Book Passage


A Leader in Bringing Books to Readers
Book Passage has been nurturing books, discussing books, and matching those books with customers for over 40 years. We love working with readers who may have their own book groups and their own favorite selections. If you can’t find the book you want on our shelves or by browsing through our search engine, please give us a call and ask one of our book experts to help you find what you want.

Book Passage President, Elaine Petrocelli, and head buyer, Luisa Smith, read through advance copies of new books that are about to be published and always come up with recommendations our customers will love. If you look back at the Elaine & Luisa’s Picks over the years, you find some of the best of American literature. Click here to find their latest picks.



If you collect books or want to be the first to read an exciting new author, this is the club for you. Since 2003, our First Edition Club has provided subscribers with signed first editions of some great new books. We highlight debut and unknown writers, and we’ve identified over 75 authors who have gone on to win the Pulitzer Prize, the Man-Booker Prize, the National Book Award, the PEN/Hemingway Award, and many other prestigious prizes. Click here to find out how to join.

Membership in the Aunt Lydia Book Club is a wonderful gift for friends and relatives, and an ideal choice for birthdays and baby showers. Our Aunt Lydia team surveys the tastes of gift recipients and sends them just the right book either monthly, quarterly, or as often as you want. It’s like having a personal shopper for bibliophiles. Each book comes gift-wrapped with a personal card to remind the recipient of your thoughtfulness. Click here to find out more.



We love to read books, but sometimes we love to listen to them as well. And sometimes, when famous authors are reading their own books, the experience is sublime. Book Passage has teamed up with Libro.fm to bring you a wide variety of highest-quality of audiobooks. Click here to see the great selection they are offering.

Sometimes there’s a book you feel everyone should read or one that you would simply like to provide to all of your customers or colleagues. Around here, these are often called B-2-B sales (‘business to business”), but sometimes the reach extends to other relationships.
