No more bricks, just clicks

Posted January 29, 2016

After working in and owning a bookstore for 20 years, I just sell online.  It is still fun being out on the hunt for good books and such a thrill to sell them all over the world.  What a brave new world in a good sense.

Fireside Books

We were a general bookstore for many years and have moved just online. We stock mostly hardbacks in the best condition we can find. We have lots of fiction, biography, history, and many other subjects. We hope you give us a look.

We were an old style real brick and mortar bookstore that has been online since 1998 and have recently gone strictly virtual. We choose our books carefully looking for things of general interest, specialized topics, or just for entertainment and work hard to describe our books in detail. We hope you will look through our books and find something to catch your eye.
