Audiobooks that support your bookstore
The year was 1939. A gallon of gas cost 10 cents, the top song was “Over the Rainbow,” and Barrett Bookstore opened for business in downtown Stamford. The story of Barrett Bookstore is really the story of small businesses everywhere. The first indication of change for the store occurred in the 1970’s when Stamford’s Town Center was built, taking away most of the foot traffic that had sustained the store in its Summer Street location. David Rose, who owned the store for over 30 years, decided to move to a new location on High Ridge Road in Stamford. Away from the mall, and in a location with easy car access, the business flourished in the 1980’s. During that time, Rose decided to expand and purchased the Book Shelf in Goodwives Shopping Center in Darien. The shopping center was sold and renovated, and soon, rents skyrocketed. Rose decided in 1989 to relocate the Darien store to its current location in Noroton Heights. When Borders moved in virtually next door, the High Ridge Road store was closed. In 1997, the business was sold to the Daleys. Since taking over the business over twenty years ago, the Daleys have twice expanded the store and substantially increased the staff and the inventory. With a strong commitment to customer service, a knowledgeable friendly staff, and a pleasant shopping atmosphere, Barrett Bookstore remains in business thanks to loyal customer support.

“Medie’s use of multiple perspectives in telling this story of cousins Akorfa and Selasi is extraordinarily effective. We hear their stories from Akorfa’s perspective, then from Selasi’s, and finally from their combined perspectives after they have learned hidden details of each other’s life. Privileged and with a sense of entitlement, Akorfa grows up viewing the world very differently than much-less-privileged Selasi does. They grow from inseparable girls to estranged women who come face to...”Nancy • Raven Book Store
“I was awed by Michallon's ability to create such vivid portraits of every character in this book, while keeping the tension so taught, I had to remind myself to breathe. The "family man with a dirty secret" trope is not new, but giving all the power of storytelling to the victims in the killer's sphere, was fresh. That in combination with Michallon's atmospheric writing make this a must-read thriller. ”Destinee • East City Bookshop
“The women have finally had enough. They have all been wronged in some way by Jamie Spellman even if one of the seven has yet to acknowledge this fact. They begin meeting to discuss their pain and hurt and hopefully to find some way to get back at him....Then they receive a call from an anonymous number to meet in the secret room they have been using because of an undisclosed emergency...This clever but definitely dark mystery is told from 7 points of view of the women who knew Jamie, plus...”Nancy • Fiction Addiction
“Ander & Santi Were Here is the queer YA book the world needs right now. Filled with so much queer joy, profound queer love, and delicious Mexican food, it'll warm your heart, bring tears to your eyes, and make you want some tacos ASAP. Avi Roque's narration brings all the characters, but Ander in particular, to brilliant riotous life, and the depiction of immigration injustice will ensure Ander and Santi get lodged in your head just as much as your heart. ”Lauren • Chapterhouse Books
“This fun and quirky audiobook is the perfect listen for summertime. I can always count on Katherine Center to deliver a great “beach read” and this one is no different. When a portrait artist all of a sudden finds herself unable to see faces - including her own! - her entire life gets spun upside down. Great narrator, too! ”Madison • Saltwater Bookshop
“This book rocked me to my core. Adjei-Brenyah's writing is soul-shifting. He gives us a devastatingly unvarnished look at the US carceral system and a warning for what may to be come. The deep, multidimensional characters evoke empathy, empowerment, and sometimes disgust. I have never read a more evocative work of fiction. The audiobook is worth it for Singer's voice alone, but the entire cast is stunning. ”Grace • The Novel Neighbor
