I love reading. I have a nook, but it’s the same price to purchase books there as it is in person. So Friday I took my sick wee one to check out some books for Momma. We found 3, I finished 600+ pages being sick & taking care of my sweet girl in 2 days! I couldn’t put it down. It felt very good to have a book back in my hands! The service was lovely & friendly & it’s so nice to have a place we don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to enjoy! We will definitely be repeat customers!

New books are rotated into the stock regularly. Recent reorganization of the store looks great. If you like piles of books, searching for treasures, and people named Bob – this is the shop for you. Every time I am in Joplin I pick up a stack of delightfully used paperbacks.

Wonderful used book store! Great selection of books! I especially liked their Children’s section. Lots of PB, MG and YA as well as nonfiction.

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.
