Welcome to Common Language Bookstore

Common Language Bookstore Continues Online

We have a LOT of new and used books which have been moved to a climate controlled storage area. Over the next months (years?) I'll be getting those online. We will also be taking the store to various Pride Festivals in Michigan, as well as a Book-A-Palooza or 2 in our driveway.

Meanwhile we can continue to take orders and ship most Books In Print on this site.I've been a little behind keeping this site up-to-datewith newest releases. You'll notice updates have started, and will continue into the future.

I would also LOVE to get the community involved in this. If you have a favorite book, especially recent books, drop me a message with the book and (if you'd like) a short review. I'll start a Reader's Picks section.



“My heart is moved by all I cannot save: so much has been destroyed I have to cast my lot with those who age after age, perversely, with no extraordinary power, reconstitute the world.”
