Through January 2016 we are continuing to collect books for 1-5 years olds!! Reach Out and Read is a national program that distributes books to kids who need them through their pediatrician's visits, and parents educated on the importance of reading and brain development! This year our books gathered are going straight to the UCSD High Risk Infant Follow-Up Program.
BLUESTOCKING BLAST... A wee brochure/pamphlet/flyer that changes monthly with our book specials, recommendations for favorite places to read, independent business in the neighborhood that we especially dig , and what these booksellers are reading on our own time (as tempted as we are, we are not reading when we should be putting books out for sale... really!). If you are into this retro concept, or if you have friends or family who don't want to be bogged down behind blue screenlight reading a website, we have the Bluestocking Blast flyer for you!
We are carefully choosing magazines to provide best-sellers that our customers love. If there's a magazine you'd like to reserve on a monhly basis, let us know! Search our current offerings under keyword MAGS in our book inventory browser.
We have in new Anne Made greeting cards. Animal Art by Anne Davis. Nicely priced, whimsically illustrated, featuring dogs and cats who love books & pie. Come & see how cute a Rastafarian-inspired poodle & tuxedo cat can be!
Friends and neighbors, did you know...
Shopping at small businesses ensures that a higher percentage of the dollars you spend stay in your local community. Local businesses hire more locals, shop local themselves and tend to bank locally (we do!). This combines to generate more tax dollars that fund local schools and fix roads. This is good, right? Say yes, because half my friends and clients are teachers and librarians :D! Really, there are shopping studies that prove these facts to be true. And while you are googling that, don't forget to look up studies that show reading traditional books rather than electronic ones helps the attention span and costs less money overall!
When you shop with Bluestocking Books, you are funding three local gals who care about books, literacy, Hillcrest and you. We feel privileged to assist you and we love the community this bookshop provides: Unlimited learning, connecting to humanity and its creativity via the written word! We live in an era that has access to writing throughout history , so let's enjoy it - together! What we don't have in stock we are happy to track down and order for you Thanks for shopping locally, booklovers.
Catch the sounds of Hillcrest! Thanks to Jeff Smith for including Bluestocking Books in the Hillcrest edition of KSDS City Stories - and thanks to Sally Tinker Smith too!
