WE ARE NOW OPEN FOR BROWSING AND IN-STORE PURCHASES, adhering to social distancing guidelines.  We also continue to offer curbside (call us from your car) or just-inside-the-door pickup .  We're also happy to mail book orders over $29.90 free to our customers during this time. 

If you're not signed up for our weekly email newsletter, the Grass Roots Reader, you can sign up here.  We also send out the new "Grass Roots Irregular" periodically to our subscribers with book trivia, new titles, and fun videos. 
Bargain Book Promotion

  1. Click on the green BROWSE button (upper left)
  2. Then select both What’s in store and Bargain Books.  You can also add Popular if you just want to look at our bestsellers.
  3. You can further narrow your choices by choosing a Subject  (look for the blue “+” if you want to narrow your search).  Then click another subject, and so on.  It is really fun & amazing to see what you can discover by using the filters!
  4. Once you have made your choices (you can also select Regular Stock- not on sale), go to checkout and under "Additional Information: Promo Code or PO #", enter the code: BB 3FOR2, then provide payment information as usual. Your online order total will not reflect the special offer; however, when we process your order in the store, we will reduce the total by marking the cheapest BB as “free” and charge you the correct amount.  We'll then email you that your order is ready for pickup. We're sorry, but we cannot offer free shipping on the Bargain Book sale.       *******
  5. And, if you want even more control, look at the options offered in the green box, top middle.  You can use the KEYWORD (Looking for something on Kale or France?) box to find unique titles or the FILTER & SORT box plus SORT BY to arrange titles by your preferred arrangement.   And the DISPLAY button gives you different ways and differing degrees of information.  Click on the covers for detailed information and sometimes a “more inside” option.
  6. Whew!  Lots of options, have fun!

Another option is to preview what is arriving soon For this, just follow the above instructions- only this time, choose What’s on Order instead of what’s in store.  IMPORTANT NOTE: watch the prices for the on order titles:  Bargain Books price should end in “8” (.98 or .48).  If it is anything else, it probably has not been shipped ( another 3 weeks or so).  You can expect the price to be approximately one-half of retail.  For the on order books, you can place an order and we will reserve a copy for you and give you a call when they arrive.  This is especially useful for single copies!
