WHERE YOU SHOP MATTERS, SO DON'T LET SMALL BUSINESSES LIKE OURS GET BOXED OUT!

Pandemic supply chain disruptions continue with labor shortages in publisher warehouses, printing capacity limitations, shipping delays, and a host of other issues. So, shop early and shop local--in person or online--then sit back and relax with a good book (or two) for the holidays.

An image of six panels listing 5 top reasons to shop Indie Bookstores, particularly during Amazon's Prime Day sales drive: 1) They promote literacy and creativity; 2) Revenue goes right into your community; 3) Indies are in danger of closing; 4) Meet with real people who sell books for a living; and 5) Attend events with local authors

More intimate than a big box store or even the library, The Book Bungalow in downtown St. George will help you disconnect, browse, and indulge your senses the old fashioned way--using quiet, a comfortable chair, and your imagination.

 

If you want speed and discounts, stick with Amazon. Remember, however, that a better experience is worth more. if you want to slow down, explore, and discover new worlds, The Book Bungalow is your perfect refuge. As you find a book, turn the page, and settle into one of our comfy chairs, your body will sigh in relief, grateful for the respite.

 

COVID-19 Update:

We've eased up some, but with the continuing spread of the Delta variant, we are still encouraging masks in our store and requiring masks for our vaccinated employees. But we won't turn you away if you remain unmasked, as long as we're not too crowded. (We have free masks available at both the front and back entrances of the store.)

We're hoping to resume more normal, in-person events soon after the new year, and feel sure that if enough people get the vaccination and continue to mask up for now, that will be possible.

OF COURSE, WE CONTINUE TO SELL BOOKS BOTH ONLINE HERE ON OUR WEBSITE AND BY PHONE (435-619-8200).

In fact, you can find lists of Recommended Titles here.

And if you don't live in the St. George Metro Area (which includes Washington, Ivins, and Santa Clara) or you're gifting to someone outside the area, we will send your purchases by media mail.

A Haven From Your Worries

Readers and Writers Now Have a Place to Gather

You can come simply for the books, with new discoveries in almost every genre. You can come to meet as writers or to discuss your latest book club pick. You can participate in writing workshops, poetry readings, kids’ story time, TED Talk discussions, music nights, and author presentations and signings. You can even compare reviews of the latest bestsellers or simply talk books with the Bungalow staff.

A Town Isn’t a Town Without a Bookstore

That’s what Neil Gaiman wrote in American Gods: “What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore, it knows it’s not foolin’ a soul.”

Believe it or not, The Book Bungalow is the only bookstore in Southwest Utah offering only new books and all the events associated with literary life. We have wonderful libraries in St. George and surrounding communities, but even libraries can only do so much. There used to be a used bookstore in town that provided a valuable service, but it closed a year after we opened in 2018. Now you would have to travel at least a half hour to find one in either Hurricane or Cedar City, and besides, they don't offer the same kind of opportunity to bring readers and writers together

The Book Bungalow wants to do just that--serve as a meeting ground for book lovers and artists, as well as musicians and actors. We want to instill a love of reading and literature in our youngest citizens and watch them grow up and bring their own children to our store. We want to forge strong bonds within our own community and draw in residents of Santa Clara, Ivins, Washington, and beyond. Indeed, we aim to be the literary soul of Southwest Utah.
