Think Global, Buy Local

New Mexico Books and More

Great ideas are worth repeating. Last year, New Mexico presses and authors—led by local publisher LPD Press—pooled their resources to rent a storefront in Cottonwood Mall during the holiday shopping season. The creative gamble paid off. The co-op got massive local media coverage and ended up selling over 3,400 books in 40 days.

This year, they're doing it again in the same space. New Mexico Books and More is more than just a temporary bookstore specializing in New Mexico books. With a packed roster of booksignings stretching from the last week of November right up to Christmas, it's like a DIY book festival that costs next to nothing for local authors to participate in.

The store attracts the likes of local literary bigshots like Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez and Rudolfo Anaya as well as a host of lesser known authors. As such it presents an ideal opportunity to pick up the perfect gifts for the readers on your shopping list. Whether you're shopping for someone who lives in New Mexico or for someone out of state, a book about our fair region can make an ideal gift for the right person.

The store itself will be in operation from Nov. 20 through Dec. 31. It will generally be open Mondays through Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Below is a schedule of signings. For additional details about the store, log onto the New Mexico Book Co-op's excellent website at and click on "Book Store."
