We're In This Together

Reading is not cancelled. Shop at This House of Books, your member-owned, indie bookstore & tea shop in downtown Billings, Montana

Reading Is Not Canceled!

We have included a second edition of book recommendations below, including a range of activity books for kids. All of these can be ordered via our website for direct shipment to your home, or you can select "Store Pickup Option" and put "Home Delivery" in the comments if you live in Billings and want us to deliver to you! Additionally, although our games, toys, and tea can't be ordered on our website, you can call us (406-534-1133), and we will take your order over the phone and deliver to you! 

We also still have some donations that are earmarked for sending books to people who need them—contact us if you know someone who would benefit!

Upcoming Store Hours

Although we closed at 4 o'clock on Monday, March 23rd, we will remain open from 10 in the morning until 7 in the evening for the remainder of this week to take your phone orders. However, stay tuned for reductions in hours as this situation evolves. We will announce them on our home page, via social media, and via this newsletter. If you want to subscribe, click the link above in the teal area for "NEWSLETTER."

In the meantime, please support our downtown neighbors who are offering food delivery and take-out! Two websites have been tracking which restaurants have these options available, although we recommend that you check with your favorites directly if you don't see them listed!
