The selection of books is great. The staff are friendly and helpful. I love to browse the shelves, read a bit before I buy, and Always Buying Books is perfect for that.

I was VERY please with the atmosphere, and the pleasant people I came into contact with who worked there, Bob being one of them. I was able to take my time and look through what they had, and the prices were amazing. I am definitely coming here first from now on for my favorite novels.

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!

FAVORITE BOOKSTORE IN TOWN!!!! They have an excellent collection and their books are in great shape!!! They even go out of their way to help you find things. Also, they have the lowest and the fairest prices in town. No one else can compare!

I was in town over the holiday and my dad took me to this gem of a bookstore. I scored a first edition of a Hunter S Thompson collection for next to nothing. Later that day I returned with an old friend and we both found a handful of collectible editions by Tom Robbins, Ezra Pound, Ernest Hemingway, and Henry Miller. The only possible weak(ish) link was the lack of a philosophy section. I’ve visited bookstores from coast to coast and in Europe. This place holds its own with the best of them. I’ll be back.
