Brand New for 2023:
Rainy Day Reads is partnering with Crystal Spring Grocery (home of the best chicken sandwich in the Roanoke Valley) to host a monthly bookclub!
First Monday of the month-- join us for drinks and snacks from 6:00-7:00 pm,
and (book)clubbin' from 7:00- 8:00pm
We are a small pop-up bookstore, located in the Roanoke Valley, in southwestern Virginia,
following our dream of sharing book-love in the Star City.
We're so glad you are here with us!
What's special about Rainy Day Reads?
A few things in particular:
1. Our inventory is purposefully and deliberately diverse in a variety of ways.
We strive to highlight minority voices and stories for all ages (infant-adult).
2. Our goal is and will always be Books In Hands.
We try to keep books in stock that are not only great to read,
but that are also affordable.
3. We come to YOU! That's right-- this bookstore travels!
Have an event coming up and think a micro-bookstore would be a great addition?
Let's work together! And with enough lead time, we can tailor our inventory to your event or space.
Come Shop (And Club!) with Us!
