Welcome to the home of Sleepyside Books. Please search or browse our inventory of hard to find, out of print, used, and rare books. If you can't find what you like please fill out our off-line search form and we will search our off-line inventory, other bookstores and book search services for you.
Sleepyside is Kathy Keil and Matt Kerste. Between us, we have roughly 30 years in the retail book industry, and we've spent about the same amount of time collecting (accumulating) books of all shapes and sizes. We want to make great books available to anyone who's looking---from recent titles to long out-of-print classics.
Spring has sprung, go sit under a tree with your new (used) favorite book!
Escape with a great book! Poke around the inventory--look at the our Signed Books
and our Interesting and Odd
section to find that perfect title. We've just written our first blog post here, looking back fondly at Tom Swift Jr. Take a look at our series books here
and let us know if there's something you're looking for that isn't listed. We take pride in describing condition accurately, and we ship promptly if you're worried about delivery times, please drop us a line. Times are tough all over, so we're extending a great discount offer--if your order totals $15 or more, you can enter coupon code V1TSER at checkout for 15% off your order! If you don't see something listed, ask--it may take us a day or two to unearth it, but we've got a lot of stuff around here that isn't yet priced and on the website.
Over the years, we've built up quite a diverse inventory of titles, focusing on modern first edition fiction and on collectible children's books. Browse around through our categories--you'll certainly find something interesting, probably something you didn't even know you were looking for.
It seems like we've been finding a bunch of weird stuff at sales lately. We don't know why, but we sell a lot of weird stuff we'd forgotten we'd acquired. You might think you don't need any of the things listed in that category, but you might be wrong about that!
Again, if you have any questions regarding a title, please let us know before purchasing. We are always happy to email a photo or three of any title in our inventory.
