$5 gift certificates for you and a friend!



Already a Pegasus aficionado? Thanks - we love you guys! We want to give you a present...and your friends, too.

It's a safe bet you probably know at least one person who has some extra books, but doesn't know that we would love to have them. All you have to do is tell them about us, and when they set up a new account, you both get a $5 gift certificate. Easy peasy!

(Tell your friend to give us the name on your account when they come in; we'll put the $5 right on your card. Or if you don't have an account because you're like "you can pry my books from my cold, dead fingers," that's okay - we'll just write your name down in the file so you can get your $5.)

While we may discontinue this promotion at some point, there are no limits to how many times you can use it while it's going on. So, refer four people, get $20 in gift certificates! Share this post - spread the word!

I'm glad we've established that


The real mystery is what the publisher was thinking when they gave it this title.

Maybe not the best message


She should have started by saying no to that sweater. And then to those eyebrows.

And to that creepy, creepy smile.

Psst! Want to know Pegasus's best-kept secret?



Want to lose weight? Or do you want to run a marathon, learn a martial art, or get more flexible with yoga? Want to get pregnant or figure out what the heck to do with the kid you already have? Or get inspired by a great sports bio? Or become a sex god?

A little known fact about Pegasus: We have hundreds of nutrition, health, parenting, sex and sports books in our back room. Yep, the room past the exit sign that looks suspiciously employees-only, with the sorting area on one side. But there are awesome books for sale back there as well - all nicely organized for browsing. Come check 'em out!

You can park behind the store and come in the back door, too. It's always open!

Emma's Pick "Ella Minnow Pea" by Mark Dunn

Emma's review:

Thumbs up for Ella Minnow Pea by Mark Dunn. Literature.

This is what I call a "bath book" - a book of 200 pages or less that I can read over the length of one (very long) bath. And a most delightful bath book it is. It is a novel in letters (I won't be poncy and call it "epistolary"), mostly sent between two teenage cousins who live on opposite sides of the hyper-literate island nation Nollop, which floats off the coast of the southern US. Most likely Nollop is a charming place to live, but the problem is, the local council of elders has gone bonkers and is outlawing the use of certain letters,one by one....

Emma's Pick: "Divergent" by Veronica Roth

Both Emma and Kyrsten loved this! And the sequel, Insurgent, is equally good!

Here's Emma's review:
Thumbs up for Divergent by Veronica Roth. Young adult science fiction.

Should we encourage the authors of Hunger Games knockoffs who write stories about underestimated, scrappy heroines who overcome intense personal danger, fight against a corrupt dystopian society, and find love with a hot boy? Well...if they're Veronica Roth, we should. I couldn't put Divergent down.... [view the rest of the review on Emma's blog]

Can we give you books?

We are looking for a charity or school who can pick up books for donation at least once a week. We generally have between 8-20 boxes of miscellaneous books, including children's books, technical books, novels of all types, nonfiction...you name it. We need someone who will take them all on a consistent schedule.

Is that you? Or if it isn't you, will you pass the message on?

If you're interested, give us a call at 206.937.5410 or drop us an email at pegasusbookexchange AT gmail.com

Weirdness and delight

And in today's news, we bring you....


Never judge a book by its cover from Orange News. I almost feel like this has to be a prank.

And....


the adorable Little Free Libraries.

Hey look, somebody likes us!


Here's a shout-out to Randall of Randall Writes for his charming (and entirely unsolicited!) post about his visit to Pegasus. Thanks Randall! We're happy to be "your" bookstore. :)

When Used Books Attack: Banana Edition, from BookRiot

You know the whole "ROTFLOL" thing, right? Rolling on the Floor Laughing Out Loud? Well, it's usually a hyperbole.

Until I saw this website, I had never actually collapsed onto the floor with laughter.

When Used Books Attack: Banana Edition from BookRiot.

Like it says:

SPOILER: This is the most horrifying thing ever. Ready?
 You have been warned.

Something lovely
