Please support our region’s local bookstores: Covid 19 has had a detrimental impact on independent bookstores nationwide. This year, it is especially important to get your book orders in early. Don’t wait until the last minute! And remember, ordering additional items such as cards, candles and toys, is a great way support your local bookstore  as these items have a higher profit margin than actual books.

Fabled Bookshop & Cafe in Waco

Member Naomi Canale works in Fabled Bookshop in Waco and says “Fabled Bookshop has many outdoor events going on and is an incredible place to shop for Christmas. The owners always do such a wonderful job of putting a lot of thought into each thing they put on the shelf.”

and a non-local one:

Cecilia Cackley, our May meeting guest who taught us the ins and outs of independent bookstores, works here.
