Book Studio

At the One Up Bookstudio, we invite you to browse, sink into a book and forget the frenetic pace of life outside. We aspire to give you back that childhood joy of turning the crisp pages of a must-read book or create new sensory book memories for your children.

The Bookstudio honors all kinds of readers, and respects all their preferences. Our trained librarians and staff are book-lovers themselves and can talk to you about your needs or interests, to make personalized recommendations.

Do you love the measured writing of Chomsky and Capote? Are you looking for a page-turner that makes you think? From the classics to the contemporary, the One Up Bookstudio caters to all kinds of interests and all kinds of minds.Whether you are looking to enrich the life of a baby, a grandparent or a busy professional, we have something for you!

Will Schwalbe

Books are uniquely suited to helping us change our relationship to the rhythms and habits of daily life in this world of endless connectivity. We can’t interrupt books; we can only interrupt ourselves while reading them. They are the expression of an individual or a group of individuals, not of a hive mind or collective consciousness. They speak to us, thoughtfully, one at a time. They demand our attention. And they demand that we briefly put aside our own beliefs and prejudices and listen to someone else’s. You can rant against a book, scribble in the margin or even chuck it out the window. Still, you won’t change the words on the page.
