Book People has been a respite for readers for over 30 years.

We have been serving readers around the world from the West End of Richmond, Virginia for over 30 years. Visitors to the store are free to explore our four rooms and browse through 20,000 titles in stock—half new and half a combination of used and collectible volumes—all within a 1200 square-foot house. We offer...

  • Convenient, Ample Parking
  • Cozy, old-fashioned bookstore atmosphere
  • New, used, and rare books
  • An extensive foreign language section
  • Discounts on New York Times Bestsellers
  • Out-of-print book search
  • Delivery and shipping
  • Discounts to institutions and book clubs

Book People is located just south of the corner of Granite and Patterson Avenues with ample parking to the side of the store.

We special order books, read books and have an excellent track record of locating out of print books for our customers. Both in-store shoppers and telephone orders are welcome. We delight in face-to-face transactions, but attend to domestic and international phone-in mail orders promptly as well. Our inventory is NOT computerized, apart from over 3,700 collectible titles listed with AbeBooks.

We are proud to rely on our brains instead.
