About Us

Your Independent, Full Service Bookshop in Beautiful Downtown Marshall, MI

Love to read?   Love to learn new things?   So do we!    

We specialize in Michigan and local history, children's books, many classics, and offer a wide selection of new & used titles. 

Stop in and browse! Bring your coffee or tea and have a seat! 

Don't forget: Books make the greatest gifts. Our attractive gift certificates make it easy and risk-free to share the joy of reading!  We have many non-book items to enjoy as well! 

Your Complete Satisfaction is Our Goal

If we do not have a book we will try to get it for you at a good price & condition. We work with publishers, new book wholesalers, and other independent bookstores.  We have access to many sources of new and used books, so call us first! 

We Sell New and Used Books

We screen all used books and do not accept, nor sell, books that are not of high quality. Check out our Book Exchange Program. It's good for you and the planet!
