Welcome, book lovers! 

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's City Campus.
                                         
Come explore our labyrinth of books! Our staff is friendly, knowledgeable and can help you find books you'll love. Padric & Eddy, our feline staff, are likely to be lounging on the rugs or sleeping in the windows. 

Current news: 3/24/15: We have completed several Spring Projects, so the bookshop is looking fresh for the season. We continue to get great Fiction and Children's/YA Lit - and we've enjoyed a great influx of History and Philosophy lately. We're excited to host Stage RIGHT, a benefit for LHS Theatre, this Friday. Come see us soon!
