Welcome to Phoenix Books

Free domestic shipping through April 30th

A Note for Phoenix Books Essex and Burlington Customers

Taking our cue from local and federal government, Phoenix Books Essex and Burlington are temporarily closed to public browsing. While this will have a profound impact on both our communities and our booksellers, Mike DeSanto and Renee Reiner, the owners of Phoenix Books, feel that health and safety concerns must be our top priority. Employees will receive additional paid time off to make up for lost hours of work. We hope you will continue to support Phoenix and other local businesses by keeping your valuable dollars in the local economy.

While we are closed to the public, we are still conducting business. A bookseller will be available from 10am until 5pm daily to find and recommend books, games, and gifts for you by phone or by email. Or shop online--our website is always open. 

Our delivery options:
*Front door pick-up
*Free domestic media mail shipping

Burlington: 802.448.3350

A Note for Phoenix Books Rutland Customers

Phoenix Books Rutland appreciates all of the support we have received over the past few weeks as businesses throughout Vermont began to weather the disruptions caused by COVID-19. Unfortunately, we have just learned that a family member of one of our booksellers has tested positive. Using an abundance of caution, we have decided to close the Rutland store for all business until April 4th.

If you have an outstanding order, you have the option to cancel it for a full refund or have the order shipped to your home free of charge. To contact us about this please email

Until we see you again in person, please shop online or call our Burlington store at 802.448.3350 to place an order that will be shipped to you free of charge.

Thank you again for your love and support. We look forward to reengaging with our community of readers in the store as soon as it is possible to do so. In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for updates, book reviews, and video story times.
