About Us


Our Story

We started out as a small used books store about 20 years ago. Our original location occupied a small storefront with approx 1000 square feet. We would find books were ever we could. Frequenting estate sales, garage sales, and auctions was a normal occurrence for us. Bringing our customers the best quality books for an affordable price was our goal.
At our headquarters we currently occupy three storefronts with approx 5000 square feet and stock over 120,000 items. We process approx 150-300 used books daily through our trade credit program. New items hit the shelves every day! We currently offer new books at highly discounted rates and our online marketplace has an inventory of approx 300 rare and unusual books. We stock CDs, DVDs, and audio books as well.
Our newest location is located in Washington Illinois. We stock well over 20,000 items and occupy approx. 1600 square feet.
Through it all we still strive for the same goal. To bring you the BEST quality books for an affordable price.
Stop in today and see what we have to offer. Bring in your unwanted books and set up a trade account to save some money, pick up something for yourself, pick up something for a gift, or just take a stroll around. We look forward to seeing you!
