We officially closed our retail business on May 3rd.  Thanks to everyone who came out to say goodbye – your support, conversation and encouragement is appreciated. We will miss you!

Santoro’s Books will continue to fulfill bulk orders to schools and other organizations. We offer discounts, 21-day billing, and free shipping within the greater Seattle area. A minimum of 10 books (assorted titles) is required. You can still reach us at this e-mail address: carol@santorosbooks.com or this phone number: 206-784-2113. More details can be found in the School Orders section of our website.

The bookstore will reopen in early June as Phinney Books under the management of Tom Nissley and Laura Silverstein. (You may learn more about them in this article that appeared in Shelf Awareness.)

Frequently Asked Transition Questions

Santoro’s gift certificates must be redeemed by our last day of operation: May 3, 2014. That includes any store credits resulting from an exchange or return.

The owners of the new Phinney Books will continue the Frequent Buyer Program.

Quote of the Month

“I find myself drawn to literature more now than in the past; not the individual works as much as the idea of literature – the heroic effort and nobility of our human desire to make beauty of our minds – which moves me to tears, and I have to brush them away.”
~Ruth Ozeki,  A Tale for the Time Being
