About Centuries and Sleuths

Celebrating its independence in specialty bookselling for almost 30 years, Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore's atmosphere is warm and friendly, with oak/cherry bookcases, shelves clearly labeled with the historical era / topic, mystery, or related subjects of their books, and comfortable seating, inviting you to browse your chosen subject(s). You won't "get lost in the stacks", but you can definitely get lost in the books.

If you're unsure where to start, our knowledgeable, helpful staff will be happy to act as your guide through fact or fiction, history or mystery, and adults' or children’s books. We'll even giftwrap your book purchases upon request.

Often, you can discuss your opinion about a book with other like-minded (or not) readers, or even with the author who excited your curiosity, rapture, or dissent, because five different reader/writer discussion  groups meet here regularly; and we host frequent author and community events.

You can follow our events, order books online, and see "staff picks" of books we recently enjoyed, or our groups are discussing, on our web page, Facebook, or Instagram. Or sign up to receive our monthly newsletter.  By all means, get to know us better!
