Welcome to BookPeople of Moscow!

BookPeople of Moscow has been the Palouse region's favorite independent bookstore since 1973. Locally-owned and operated, BookPeople of Moscow features a variety of high-quality fiction and non-fiction for readers of all ages, a wide selection of gifts, journals, puzzles, calendars, greeting cards, and certified bean-to-bar chocolate. BookPeople of Moscow staff members pride themselves on providing excellent customer service, and we are proud to contribute to the cultural life of our community by hosting author events and serving as a community meeting place. Thank you for supporting your local bookstore.


Hello! The store is closed but we are working to get books to you. We can take orders over the phone at 208 882 2669, by email at bookpeople@moscow.com, or through this website at www.bookpeopleofmoscow.com. We've been doing e-commerce regularly on our website for 7 years now and intend to fully meet this opportunity/challenge to take our online service to the next level. Please click here for answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Our book distributor is shipping books to us daily from their warehouses around the country. That means most books will be available for you within a couple of days after you order them from us, as always! We also have a great selection of books in stock. Over the coming days and weeks, we will be making it easier for you to virtually "browse" the store on our website. Watch for these updates soon!

Personalized shopping recommendations for children are available from staff member Eija at bookpeoplekidlit@gmail.com

Delivery options are:
1) via USPS media mail for 99 cents on website orders over $30. Media mail is trackable, and as fast as priority mail in our local region.
2) Curbside pickup at either the front or back of the store.
3) Free delivery by bike each weekday in Moscow.
4) Free delivery by car twice a week in Pullman and other surrounding communities if there is enough demand.

When you are shopping online and wish to take advantage of our delivery service or curbside pickup option, please enter your delivery address and then you will be given the full menu of options from which you can select.

Thank you! 


Do you have grandchildren you'd like to send books to while they're cooped up at home? Are you a parent with kiddoes at home that are clamoring for new books to read? Either here on the Palouse or elsewhere in the country? We can prepare you a customized selection, according to their ages and interests! You can pick them up, or we can ship or deliver them for you. Email our children's lit expert Eija, at bookpeoplekidlit@gmail.com, or call the store at 208 882 2669.


You can easily order any book for home delivery or for in-store pickup, right here on this website. If it's in print and available for distribution in the United States, we can get it for you. Why not support your local indie bookstore and your community? Use the search bar on the right for something specific, or just browse new books available by clicking here.


We may be a small independent bookstore but that is all the more reason to do all your book pre-orders with us! We report our sales to the New York Times so your purchase through us can have a big impact on the success of a particular title. And, often we'll have special signed editions or exclusive giveaways available only through independent booksellers.

We'll keep posting upcoming releases here, so check back often. These books can be ordered through our website here or you can also call us on the phone, or visit us in person. And just FYI, it's our policy to collect full prepayment for preorders; it's the best way for us to serve you consistently and reliably.

Thank you for supporting your local indie bookstore!
