More intimate than a big box store or even the library, The Book Bungalow in downtown St. George will help you disconnect, browse, and indulge your senses the old fashioned way--using quiet, a comfortable chair, and your imagination.

If you want speed and discounts, stick with Amazon. Remember, however, that a better experience is worth more. if you want to slow down, explore, and discover new worlds, The Book Bungalow is your perfect refuge. As you find a book, turn the page, and settle into one of our comfy chairs, your body will sigh in relief, grateful for the respite.

 

COVID-19 Update:

We're still requesting the use of masks while in the store (we'll be wearing them too, of course).

Daytime and evening events are still being held virtually, so if you're interested in taking part and aren't intimidated by the Zoom platform (you really needn't be--it's as easy as clicking on a link and entering the provided password to join in on an event), please contact us so we can keep you apprised as events are scheduled. We're hoping to resume normal, in-person events by the middle or late summer. If enough people get the vaccination and continue to mask up for now, that will be possible.

FOR THOSE STILL LEERY OF STOPPING BY, WE CONTINUE TO SELL BOOKS BOTH ONLINE HERE AND BY PHONE (435-619-8200).

In fact, you can find lists of Recommended Titles here.

IF YOU ARE LOCAL, WE WILL PROVIDE FREE CURBSIDE PICKUP.

If you don't live in the St. George Metro Area (which includes Washington, Ivins, and Santa Clara) or you're gifting to someone outside the area, we will send your purchases by media mail.

A Haven From Your Worries

Readers and Writers Now Have a Place to Gather

You can come simply for the books, with new discoveries in almost every genre. You can come to meet as writers or to discuss your latest book club pick. You can participate in writing workshops, poetry readings, kids’ story time, TED Talk discussions, music nights, and author presentations and signings. You can even compare reviews of the latest bestsellers or simply talk books with the Bungalow staff.

A Town Isn’t a Town Without a Bookstore

That’s what Neil Gaiman wrote in American Gods: “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 foolin’ a soul.”

Believe it or not, The Book Bungalow is one of the first bookstores in all of Southern Utah offering new books and all the events associated with literary life. We have wonderful libraries in St. George and surrounding communities, but even libraries can only do so much. There is a used bookstore in town that provides a valuable service, but it offers no opportunities to gather, to pull readers and writers together.

The Book Bungalow wants to do just that--serve as a meeting ground for book lovers and artists, as well as musicians and actors. We want to instill a love of reading and literature in our youngest citizens and watch them grow up and bring their own children to our store. We want to forge strong bonds within our own community and draw in residents of Santa Clara, Ivins, Washington, and beyond. Indeed, we aim to be the literary soul of Southern Utah.
