We are adding paperback books in 2020!

We had always intended to have paperback books for sale at Sand Dune Books but it has taken us a bit longer to get them up and running on the site.

Watch the blog/news section of this site for launch dates for paperback books -- along with sales, deals, and discounts!

(Right now books uploaded say "sold out" when you click on the paperback format -- these will be live on or about January 1, 2020.)
