Joplin's Only Full Line Used Book Store
Many "used book stores" carry only paperback books from a the romance & western genres. That is not the kind of bookstore you find here!
At Always Buying Books, we make all types of books available to our customers ... paperbacks and hardbacks, fiction and non-fiction, old and new, popular and obscure. In fact, our current inventory includes over 80,000 books ... give or take 3 or 4!
Buy, Sell & Trade
If you have books you want to sell or trade, bring them into the store. Or, if you are interested in adding to your collection, explore thousands of titles in every genre of fiction, as well as non-fiction and resource material. We buy, sell and trade classics as well as contemporary books.
Always Buying Books is known in the Joplin area as "the place" for book signings by popular authors. We host many local, regional and national authors, so keep your eye on our site for announcements of upcoming events!
We Need To Buy Your Books!
We sold so many books during our last sale that our storage buildings are empty!!
