Your Favorite Books

Hundreds of our friends and neighbors have taken part in our Favorite Book poll. The titles make a wonderful, eclectic collection. Stop by the front window to see what your friends and neighbors are recommending. Once the books come out of the window, they're shelved with a "Customer Favorite" tag. Look for the tags when you need a good recommendation.

Join a Bookclub! It's free to members, and you'll get 10% off the current book. All meetings at the Magic Tree. See our "Events" page for a complete listing. If you have an idea for a bookclub, let us know! Let's get it started!
