Welcome to Susan’s!

Welcome to Susan’s Books & Gifts in Aurora, Nebraska!  I’m so glad you found our site!  Besides my favorite books & gifts, I hope you find articles on our site that encourage you and help you with any struggles in your life.   On many Thursdays I send a note on whatever I am reading that particular week.  These writings are found above under archives and are sorted by topic. Within these topics you will find encouragement if going through grief or difficult times. You will also find newsletters on fun subjects (such as writings for book lovers, parents, friendships, poetry, quotes).  This is my favorite part of the site, and I would love to hear from you if you find a note that helps you.

Our used bookstore now has over 20,000 books and growing.  If you have any books you need to find a home for and would like to donate them, we would love to add them. We use this money to help fund giving books away in our community (to elderly, those grieving, new mothers, and students), and to help fund promotions within our store.   Because the books are donated to our store we are able to have books all only $2 so that everyone has the opportunity to take home as many books as they desire.  Everyone that walks into our store also gets to choose a free book on every visit, regardless if you need to buy anything or not.  We love doing this & we love that the book you choose may change your life!

Our toy store is full of crafts, science projects, art supplies, and fun little gifts for your children.  I choose what I carry by what my own children have in our home and what parents recommend to me within our store.  I also research what companies won awards and order their products for our store.

Our gift shop is full of “My Favorite Things” — gifts  I have purchased for my own home and kids.  Our cut soaps with designs are favorites by our customers, along with gifts for book lovers (Scrabble magnets, bookmarks, & logic games).  We especially love our magnets & mugs from Quotables.   Our educational games section is full of our favorites that my own family plays along with logic games that will challenge the ones of you that love a challenge!

If you’re not in our area, we look forward to shipping what you need & providing many books to you for such a low price to help you be able to read as many as you’d like sent with our smile from Nebraska.

We’d love to have you join us on Facebook.  Facebook is where I daily put information on what we have received in that day and are adding to our website, including any books added by topic. 

We desire our site to be one where you find joy, comfort, encouragement, and hope.  We have the moments given to us today.  Our gift.  May the epitaph we write tonight in stone have words worthy of inscription.  Regardless of our circumstances, let us continue to read, to look to authors for our strength.  To keep our perspective.  Our eternal perspective.  We have been given the gift of this day.  This beautiful day.  Thank you for letting me now enter your world.
