Dear Bookstore Friends,

This year has been one for the books. Like many small businesses, the last six months have been the most difficult in our history, but with your help, we made it through. During the time we were closed to the public, we reinvented our business and asked you to follow us and you did. You supported us, lifted us up, cheered us on, and we're grateful.

Now that our stores have reopened, sales are improving, but we're still a long way from normal. We don't know what the rest of 2020 will bring, but we do know this: It all comes down to the holidays. Our future depends on what happens in the month of December.

That's why we're asking you to shop local at Changing Hands and First Draft Book Bar this holiday season. By buying local instead of at chain stores and Amazon, you'll ensure that we ring in the new year together in 2021 and beyond.

We hope you'll mask up and visit, or get started online by ordering Changing Hands care packagesgift cardsaudiobook gift subscriptions, or one of the many new gift boxes we've rolled out this season—starting with Arizona Love—and our Remarkable Reads Book Bundles. Keep an eye on your inbox and our social media (@changinghands) for more in the coming days and weeks.

Ready to get started? We can't wait to see you. Click here for our expanded hours and to learn what we're doing to keep our staff and community safe.

With wishes for a safe and joyful holiday season,
Changing Hands Bookstore
