Our plans + How to get books

Hello friends of Pegasus! Hi, it's Emma here!

We are closed until it is safe to open again. We want to thank each and every one of you who has supported us these last few strange weeks! The support from our community has been really touching and I'm optimistic about the future of our bookstore. We love being your neighborhood bookstore and we want to continue to be part of your lives.

I hope to have our used books up for online browsing in 3-5 weeks. Yes, you will be able to use your store credit once I get the online inventory ready!

In the meantime, you can help us make it through this weird situation by giving us 2 minutes of your time right now! Here's how...

1. Sign up for our newsletter (red box above) so we can keep you updated as things continually change (this will take you 10 seconds)

2. Bookmark shop.pegasusbookexchange.com as your place to buy books online until our proper online shop opens (time: 20 seconds)

3. You can donate directly to us via the West Seattle Junction Association (believe me, we understand if you can't. It'll take between 30-90 seconds depending on whether you need to fish your card out of your purse or not. This will keep our bills paid until the online shop is open!)

4. Follow us on Facebook and share this post (which will be pinned at the top), tagging your significant other, besties, and your kids who buy stuff online (time: 30 seconds)

5. Watch Facebook and our newsletter (you did subscribe, right?!) for news about when the store will reopen (time: I hope you will take a few minutes a week to read my SCINTILLATING emails)

Thank you all SO MUCH!! We're going to miss all of you guys while we are closed!

Emma (and Fred, Lanthe, Eric, and Jimmy)

P.S. WASH YOUR HANDS!

Now offering HOME DELIVERY and CURBSIDE PICKUP!

Pegasus Book Exchange

is now offering

HOME DELIVERY and CURBSIDE PICKUP!


Hello friends of Pegasus! Our doors are still open regular hours, but we've added some new services! Whether you can’t leave home at all, or if you’re just limiting your social contact, we have options for you! Think of us as Instacart for books. :)

(And if you're not within our delivery range you can still support us by shopping at http://shop.pegasusbookexchange.com!)


Option 1 – if you’re not leaving home at all, WE WILL DELIVER! We deliver...

  • to locations within roughly 3 miles of our store
  • Thursdays, Saturdays, and Mondays around 4pm
  • delivery fee is $5, but it’s waived if the pre-credit cost of the books is $50 or more

Option 2 – if you’re able to pick up, we can do TAKE-OUT BOOKS! We can do this any time the store is open. Monday-Saturday 10-6 and Sundays 10-5.

  • there are two parking spots in the back
  • when you get here call us at 206-937-5410 and let us know where you are


For both types of orders, please EMAIL US at pegasusbookexchange@gmail.com. We will then call you after we’ve collected your order to confirm the selection and take payment. In your email, here’s what we need to make this all smooth:

1. Your maximum budget. If you have store credit, include the name it’s under.

2. Whether you’d like delivery or pickup. If delivery, include your address and special instructions.

3. Your phone number and what times we can call you. You may receive a call from one of our personal phones, so be sure to pick up. :)

4. Which specific titles you want. If it’s not available, let us know for each one:

  • if you’d like to skip it
  • order it (special orders will take another 2-3 days to arrive)
  • or recommend a substitute (which we’ll do over the phone when we talk to you)

5. If you want us to pick something out for you, give us some general guidelines and we’ll confirm the specifics when we talk to you on the phone.

Together we can all get through this with minimal inconvenience while keeping our community safe!

Thanks for your continued support! We really do have the best customers, and we appreciate all of you,


Fred, Lanthe, Emma, Jimmy, Eric, Selena, and Fernando

Our Online Bookshop.Org Page is Now Live!

Support indie bookstores! Shop.pegasusbookexchange.com


This is an exciting year for indie bookstores! Bookshop.org hit the news a few weeks ago as a way for independent booksellers to sell books online without having to handle shipping or pay massive fees for someone else to do so.

(Cue shrieks of happiness!)

Next time you purchase books online, instead of getting them from That Place, please consider shopping indie with us at http://shop.pegasusbookexchange.com!

If you're curious about how it works, here's the article in Forbes, here's one in Wired, and here's Bookshop's own FAQs.
