Celebrating 40 years of independent bookselling in 2013!
Moscow, Idaho is the Heart of the Arts. As an integral part of the community, BookPeople's mission is to serve readers and writers of all ages with a handpicked selection of great books, a variety of events, and an inspiring place in which all are welcome.
We love to see you in the store, and our website is another way that we can serve you. You can support your favorite independent bookstore even if you live out of town, prefer e-books, or can't get to downtown Moscow as often as you'd like. Shop for books using the search engine on the right, and at checkout you can choose whether you'd like the books to be shipped to you (in Moscow we can deliver them via bike courier), shipped to someone else (gift-wrapped!), or just have them prepared for you to pick up in the store.
Penguin is one of our favorite publishers. They have so many great books in lovely editions, in hardcover and paperback, at affordable prices. During June, just in time for summer reading, we have several Penguin displays, and several opportunities to get a free Penguin tote bag. We also have free annotated listings of all Penguin classics, free samplers for World Noir from Europa Editions, and free samplers for What the World is Reading. You'll want to check out the Penguin classics in the literature section as well. Please stop in the store to see all the beautiful Penguins (we love the new "Drop Cap" hardcovers in a rainbow of hues) including special hardcover editions of books by F. Scott Fitzgerald with glittery dustjackets, like the most beautiful shirts you've ever seen.

You can sign up for 5 days/week, 6 days/week, 7 days/week, or choose just one or two particular days, such as Sunday, or a weekday or two.

Papers will be at Bookpeople of Moscow unless you make arrangements to pick it up regularly at One World Café. If you ever pick up your paper at One World for any reason BE SURE to show your card.
The NYT cover price is $2.50 for weekdays, and $6 for Sundays. Our subscriptions are a very significant discount off those cover prices.
We will hold papers that are not picked up for a maximum of two weeks. If you don’t pick up your paper or if the paper doesn’t arrive for any reason (weather etc) there will be no refunds, credit, or extensions. With this good of a deal we have to keep it simple.

Our store's shelves aren't big enough to hold every book in the world...so during the school year we special order books for our customers at least 3 times a week! (In the summertime, we special order once or twice a week.) In the majority of cases we can get books within 2 to 3 days, but to avoid disappointment it is always best to order a couple weeks before you need it. Sometimes a book will take a week or two, and if it is difficult to find, out of print, out of stock, or from a very small publisher, it might take several weeks. If you're in a hurry, we can let you know whether or not we can get it in time, before you have to commit to the order. We don't charge extra for special orders (unless you request an extraordinarily fast shipping speed), and take pride in our ability to get you what you want, without any hassle. You can place special orders in person at the store, or use this website to special order your books, indicating that you'll pay for them and pick them up at the store.
