Book TV online

One thing I used to enjoy is watching BookTV on Cable TV on the weekends.  Book-TV highlights non-fiction authors, and the events take place all over the country. It is no longer shown on our local Comcast cable- but the shows are available online at http://www.booktv.org

All of these books are listed on our website - cut and paste the book title or isbn# (starting with 978) into the Book Search box. It will tell you if we have the book on hand in Village Square Booksellers, or if it is available at our distributors. We order twice a week, with most books coming in the next day. Items can be picked up at the bookstore or we can ship them out.      Podcasts of previous broadcasts

Our Website

Welcome to Village Square Bookseller's  "e-commerce-enabled" website. You can research books on our site, & you'll see if we have the book in stock.  1-5 days delivery time = available at our distributors

Books can be picked up at the store, with all payments made at the store as usual.  So there's no reason to worry about putting your credit card number online for local pickups. If you do want to have a book shipped to you, you can place an order and enter your credit card info on our SSL-secured payment system. 

Direct-to-home system: Books can be ordered & paid for in the store, books can be shipped to a friend or family-member out of town.  It can even be gift-wrapped!

We will sell our paper notecard gift certificates in the bookstore.

I'm always learning how to use our new American Bookseller's Association "Drupal" site.  It's a Content Management System, so it can be accessed by our staff from any computer utilizing a web browser. As time goes by we'll continue to learn more about it and add new features. 

Go ahead and create an account. And be sure to email us if you have some book suggestions - favorite authors you'd like us to highlight, or topics we should cover.

That's all for now.
