About Mystery To Me
Mystery To Me is a bookstore for everyone who loves mystery and anyone who celebrates local bookstores. We offer mystery books that are new, not so new and gently used. Stop by for great events including writing workshops, local author "slams," local artist installations and more. Our future inventory will depend on feedback from customers, so if you would like to let us know about favorite authors and about your ideas for a neighborhood bookstore, feel free to stop in the store and chat with us.
At Mystery To Me you'll find a wide selection of everything from cozies and historical mysteries to thrillers and police procedurals. In addition to mystery, we have a small non-mystery nook with a growing selection of work by local authors including everything from poetry to memoir. We also have a growing selection of children and young adult titles.
In 2014, Mystery To Me received the Patterson Grant! As part of James Patterson's Saving Bookstores, Saving Lives campaign, we were awarded the grant. It's because of YOU, our incredible customers who support the store, that Mystery to Me received money to design, build and stock new bookcases for our children and young adult sections.
We've been awarded the best new store in Madison via the Isthmus Readers Poll!
