BookTree's 1 Year Anniversary & much more

Can you believe we have almost been open for 1 year?   Thanks for welcoming BookTree to the neighborhood! 

I hope you'll help get the word out about our events as you can.  We can't afford to advertise and papers like The Seattle Times have less space devoted to books and bookstore events these days. We rely mostly on word of mouth and social media to let people know about our special events.  Feel free to share our Facebook Events on your social media pages.  If you blog - blog about Kirkland's only bookstore! 

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 fooling a soul.

- - Neil Gaiman

And of course remember to support your bookstore.  Books (new and gently-used) and BookTree gift certificates are great gifts for any occasion.   And you can get yourself a treat too!

Storytime Tuesdays!
 Our Next StoryTime will be on Halloween 10/31 at 11AM .

Books are the quietest and most constant of friends;
they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors,
