Resolve to Read: Loganberry Books

With frosty weather back in Cleveland for the foreseeable future, it’s easy to retreat indoors and snuggle up. We suggest a tweak to that plan—head to an independent bookstore in Cleveland, grab a book, and then make haste back to your couch to get lost in a fictional world (or your genre of choice). If you made a resolution to read more this year, but you’re not sure where to start, check out The Daily on Thursdays in January—we’ll take you on a tour of local bookstores that you can support.

Our second stop on our Cleveland bookstore tour is Loganberry Books. Located in Shaker Heights, it’s the largest independent bookstore in the city, home to more than 100,000 new, used and rare titles—for both readers and collectors. Their strongest collections include children’s and illustrated books, women’s history and literature, leatherbound and modern first editions, and fine and performing arts publications. 

Fun Fact

Loganberry Books made international news during Women’s History Month in 2017 as it turned all books written by men in their fiction room backwards, illustrating the fiction author gender gap. The display in the bookstore read: “We’ve silenced male authors, leaving works of women in view.”

Book of the Month Club

Loganberry Books has three different options for its Book of the Month Club, which are each curated to the reader based on their age, reading interests and price point. If you’re interested in signing up for any of the below, call the store at 216.795.9800 or send an email to with your phone number.

Reader’s Club: In this club, you’ll read good copies of common titles, including new paperbacks, used hardbacks and the occasional clean ex-library book of something less common. This is the most popular club level for small children (who couldn’t care less about first editions) and fiction readers (who just want a good paperback to read in bed). This option is $12 a month, postage paid.

Bookworm Society: This club allows you to read classics and well-loved favorites, as well as connect with new discoveries and overlooked gems. The club’s books are in new or fine condition, but if you like obscure gems, they may occasionally include a lesser copy of something desirable and out-of-print.  This level is perfect for gift-giving and for the discriminating reader. This option is $24 a month, postage paid.

Book Lover’s Guild: In this club, you’ll receive nice editions of award-winners and perennial favorites in clean, bright copies. Out-of-print classics, illustrated editions, and fine copies with dust jackets are the norm. For young readers, this means Newbery and Caldecott Award winners and other interesting and well-known titles. For grown readers, this means fine hardback editions and illustrated volumes such as gardening and travel. This option is $36 a month, postage paid.
