Like us on Facebook and take 50% off all hardback books. One time only!

Our trade fee is 50 cents a book. While we love your trade books, due to our rapid rise in inventory, we can only process one box of trade-ins at a time. Please use that trade credit! Come down and browse our stacks for lots of exciting new books to choose from!

New Trade Policy beginning 1/1/15
Beginning January 1st, our trade policy will change. Trade credit will be applied toward 50% of your purchase. How does this work in practice? If you have $10 in credit and buy a $10 book, $5 will be taken off your credit and you will owe $5 plus tax. Please let us know if you have any questions about this change, and thank you for your continued patronage!


Upcoming Book Signings

On Saturday, November 15, award winning Rio Rancho authors Tomi Jill Folk and Hank Bruce will be selling and signing a selection of their books for children and adults, including Stasha's Secret Dream: A Hot Air Balloon Adventure, Children's Peace Garden, Lady Coffee's Autobiography, Enchanted by the Light: Celebrating Christmas in New Mexico, and Visits with the Old Indian Storyteller from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm. Lady Coffee's Autobiography has been nominated for 2014 New Mexico Book Award! For more information, please visit http://petalsandpagespres.weebly.com.

On Saturday, November 22, Bernalillo author J. L. Greger will be signing her new medical mystery, Malignancy from 11:00 am-2:00 pm. Malignancy is the fourth book featuring Sara Almquist. Men disguised as police officers shoot at Sara Almquist twice in one day. The Albuquerque police suspect Jim Mazzone, a drug czar who Sara tangled with in Bolivia, will order more on Sara. Thus, while colleagues in the State Department invite Sara to arrange scientific exchanges between the U.S. and Cuba, she jumps at the chance to get out of Albuquerque.
Maybe she should question their motives...
