Audio Books

We have partnered with Libro.fm to offer audio books to our customers.  If you listen to books while driving, commuting, exercising, or doing other activities, here is a new option for you.  You will need to create a Libro account online and then download the app on your computer or device to listen.  

Your first month is $0.99 and then it costs $14.99 per month. The monthly fee equates to one audiobook credit which you can use at any time, for any of the 70,000+ audiobooks available on our Libro.fm site. You can easily listen on any device (phone, tablet, PC) as all Libro.fm audiobooks are DRM-free.  

A portion of your purchases will support us, your local bookstore.  If you have unused Audible credits, we can switch up to two of your credits to your Libro account for free!!


To all of my wonderful customers and friends over the last 32 years, I just wanted to say thank you. It has been a joy and a pleasure to be a part of your lives and the lives of your children and grandchildren. For a long time now I have said, The Bookstore has the best customers on the planet and after the evening of January 7th, in a dangerous and wretched ice storm, when so many of you ventured out to wish me well, it more than proved my point! Thank you for the kind words, the lovely thoughts and all of the beautiful cards, notes of “wisdom”, and gifts. You are all too kind.

      With warmest regards,

        Jane Stroh

Bookstore Pick of the Month - An American Marriage by Tayari Jones



"Haunting . . . Beautifully written." --The New York Times Book Review

Newlyweds Celestial and Roy are the embodiment of both the American Dream and the New South. He is a young executive, and she is an artist on the brink of an exciting career. But as they settle into the routine of their life together, they are ripped apart by circumstances neither could have imagined. Roy is arrested and sentenced to twelve years for a crime Celestial knows he didn't commit. 

This stirring love story is a profoundly insightful look into the hearts and minds of three people who are at once bound and separated by forces beyond their control. An American Marriage is a masterpiece of storytelling, an intimate look deep into the souls of people who must reckon with the past while moving forward--with hope and pain--into the future.
