For Bookclubs & Teachers
Here you can find infomation about our upcoming Over the Moon Book Group picks, reading recommendations, and bookclub resources.
Over the Moon Book Group
We usually meet the second Thursday of every month at 6 pm but currently do not have a bookclub scheduled. Everyone is welcome, (and you don't have to have finished the book to attend!). We've had some pretty lively discussions, and we hope you'll join us for the next one! The OTM book club pick is always 10% off, as soon as it's announced. Next month's book club pick is announced at the club meeting, and then here, of course. If you are interested give us a call!
We love book clubs! Register your book club with us and we'll give you 10% off your monthly pick. Anne loves meeting with book clubs to share the store's favorite book club picks. Here's how it works: We pick an evening that works for all of us, and your group comes in when we close the store at 6pm. Lots of groups have brought potluck dinners and their favorite beverages, but that's not required. Then Anne presents a bunch of her favorite book club picks - usually about a dozen or more. When we're finished, your club gets to have a private shopping evening!
We look forward to assisting teachers with book selections for their classrooms. Book purchases for class are 10% off retail price.
When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits:
Spend $100 at a local and $68 of that stays in your community.
Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
More of your taxes are reinvested in your community-where they belong.
Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
Local retailers are your friends and neighbors—support them and they’ll support you.
Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.
Now is the time to stand up and join your fellow individuals in the IndieBound mission supporting local businesses and celebrating independents.
IndieBound supports Independent Business Alliances around the country.
To find an alliance near you, visit AMIBA or BALLE.
Over the Moon is a Crozet oasis for readers and art lovers. We host monthly gallery openings featuring a different local artist & local winery on the Second Saturday of the month.

Come in and say hello to Anne & Laura, then make yourself at home at Over the Moon!
