We have many, many books, used and new, that are not listed on our website, about 25,000 in all. Come in and browse and find a treasure, or give us a call or drop us an email to inquire. You can also download our PDF catalog, featuring cozies, British, Historicals, International Mysteries, Noir and more. Some of our inventory is older and so some of these titles will be first come, first served. You can email us your order and we’ll get back to you shortly with a total; you can pay us via check or credit card. We’re offering a 15% discount on all our titles as well as free shipping via media mail in the continental U.S.
You can also search our inventory and order titles via our ABE Books page.

Dear Beloved Customers and Readers,
We are regretful but ready to announce that we will be closing Aunt Agatha’s in August of this year. We have enjoyed getting to know many of you, discussing books with you, sharing author events with you and sharing the love of mysteries with you for 26 years. Many of you we are happy to think of as friends. It’s been a wonderful journey. [Read the full letter]
FAQ / A few facts to keep in mind as we close:
- We can no longer take your books for store credit.
- Your gift cards are still good.
- The discounts increase each month. In May, the discount increases to 20%.
- Discounts at author events remain at 15%.
- Keep an eye out for events after we close. We also plan to post on Facebook and will be introducing a review blog. Many of you have asked, “How will I know what to read?” We hope to keep helping you figure that out.
- Everything is for sale! Posters, shelves, skulls, etc. Just ask.

Aunt Agatha’s won the 2014 Raven Award, presented by Mystery Writers of America! Established in 1953, the award recognizes outstanding achievement in the mystery field outside the realm of creative writing.
We are absolutely thrilled and astonished to be the recipient of the Raven Award! We feel we have been privileged for twenty-one years to share our passion for mysteries with readers and to put forward the work of writers we love. We are really grateful to the Mystery Writers of America for this wonderful honor.
