Audiobooks that support your bookstore
George and Sylvia Givens — a frustrated teacher and a game-for-anything wife and mother — opened Boonshire Books more than 30 years ago in an old gas station. After clearing away the fumes and cobwebs and covering up the oil stains with remnant carpeting, they began a legacy that has since gone through many incarnations. In 1980, the Givenses moved the business across town and changed the store’s name to reflect the family moniker. Their son Danny, and his wife, Kathy, opened Little Dickens in the late 80s in a space not much bigger than their growing family’s minivan. When George officially retired in 1999, Givens Books changed generational hands, and Danny and Kathy moved the business once again, this time just a stone’s throw away to our current location at 2236 Lakeside Drive, at which time Givens Books and Little Dickens merged into one store. On any given day, you’re likely to trip over a Givens or two if you wander into the store. Sarah, the youngest of George and Sylvia’s children, manages the store, Danny oversees the business, and Sylvia, who thankfully will never retire, plays the matriarch — a well-earned title for someone who has been there from the beginning. The entire Givens family and all the employees we’ve claimed as family along the way would like to thank our customers for allowing us to serve the greater Lynchburg area for over three decades, and we look forward to a future as meaningful as our past.

“Love, Theoretically combines meme-based humor, sizzling romantic tension, soul-searching personal growth, and blazing critiques of the glaring disparities in academia. This book isn’t just awesome in theory — it’s a proven fact!”Sarah Knapp • Inkwood Books NJ
“In this WWII epic, Luis Alberto Urrea captures the catastrophic scale of war through the eyes of Irene and Dorothy, two Red Cross enlistees. Their spry banter, secrets, and tender care make a story and a friendship you won’t forget.”Sarah Hollenbeck • Women & Children First
“Equal parts modern satire, indictment of the publishing industry, and twisted ghost story, R. F. Kuang’s first foray into literary fiction pulls no punches and will have you reading late into the night.”Abby Bennsky • Old Town Books
“Awesome. Thuridur was Iceland's first female punk, sea captain, woman to wear trousers, and all-around badass. She's the hero you didn't know you needed. Margaret Wilson did an excellent job researching this book learning from the people of Iceland. I listened on Libro.fm, but will also read a physical copy because I like to party.”Monica • Bright Side Bookshop
“This novel is The Secret Garden meets Goodnight Mr. Tom meets Gone Girl. I loved it! I've been listening to this as an audiobook on my morning walks and I've been having to take afternoon and evening walks as well, because I just can't wait to hear more. I love the thought of a magical world only the sisters share with their stories. Patti Callahan Henry just captures that wonder of childhood so well. This book is an easy handsell and one of my favorites so far this year!”Marya • Out West Books
“Of course I knew the Red Cross served in all the wars, but I thought it was nursing care and well back from danger. I had no idea they trained women to be a slice of home for the GI's, to cook donuts, play card games, be a listening ear, and deliver mail all the way up to the foxholes of the front line. I couldn't put it down.”Lisa • Bookmarks
