Grateful for Our TPB Community

'Tis the season to express gratitude, and boy, do I have plenty of people to thank! Since April, I have been the point person for our Books to Students Fund, an ongoing fundraiser to support students across the greater Seattle area during the COVID-19 school closures.

Happy Indigenous Heritage Month!

To celebrate Indigenous Heritage Month this November, we collected a list of amazing books by Native and Indigenous authors that have been shaking up the literary world in the last couple years. From the genre-bending brilliance of Split Tooth by Tanya Tagaq, to the wonder and whimsy of Darcie Little Badger’s Elatsoe, the inventiveness, modernity, and sheer talent of these writers is what makes us booksellers excited to do our jobs.

We’ve got you covered with a list of your favorite classics paired with modern titles to help you find some great, new reads for the young readers in your life.

If you like spending October watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Hocus Pocus, and Halloweentown - this list is for you. I love all the nostalgic, Halloween vibes with minimal spooks. These books feature all sorts of "monsters" from cute ghosts to angsty vampires to snarky witches. I hope you're able to find some joy and comfort in these autumnal and atmospheric books this spooky season. I also highly recommend watching ParaNorman, Scooby Doo, Vampire Diaries, and Teen Wolf. Happy Halloween!

“[Horror fiction] shows us that the control we believe we have is purely illusory, and that every moment we teeter on chaos and oblivion.”

We are so excited to celebrate Latinx authors, and the contributions they make to the literary world!

In fraught times, it is important to celebrate the diversity that truly makes this country great. And I may be biased as a bookseller, but what better way to celebrate than to read? This list pulls from lots of genres and experiences -- from hard-hitting, topical memoirs, to delicious gothic spook-fests, to fun, vibrant romance. Pick up any of these, whether you're looking to see yourself represented, or to gain insight into an experience outside your own!

Usually, Independent Bookstore Day involves a few more events than it does this year, but that doesn’t mean we love it any less!

Do we miss the prize wheel? Stamping passports? Blackout poetry? The photobooth? We do! We miss it all so much! But most of all, we miss seeing all of you, and hearing about your bookstore adventures -- and, of course, recommending you our favorite books.

So here’s a list of some of the books we wish we could put in your hands on Saturday -- and don’t worry, Indie Bookstore Day will be back next year!

I don't know about you, but I could really use a laugh or two...or a million... right now. But with such serious and important topics occupying our thoughts and newsfeeds, it can be difficult to dredge up any humor on our own.
