Hours for the week of Jan. 25. I’ll be observing all safety protocols.

I’M BACK! AND I HOPE YOU WILL BE, TOO.

Portrait of Bonnie with cookbooks

It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 23 years.

Private shopportunities! If you would feel more comfortable being the only customer in the shop, please don’t hesitate to MAKE AN APPOINTMENT outside my regular hours. You can have a half-hour or one-hour slot at your convenience and not worry about sharing space with other shoppers. Please call me or send an email and we’ll set up a time.

GIFT CERTIFICATES can be ordered by phone or email. Make an investment in the future for friends and family who can’t shop in person right now.

THANK YOU to everyone who has visited in the past few months! To those who prefer to place email or phone orders, I’m still doing bike deliveries and curbside pickups as well as shipping books (as always).

I’m having no more than four customers at a time in the shop, and you may stay as long as you like if nobody’s waiting to come in. You’re still welcome to make an appointment (by email or phone) for any reason — if your schedule is tight, you have a special research project, etc.

Please come to the shop only if you’re feeling well. You must wear a mask while you’re here, but please do not wear gloves. I’ll offer you hand sanitizer when you arrive and before you leave.We’ll keep that all-important 6-foot distance from one another.

My hours are posted here, and you can also check them by phone. (But NEVER rely on what’s posted on Google—it’s invariably wrong.) Remember that my hours are not the same every week, and that’s especially true now. If you can’t come in during open hours, I’m happy to make an appointment for a time that works for you.

I know that many people spent their “lockdown” time sorting and culling their book collections. If you have books you’d like to sell (or donate), please read the guidelines in the right-hand column and get in touch with me before bringing them in.

Looking forward — to everything!
