| Welcome To Bluestocking Books |

Yay, April! It's spring, with  bright sunrises, new possibilities and inspiration in abundance... 

We are celebrating our Anniversary EARLY with 20% off everything in the store!  ----  !Also on our website -and- special orders!

Bluestocking Books turns 15 in May, but we want to start partying now!

*(not to be combined with other discounts, please). 

It's National Poetry Month and it's also the time we celebrate World Book Night, an evening when avid booklovers go out with free books to make new converts. We're also carrying the WBN 2014 books for sale, so that folks can discover these great reads. They are all 20% during April! -We'll be carrying most of the titles & we can special order more!

World Book Night  fun facts: In this its 3rd year in the US, WBN magic happens on Wednesday April 23rd. Givers will go out with specially printed free books for folks who know how to read but don't already do it for pleasure. WBN provides the books, then givers show up in all sorts of places, especially communities where there may not be bookshops and libraries. We're carrying many of these popular titles new- now 20% off! and we're a pick-up location for registered bookgivers. If you'd like to be a bookgiver next year or want a voice in determining which books will be chosen, be sure to check out their site

But wait! There's more: Join us for our World Book Night Reception on Saturday April 19 2-5pm. If you are a registered bookgiver, pick up your books anytime that weekend. All are welcome to come celebrate favorite authors, titles & plots, bestsellers & best obscure sleepers, favorite places to read in San Diego, anecdotes about that secondhand treasure stumbled upon at just the right time, and the triumphant spirit of reading.

"Hope is the thing with feathers / That perches in the soul / And sings the tune without the words / and never stops at all." - Emily Dickinson
