  1. Congrats! We treasure you and your wonderful book shop. Here’s to 40 more years of providing us with great reads and a welcoming smile.

  2. Congratulations! Many many more I hope. The Seattle Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi also sends its congratulations.

  3. Happy Birthday to you all!
    Edmonds Bookshop is my Edmonds version of the old English inglenook.
    A place of warmth to hear from the staff whatever the book is that I can only remember part of the title of or author. They have either read it, or have heard of it or can hand it to me from their shelves, and if I’m even shorter on information their nimble knowing fingers bring up several possibilities, till I brighten at one of them.
    There are few places where you get this service these days and thankfully Edmonds Bookshop is there for us. So thank you one and all, I’ll see you soon!
