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!

This is my favorite bookstore in southwest Missouri! The pricing and atmosphere are both great and I visit routinely to see what’s new 🖤 the owners are helpful and friendly too!

This is a gem!! I got 17 books for $44 and half of them were hardback. The owner is so nice and welcoming! Whenever I’m in joplin, stopping here is a must!!

This is a VERY nice establishment. the prices are phenomenal and the books are in either New or gently used conditions. there is a wide selection in all genres including many famous and highly acclaimed authors. It is clean and tidy. The gentleman behind the counter is exceptionally kind. Offering my overheated toddler a cold water and applejuice. This is definitely a kid friendly space BUT as with any business you want to keep them with you to respect the space and people in it. It’s a wonderful place! Stop by here before going to Books a Million! you may find the same $27 book for $4 !
