Shop at Read With Me Anytime, Anywhere!

At Read With Me Children's Books & Art Shop in downtown Raleigh, we carefully and thoughtfully hand-pick each children's book in our store. However, we understand that sometimes you need to shop outside our regular bookstore hours (and in your pajamas). Within our online store, you can shop for a specific book, place a pre-order, or browse our recommendations all in a database that consists of nine million in-print titles and more than four million eBooks and audiobooks. You can even create a wishlist–or search for someone else’s wishlist to buy a gift! 

Order & Pick-up for Free or Ship to Thee

Ready to order? It's simple. Choose your books, place in your cart and check out.  You'll get a message from us that we received your order and you will be updated on the order status.

There is always no cost to pick up your order in our store. Ground shipping fees are $5.00  flat rate.

In-Stock: If your book(s) is in-stock in our warehouse, we'll notify you when you can pick it up or have it shipped in just a few business days. In-store shopping coming soon! Need it quickly? Email to check in-store stock.

Out of Stock: If your book(s) is not in-stock, we will notify you with an estimate of when it will be ready, usually to be picked-up or shipped within 7 business days. Some small press or older titles may take longer. Can't find it? Email us and we'll take a look around. We do not bulk order textbooks.

Your order from Read With Me's online shop benefits our bookstore and keeps your shopping dollars local similar to buying a book off our shelves. Luckily, now you don’t have to choose between the convenience of online shopping and buying local! #shoplocal #dtraleighindependentshops #shopindependent
