Join us for scares, crafts, giveaways, and a visit/storytime with the Glendale Police Department! We'll be hosting a costume contest so come dressed up and be prepared to have your socks scared off!

Fresh Ink 

Kevin Henkes
Perennial favorite kids' author Kevin Henkes returns with a wonderful counting book full of color and joy. We're lucky enough to have a few signed first editions on hand right now, so hurry in!    
Rick Riordan  
The latest from Riordan offers a nice follow-up to the end of the Magnus trilogy. New in hardback and sure to be another huge hit from the master himself.   

Stacey Roderick & Kwanchai Mariya    
The newest in the Head to Tail series is a beautiful and fun addition that lets readers explore birds in vibrant, full-color glory!
You'll find this wonderful volume highlighting more than 30 incredible first-generation American immigrants in our juvenile biography section. With full color artwork, FIRST GENERATION features notable names such as Halima Aden, Adriana Ocampo, Marcus Samuelsson, and Yo-Yo Ma.   
The Dreadful Tale of Prosper Redding  
Alexandra Bracken 
This is a novel we've been looking forward to for a very long time. The marketing campaign for #1 best-seller Bracken's newest book has been extensive and we can't wait to finally hold it in our hands! Fans of the Serafina series will find an instant connection with this fantasy of 4,000-year-old evil monsters, changelings, and more!     
A coming-of-age story of mental illness, bullying, hate, forgiveness, and how our wrongness can be overcome. For those who liked books like Lions & Liars but are ready for something a bit heavier, this is a great middle-grade read.  
Escaping from Houdini (Stalking Jack the Ripper #3)
Audrey & Thomas have already taken on 'Jack the Ripper' and 'Dracula' and now they have their eyes set on...Harry Houdini? Young women are vanishing on a massive cruise ship. Trapped on board with a killer, if the duo wants to save the next victim, they have to fight magic with magic. #3 in this bestselling young adult series.    
David Baldacci 
The latest Amos Decker novel is as riveting as Baldacci gets. Horrific murders are destroying a small town to which Decker has deep ties. Now he has to stop the killer before his own family members become victims. 
To celebrate the upcoming release of the fourth book in the Miss Peregrine's Peculiar Children series, MAP OF DAYS, from Ransom Riggs (available October 2), Quirk Books is giving away these lovely bound journals. All you have to do to get one in your peculiar hands is buy any book in the series. We only have a few journals, so get in before they are all gone!

 Discounts for All
It's no secret that the book industry is a competitive one and that the cost to run a business has increased over the nearly fifty years The Bookies Bookstore has been a Denver tradition. As those costs have evolved, we've strived to evolve with them and adapt to give our customers the best experience and service with the best discounts. To that end, we're changing our discount model to be a more comprehensive and clear one. Starting October 1st, 2018, our discount will be a base 10% on purchases (exclusions apply). We hope this change simplifies the transaction process for all our customers.
