ABOUT AZORA BOOKS
Who We Are
As it so often happens with passion projects turned business ventures, the beginning of Azora Books happened many years ago in the comfortable spaces of everyday life.
Ready for a charming story? Turn the clock back fifteen years and you’ll see Amanda and Rebecca in the midst of bedtime story hour. Rebecca never found just one story good enough, so there’s Amanda, the bookish babysitter, happily reading story and story.
The years flew by quickly and pretty soon Rebecca had lost interest in pink princess attire and giant tents in the guest room. By this time, Rebecca was an avid reader and Amanda made sure she never ran out of books.
They may have just continued with their planned bookstore outings if not for one very adorable surprise. After years of waiting in the adoption process, Amanda got the call that a birthmother wanted to meet and baby was due in just three weeks! The next month Amanda was taking tiny Micah home and godmother Rebecca was one of his first visitors.
With Micah’s adoption and legal fees still growing, Amanda looked on her shelves for books to sell and asked for Rebecca's help. The leap from adoption fundraiser to viable business took care of itself, which is a way of saying that Micah encouraged them to dream bigger. By the onset of 2020, they were ready to set down their hopeful roots: increasing access to affordable books, supporting sustainability efforts, and contributing to local literacy programs.
One year later, Azora Books has already expanded operations with new inventory arriving daily. The story of Azora Books is only just beginning--thanks for being part of the next chapter!
