We have heard from you that you prefer to get books directly from us, so you're hesitant to use Bookshop. It's okay. We appreciate your concern, and we also want folks to get books in a timely and efficient way. Bookshop is the way to make that happen.   

Shop online at Bookshop!

Bookshop is a way to shop online while supporting indies! If you enter Bookshop through Mystery to Me's "portal," we get a portion of the order total. In a cost/benefit reality, we do benefit by having you order directly through Bookshop. The books never come to the store and we save on shipping and handling. Your books will be delivered to you in the mail in a few days' time, you don't even have to leave your house, and you support local business! 

Shop for audiobooks!

Similar to Bookshop, when you purchase audiobooks from Libro.fm, a portion of the sale goes right to Mystery to Me! Right now, in a heroic effort to keep indies like us up and running, 100% of each new membership comes comes right to us.


A number of you have asked what you can do to help. We are doing everything we can to get you the books you want and will continue to do so. However, we also want to continue to pay our wonderful booksellers and pay our rent. It's not an easy thing to ask for money, but if you are interested in helping, we welcome your support. You can donate at this link, and by clicking the green "Donate!" header above.
