ABOUT US

WE ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED FOR BROWSING IN STORE DUE TO COVID-19, BUT WE'RE STILL OPERATING

We are offering porch pickup for any order and local delivery on orders of $40 or more. We can ship to you as well; our shipping costs depend on the order. You can also shop online and get items shipped directly to you from our warehouse. The best way to support us is to toss a coin into our virtual tip jar or to purchase a gift card.

ABOUT THE STORE

Tubby & Coo’s is a locally owned, progressive, nerdy new & used book shop and tabletop gaming store in Mid-City New Orleans. The book shop is named after the owner’s grandparents: Tubby & Coo, who grew up in the same neighborhood where the shop is located. 

We’re a community center for nerds, geeks, freaks, and the like. We are a niche genre fiction bookstore, meaning we only carry science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels, and children’s books. We also focus on books with queer content, and we stock board games. 

We also have a board game demo library of more than 250 games for customers to peruse. Come on in, choose a game from our gaming library, and play at our 24/7 gaming tables!

Our motto: “It’s all Geek to me!” For more information, visit our FAQ and Used Book Buying Policy pages.

ABOUT THE OWNER

Candice Huber (they/them) is a self proclaimed nerd/geek, and opening a book shop has fulfilled one of Candice’s lifelong dreams. Candice started reading at the age of two, earning the nickname “Johnny 5” after the Short Circuit robot who loved “input” any way he could get it. Besides books, Candice loves board games, Hamilton: The MusicalStar WarsSupernaturalDoctor Who, ThundercatsHe-ManShe-RaJem and the Holograms (see the 80s cartoon trend here?), Harry PotterGame of Thrones, musical theater, and Disney, among other geeky things. Candice also loves to write and tends to overachieve and get way too involved in things. Stop by, say hello, and ask for recommendations!
