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!

As an avid reader, I love Always Buying Books for finding a great read. As a local author, I enjoy book signing events in the store and having my paperbacks on the local author shelf. The staff is friendly and incredibly helpful. I’ve asked about books that a librarian would have trouble finding and they know where it is and take you straight to it. Amazing service!
