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!

If you are a book lover, you have to check this place out. I can’t stress this enough as this is the neatest bookstore I have ever been to. The prices are very reasonable and the guy I spoke with at the counter is knows his stuff! The other interesting thing here are, world GLOBES! On several of the bookcases you will find world globes. I remember seeing these all the time I was a child.

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!

It has that feeling of home when you walk in the door. Friendly, welcoming staff. Large selection of books, at great prices. What’s not to recommend?
