We are sorry to announce the cancellation of our March bookstore events until further notice. We’ve decided this would be in the best interest of public safety, and events will be rescheduled in the future. Our business has slowed but we are not closed. Book Beat will remain open: Mon.-Sat. 10 AM-7 PM and Sun. 12-5 PM. We plan to continue serving the reading needs of our customers and appreciate your continued support in these stressful times. “Shop Local, Live Local” is still our mantra. If you’d like books mailed out, please call us at (248) 968-1190. Stay Healthy, informed, and keep reading!
We have recently joined Bookshop.org, an online collective of independent bookstores. Our book catalogs can be viewed there at: Bookshop.org/shop/Bookbeat Book orders are filled quickly usually within two days by Ingram distribution.
