This is my favorite place in Joplin! Bob and Elise are just the greatest people ever. They go out of their way to make sure you have a good day there. Also they have such an impressive collection of books (and globes🌏 🙂 Love that place♡
Love love love this book store!!
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!
I’ve been here a couple of times and I absolutely love this place! I would go every Saturday if I could!
Found some rare books I was looking for at a great price. Love to buy and sell there.
Well worth a visit anytime. Bob is a really awesome guy who always has time to share with a friend.
It is so good that bookstores like these still exist. Lots of chairs and places to sit. Great service and very helpful folks . I was looking in 4 boxes of books that had just come in. They didn’t scold me because they weren’t priced yet, as has happened in other stores but had me stack them and a gave me a great price for the lot.
This is a wonderful book store with knowledgeable friendly staff. A wide selection of books, author signings and easy access.
Amazing books, prices, and people. By far my favorite used bookstore around!
