Used books: We are a used book store in person! Our selection is always changing, and we are devoted to the fun and serendipity of finding just the right book.

New books: Find us at https://bookshop.org/shop/thebookshelfif. When you purchase new books, the books will be shipped directly to you, and the Book Shelf earns 30% of the sale in the process. Just be sure your webpage says “The Book Shelf” in the upper-left corner. It’s a win-win!
