COVID-19 UPDATE:

OUR PHYSICAL STORE IS CLOSED FOR NOW. 
BUT:



Hunter Street Books now has:

Free Delivery in the
***
Peterborough City Area.***



PLEASE NOTE:
***WE WILL NOT DELIVER TO APARTMENT BUILDINGS OR ANY HOME OR OFFICE WE HAVE TO GO INSIDE. ONLY PORCHES OR MAILBOXES THAT ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE AND CONTACT-LESS, AND WITHIN THE CITY OF PETERBOROUGH.***


ALSO: I CAN NOT GUARANTEE TIMING ON ANY BOOK THAT IS NOT IN STORE -- BECAUSE OF THIS I HAVE SET MY WEBSTORE TO SHOW CUSTOMERS ONLY THE TITLES I HAVE ON HAND AND ON ORDER.

We would appreciate that you take chances on the books we already have (we have a great selection!).

I can not return phone calls right now. If you do need to phone, leave a message with your email address.
And leave any messages or special requests in the “NOTE” section of the webstore form.

 

Thank you for supporting a local business at this time and I hope we can satisfy all your reading needs. Our website and social media will be updated with any further changes. Hopefully, if everyone works together we can minimize the impact of Covid-19.


Thank you for all your support, 
Michelle Berry

"Weather" by Jenny Offill
New York Times Bestseller
From the author of "Department of Speculation" comes a ""darkly funny and urgent"(NPR) tour de force about a family, and a nation, in crisis."

"Offill's fragmentary structure evokes an unbearable emotional intensity: something at the core of the story that cannot be narrated directly, by straight chronology, because to do so would be like looking at the sun." The New York Times.

NEW RELEASES:
COMING SOON:
BUY A SCHOOL A BOOK
 
BUY A BOOK FROM OUR STORE AND DONATE IT TO ANY SCHOOL YOU PICK IN THE PETERBOROUGH AREA THROUGHOUT THE SCHOOL YEAR. WE WILL DELIVER FOR YOU.
 
Just come in or call or order online. Buy any book -- or order one --and we will take it to the school you suggest. We will also put a little nameplate in the book with your name so that the school knows who their gift has come from.
THE BOOK BOUQUET
 

Do you need an original and personal present for someone? Order a Book Bouquet. Three ($80) or Four ($100) beautifully wrapped and presented books, chosen personally by the staff at Hunter Street Books. We will include a brief note explaining why we picked each book. When you check out in the webstore let us know if you'd like a specific theme (Get Well, Happy Mother's Day, etc.) or a specific genre (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.). Or let us surprise you! Order online or come in and buy a bouquet. Give us a day to get your order ready and then pick up and deliver to that special someone! Or, if you are sending to someone far away, we would be happy to send by Purolator (charges will apply)!
