Gift Certificates are available for any amount, never expire and are
good on all books & merchandise in our store. All Gift Certificates are
written by hand. Gift Certificates of $25 or higher value come in a
beautiful sleeve of handmade paper embedded with wildflower seeds, which
can be planted in a sunny spot.
Established in 1991, our store has an ever-changing collection
of used, rare & out-of-print books on two floors. You can find
everything from paperback Mysteries to SIGNED First Editions,
Leather bound books, Scholarly Non-Fiction, Cookbooks,
Children's Books & much more. We're located in downtown Lincoln
- just a few blocks from the University of Nebraska
- Come explore our labyrinth of books! Our staff is friendly,
knowledgeable and can help you find books you'll love. Eddy &
Charlie, our feline staff
members, are likely to be lounging on the rugs or
sleeping in the windows.
Current news: 11/25/18: We dug into our pricing
backlog last week and found Signed First Editions of Mari Sandoz
titles, Signed First Editions of Mysteries by John Grisham,
Nevada Barr, CJ Box & Michael McGarrity. Other items of note
were hardcover editions of uncommon titles by Mark Twain, Folio
Society Barbara Tuchman, Audubon Society Field Guides, a
3-volume set of Memoirs by the French ambassador to Russia that
was written in the years immediately leading up to the Russian
Revolution - and lots more.
Right before Thanksgiving, we purchased a good collection of
Poetry and some interesting Civil War books. We also bought a
cache of Young Adult novels, including many Rick Riordan titles
in hardcover and lots of Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
Porridge Papers, another local business, made a series of Gift
Certificate sleeves for us. They are handmade paper, embedded
with wildflower seeds, die-cut to hold an insert. The recipient
is able to spend the insert at our shop - and then plant the
sleeve according to instructions to grow flowers!
Each week, we post a photo of our New Arrivals
section. To view the most recent photos, click
post New Arrivals photos to our Facebook page, where
customers call "dibs" on books they would like us to hold
for them by commenting on the photos. To be one of the early
