We work with all major publishers as well as many independents.  We read pre-publication galleys, book reviews, and order new books seasonally with our customers in mind. Our buying reflects our taste as well that those of our customers – no algorithms involved.  Here are some of our recent favorites.

Looking for something in particular?

Give us a call at 203 431-9100!  If we have it in stock, we’ll put it on hold for you. If we don’t have it, we’ll order it for you and let you know when it arrives.  We place orders twice a day, and most books arrive the next day (2 pm deadline). You can also email us at info@BooksontheCommon.com.

Unfortunately, because the company that we used for our online store has withdrawn from the wholesale-retail business, we no longer offer books or ebooks for sale on our website.  If you can’t come into the store, please give us a call and we’ll be happy to help.
