Plant Based Skate

    Two of our favorite things…reading and skating (but, mostly not at the same time)! Saturday, March 23rd, we’ll be at Markham Roller Rink! Strap on your quads, stretch out your skate legs and join us at the Plant Based Skate and Vegan Market. We have a great selection of books celebrating plant based living. From kitchen exploits for the experienced and the frugal to tomes on home gardening,

Surprise Story Time

  We are back to host a few events for February! Join us for Beverly author Quentin Forberg’s reading from his debut collection For Februus in Hiding on Friday, February 15th at 7pm. A perfect event for Valentines weekend as Forberg’s stories center around his search for peace in a world that is chaotic and sometimes cruel. It will definitely give you much to think and talk about over dinner.

Book Advent Calendar

Are you following us on social media? If you are, you’ll know we are celebrating 25 books in our #bookaday Advent Calendar. These 25 titles are ones we’d like to see under our own tree to read over the holiday break and into the New Year! It’s not as if we don’t already have a huge TBR pile, but we honestly just can’t resist! Maybe we can get our reading

Grand Opening!

Thank you all for joining us at our Grand Opening celebration! We had such a great time seeing our friends and supporters as well as getting to know some of the wonderful families and community members of Beverly. The catalyst for opening Bookish was a love of books AND a desire to talk and share literature with a diverse group of people. We are happy to have found a home

Warm Welcome

What great neighbors! We’ve had such a good time getting to know everyone in our new community! From getting coffee (daily) from B-Sides Coffee + Tea, enjoying the conversation at Cakewalk Chicago, smelling chocolate from Sweet Freaks, and looking at the great fashion at Capsule, we are overjoyed to be a part of the 99th & Wood business district! Can’t wait to meet the rest of our new neighbors!!

5 days and counting!

What can we do in 5 days? Put an entire store together, that’s what! Bookish will be popping up on Wednesday, November 7th. For the next five days, we’ll be on a mission to transform our empty space into a literary experience. Gloves? Check! Tools? Check! Music? Check! Fear of ladders? Let’s put that aside for now! Follow us on social media to view our transformation, then visit us at
