Shop with Your Pod: Thursday, December 17

Don’t want to wait in line outside? Want more control over who you’re sharing indoor space with? Want to make sure you get your holiday shopping done easily and early? Shop with your pod!


Reserve Porter Square Books from 6PM-7PM on Thursday, December 17, after the store has closed to the general public for the day, for a group of 5 people.


One bookseller will be your concierge for the evening, checking your group in at the door, answering questions, giving recommendations, and helping you find books.


Important Info:

The $50 reservation fee can be applied to any purchase or purchases that night.

All of the store’s policies, including requiring masks and the use of hand sanitizer on your way in, will still be in effect.

4-5 booksellers will also be in the store along with your party. If you have any questions about our safe shopping policies, feel free to email

If you show up with more than 5 people, well, we’ll let you figure out which 5 come in. 

We will be in touch with specific information and to confirm your group’s attendance after you have placed your order.


If there is no "Add to Cart," button next to the reservation it means someone else has already purchased the Shop with Your Pod for this date.


Any questions, please email
