Yes we have cats, not dogs at our store. Although we love dogs, and our staff has dogs (and other pets) at home Dogeared is a reference to the turned down corner of a page made to mark your place. Even though we are fond of the term dogeared please don't do this to your books it may affect the trade-in. Dogeared was formed in 2001 after the store was sold to the new owners Tina Smith, and Phil Jorgenson. The store previously was Fireside Books. Fireside and now Dog Eared Books has been at the same location for over 20 years. We are locally owned a operated. We want to give you great books in great condition for an even better price. When you are at the counter and you have made your purchase you will here Tina say, "Enjoy your books." Thank you for your past patronage, and hopefully your business in the future."
