Build This House!


Help build our member-owner base in the bookstore cooperative! Compete with other book clubs for awards and prizes.

Each book club that registers and purchases at least one share in the cooperative will receive a free cup of tea and a 10% in-store discount on your next reading group book.

The grand prize will be awarded to the book club that invests the highest total dollar amount in the bookstore cooperative.

The grand prize includes a 15% discount on any purchases made in This House of Books or on our website. This applies to each and every member of the winning book club! That means, for one full calendar year, you will get a discount on books, tea, games, stuffed animals, and gifts! And did we mention discounted books?

The grand prize also includes a private tea party/brunch with Montana author Scott McMillion. Scott is the author of Mark of the Grizzly, bear consultant to the movie The Revenant, editor of Montana Quarterly Magazine, and editor of the book Montana, Warts and All.

Your book club will dine on fine refreshments and bear claws, our choice selection of tea, and have the opportunity to chat intimately with one of our region’s most celebrated authors.

How To Play:

  1. Register your book group’s name and members’ names by emailing
  2. Designate a coordinator for your group. The coordinator will turn in share purchase agreements and checks to This House of Books. Or your group may purchases shares online at
  3. Competition ends October 1, 2016. Winners will be announced in early October.
