage space; anything we cannot use will be donated to the local thrift stores or the Library sale. You will earn 30% of the price we will ask for your book--usually about half of the original price--so a $10. new book will be priced at $5 and you will earn $1.50 in credit.  Hardback books are usually priced as if they are paperbacks--between 8 and 10 dollars.  We do not take rare or antiquarian books.

Lynn Freed reads from "The Last Laugh"

  • By: readersbooks

Sonoma’s own Lynn Freed has written a gem and will be at Readers’ Books on Thursday, 7/13 at 7pm to read from her new book, The Last Laugh. It’s the story of three "mad old bags" who decide to vacation together on a Greek island to get away from their kids and grandkids and day-to-day entanglements. A serious and silly look at women on the edge of old-age, celebrating lifelong friendship, family, work and play.

Paula Wolfert and Emily Kaiser Thelin in conversation Saturday 4/22, 2pm

  • Posted on: 13 April 2017
  • By: readersbooks

In special collaboration with Kathleen Hill and the Last Wednesday Food Group, we are welcoming Paula Wolfert and Emily Kaiser Thelin on Saturday 4/22 at 2pm. Their book, "Unforgettable" chronicles Paula's foodie journey from New York, to Morocco, to Sonoma, and finally to battling dementia. We sold out of the initial shipment of books almost immediately, more have since arrived, but judging by the interest we will have a full house on Saturday. We are honored to have this opportunity and hope you will join us. Please note that there will be limited seating.
