HOUSE OF BOOKS IS FOR SALE!
“There’s always a moment to begin a new story. There are no words that can properly convey to those of you – and you know who you are – who support the House of Books and have rallied for me these past 7 years. If you have the dream of owning an independent bookstore, please contact me. Neil Gaiman said, “A town is not a town without a bookstore,” and Kent wouldn’t be Kent without the House of Books. It has been Kent’s Literary Landmark for 43 years and my hope is that it will continue to be.
It has been such a great honor and an enormous privilege to own such a place of solace, curiosity, inspiration, and escape, and to recommend books to our dear readers. I hope you will continue your support of HOB in 2019.”
With my gratitude,
Robin J. Dill, Owner, House of Books

“Masterfully crafted, exquisitely written, and impossible to put down, The Flight Portfolio is an indelible tour de force from one of America’s most gifted novelists.”  Julie Orringer (How to Breathe Underwater, The Invisible Bridge) has written a gripping, emotionally powerful narrative telling the story of one young American’s quest to save the lives of artists and writers fleeing the Nazis after the invasion of France.  The Flight Portfolio is available here at House of Books.


“Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, David McCullough, rediscovers an important and dramatic chapter in the American story – the settling of the northwest territory by the dauntless pioneers who overcame incredible hardships to build a community based on ideas that would come to define our country.” The Pioneers is a uniquely American story of people whose ambition, courage and sense of high purpose led them to remarkable accomplishments. The Pioneers is available at House of Books.
