Local Book Clubs

Local book clubs can register their upcoming reads with our program and be featured on this page. By providing Rivendell Books with your upcoming reads list well in advance, we are able to intentionally acquire extra stock of those on the list.  Readers can see the list of upcoming books, and click on the link to take them directly to the spot they can buy them, or if out of stock, be able to register to be notified when back in stock.
