Really cool place to look for books. Its out of the way and local. The staff is awesome and they have some really good books you wouldn't normally find elsewhere. There is something about buying a book from a book store that is so much more satisfying than shopping online.

I love this book store! The last time I was there I was able to pick up some great Christian fiction, 2 gluten free cookbooks and a book about a Great man of God ( JOHN G. Lake) AND A BAG OF misc reads for less$ than I would have spent on just 1 cookbook at a regular book store! This place is amazing! Their selection, service and great prices are THE BEST!

EXEMPLARY, INCULPABLE. Mucho Gusto, Mr. Bob Wolfe. ( By the way, sentence is exactly 50 characters, HAHA )

Bob sells books and I buy books. It's important and enjoyable for me to have my own personal reference library. Bob has one, if not the largest collection of used, hard to find, or out of print history books in the region. Stop buy and take a look, you could find something that you've been looking for...for a long time!

I went this book shop looking for some Robin Cook novels that I haven't read yet, and this is the first place in the Joplin/Webb City area that had em! Plus, had a large Brenda Novak and James Patterson collection. Not to mention the plethora of classic books. Some as old as 1812. A very large Oscar Wilde section. they have books for children and teens, cookbooks, Whatever you're looking for, he's got it! Best bookshop EVER!
