The Top Twelve of 2019

It was a great year for books- and bookstores! Both stores had their best years ever and we thank each and every one of our customers for supporting an independent bookstore when you have so many other choices available. As usual, our top books at each store overlapped and many had strong local ties- including our number one book in Manteo which wasn't even published until December 15 and by New Year's Eve had BLOWN away the competition! Our Top 10 lists have a wide variety of titles- including a few national best-sellers- and are a great place to turn to when you 'need something to read, but don't know what to read'.. as always, books ship for just .99 each and that warm, fuzzy feeling you get when shopping small is absolutely FREE (and priceless).
