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.

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.

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.


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.

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.
