Our Store & All We Offer

More than Your Average Bookstore

Loving stories quickly turns into so much more than books. Not long after opening we found ourselves reviewing books, gathering them into gift bundles, finding furniture to read in, starting book clubs, wrapping blind dates, picking out bookish items… just to name a few. See what all you can find under the single roof of Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers.

Staff Reviews

We love books and we really love to tell you why. If you’ve seen the handwritten review cards that line our shelves in-store, this is the digitized version where you can browse and filter to your tastes.

Order a Book

Wanting a book you don’t see on our shelves? Never fear. We’re happy to place a special order for you. It works the same as purchasing from the shelf, it just takes about a week longer. Work through the order form linked below and we’ll call you as soon as your book is ready at Auburn Oil Co. Booksellers.

Order a Bundle

Give us some details and a budget, and we’ll do the shopping (and wrapping) for you!

Join the Reading Challenge

12 books in 12 months. We give you prompts and you pick the books. It’s that easy, but it’s a whole ton of fun. If you haven’t started yet, that’s OK! You can submit your books at any point during the year.

Story Time

Sharing our love of reading is our favorite thing to do. And sharing our love of reading with our littlest readers? Well, it doesn’t get better than that! Every Tuesday and Saturday morning at 10am, one of our booksellers reads through a big stack of children’s picture books. Then we end the festivities with kid-sized cookies. This is a free event we love love love doing!

Book Clubs

Our book clubbers show up with a desire to discuss… most even read the book! We provide moderators to organize and facilitate, and we run the gamut of topics.

Covers & cookies

It’s summer reading with a sweet treat!

Blind Dates

Sometimes the best answer to getting unstuck or “un-bored” is a good ol’ fashioned blind date. Introducing our Blind Date with a Book and Blind Date with a Wine, where you’ll find both books and wine wrapped in brown craft paper to conceal their identities. All you’ll know are the few hints we write on the outside, as well as the price. Sounds like fun? It is. Shop in-store.


Part of our love language is not just gathering great books, but also great bookish things. Our non-book items (which we call Sidelines) all have stories of their own that we think pair well with literary lifestyles.
