Although we maintain a general stock, Bookeathers is especially interested in academic works in the arts, sciences and humanities.
Bookfeathers, LLC is an online bookstore located in the Central Susquehanna Valley at Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. We maintain a general stock, with particular interest in the arts, humanities and sciences. We are also interested in works of local interest and history, pretty much regardless of location. Bookfeathers wants to make online browsing as close as possible to shopping in an actual store. Consequently, we describe items conservatively to a fault, and classify books using a broad range of keywords. Most images we display are scans of the actual items described
