Listen to Shades




Nothing beats a good book!  Regardless if you're traveling, taking a vacation, or simply lounging in the park - a good book makes a great companion and feeds the mind. 

We pride ourselves in our collection of over 300 books by African and African American authors. Most of our books are non-fiction but we are growing our children and fiction book section. Below is a modest list of books available to purchase (depending on our in-store stock count). We are in the process of adding all of our books and appreciate your continued patience.


If ever you are looking for a book that you do not see, please email us at with your name, title of the book, and author - we will order it for you if available.
