We are pleased and proud to invite you into the Paradise Found online Bookshop experience! Just like you, we’ve had to adapt to these shifting world conditions in which we find ourselves.
From the initial shock of the impact of the global pandemic, to having to close our doors for the first time in our 33-year history, to implementing safe and practical re-opening strategies – it’s been quite the ride.
And now, in partnership with Bookshop.org, we have added an online Bookshop to our presence in the world. This new venture grants our beloved community a uniquely curated 24/7 access to books, decks, and more for supporting, inspiring, and staying connected – all from the comfort of your home. What could be easier?
A Harvest of Good Reads
Part of what makes the timing of this announcement so special is that we have just reached the point on the Wheel of the Year known as Lammas (also called Lughnasdh) –midway between the Summer Solstice (Litha) and the Autumnal Equinox (Mabon).
It’s often referred to as ‘First Harvest’, a time when the fruits of the season come into ripeness and the first grain is harvested. This is a time of creative fulfillment, celebration and feasting as reward for our hard work during the planting season.
We encourage you to take some time to reflect on how these past three months have been impacting and shaping you…What are you learning about yourself? What are you discovering about others? What are you now more aware of what matters to you that you may not have known, or known as deeply, before?
What might living a more magical life look like for you? How do you want to be supported? What would you like to cultivate in your life and relationships? What is calling to be healed? How has your relationship with Nature served to sustain and support you? What desires have ripened in you? What have you been harvesting? We’re honored and ready to be a supportive resource for whatever your inquiries yield.
A book for you, and for you…and for you!
We invite you to visit the Paradise Found Bookshop often – our doors are always open and you are always welcome. Who among us hasn’t experienced a 3:00 a.m. can’t sleep for all the stuff coming up? We have a section just for that. Be sure to scroll down and explore our abundant lists of offerings. The shop is designed for your maximum ease – from browsing, to ordering, and delivery.
Another very cool feature is that, through the Paradise Found online Bookshop, you can search for any book (regardless of topic), purchase it through our portal, and have it safely delivered directly to you. We will still receive benefit – as will the independent bookstore culture at large through our partner’s mission to employ and craft online business as a force for good in the world.
The Bookshop is evolving every day; new books and topics are being added and new features are becoming more available, including access to used copies and expanded sidelines like calendars, mugs and other gift items, jigsaw puzzles, and coloring books.
We’re so appreciative of your time and attention and want to let you know that we’re here to listen and respond. Please let us know if there are interests we haven’t addressed and you would like to suggest them for the shop.
Let’s stay curious, connected, and creative!
