Thank you Haunted Bookshop staff! I received the two Christmas books. They are in such good shape, like new! You can tell you took care with the shipping as well. I will keep buying used books from you and highly recommend your shop to others.

The grandkids are going to love listening to these! This year we are going to do a Christmas book live listen party with hot chocolate, pajamas and all of us reading.
Received my copy of The Three Musketeers, the Penguin Graphic Novel cover version. It is in such better condition then I anticipated. I love it. Thanks Haunted Bookshop. Easy to order and friendly staff with the product exceeding expectations I highly recommend checking with them before buying used books anywhere else.
Literally still parked at Haunted Bookshop after getting my Surprise Me bag and this is what was in it! You have NO IDEA how on time both of these selections were. YES!

I cannot stress it enough: Support your local bookstore and they will know exactly what you need better than any online store’s algorithm! Thank you, Haunted!!

Love this Charley Harper puzzle...great right side up and upside down!
Thank you so much for doing the Mystery Bags!
Love the books I received!
Betsy, Baby and I so appreciated the care package from THBS today. In these remote times, we wanted to express our thanks for the extra special service and helping to feed Betsy's appetite for books. She is also looking forward to using her decomposition books to sketch, scribe and/or doodle.
Thanks Nialle Sylvan !

Logan took a break from his piano recital for some pets.
Go here every time I have to go to Iowa City. I love packed bookstores with there odd twists and turns, and this place is just that. Staff knows books well and if I have a list they seem to have some of the books I seek, or suggestions that have been real good.
Congratulations!

It's bitterly cold (and the door looks scuffed because we're having it repainted)... but the last patron to pick up books today brought a wreath, and we think it's just exactly perfect.

Have a safe, warm holiday, and may we all have a new year rich in health and happiness. πŸŒ²πŸ“š

This is a Corsi-Rosenthal Box, and it's the main reason we are reopening BROWSING BY APPOINTMENT.

MASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED πŸ˜·πŸ“šβ€οΈ

This air filtration device, developed by researchers to provide maximum air filtration in a home or workshop, has a 20" fan and 5 20" filters at MERV13, which is dense enough to filter airborne organisms.

Matching this with improved HVAC, a carbon dioxide meter, and the occasional open window will provide a safe space for limited, masked groups to browse.

We still require masks and handwashing, because you and we deserve to be virus-free.

(If the covid case rate climbs quickly, we will resume curbside-only service. Note that we have discontinued the deposit model for now, but we will ask anyone who pulls down a mask to leave. Our other visitors and our staff deserve to be safe.)

MASKS ARE STILL REQUIRED 😷
