COVID-19 Update: August 2020 business plans

Bookworks' doors are still closed to the public for browsing. You can still buy online at, including books, games, and gifts. We are offering free shipping promotions on our website. In AUGUST 2020, we are offering curbside service at our physical location on Saturday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 10-2 and Wednesday from 2-6 pm. 

Please continue to place your orders online. And if you prefer curbside pick-up, select "in store pick up" When orders are received we will call/email when your order is ready for pick-up, this will take approximately 1-2 weeks. Not all warehouses have all books in stock, so we have to place separate orders for each warehouse.

When arriving at the parking lot, please stay in your vehicle, and call us at 505-344-8139. Please, pop your trunk so we can bring your order out to you, and still maintain appropriate social distancing.

Please note that since the store has benn closed for browsing for many weeks, our shelves are not full, and nearly all your purchases will need to be ordered. If you prefer to continue to have your orders sent directly to your home, please select the various "shipping" options available. We are offering free shipping on orders of $40 or more starting today through May 7th. Free shipping is media mail and is running approximately 5 to 10 business days. The code at checkout is FREESHIP40 Our distributor is extremely busy processing orders for independent bookstores across the country and running a couple days behind processing orders. They are doing their best to speed up this process.

We appreciate your patience as we respond to all the uncertainties of the last weeks, and those to come. Thank you for your orders and support!

Your web orders are crucial during this time, so please try our service and see how it compares to other online book purchasing sites. We have many new sales pages, with puzzles, games, toys, and all ages and types of book recommendations.

Sign up for our enewsletter here. We will be sending email blasts with suggestions for both adults and kids.  Please stay tuned to our social media, especially our Facebook page and @BookworksABQ on Instgram to see what kind of virtual events and staff recommendations we have for you.
