Moving on After Hurrican Harvey

Paperback Swap N Shop

From  September 1971 to August 2017 this bookstore was a great place. 

Then Harvey brought 

6 feet of water.

Re-opening the store as it was is just not economically feasible.


Our website has been working with families and friends of prison inmates since 2007.  On line-customers can order used books, new books, magazines and more!  We ship USPS to prisons and jails across the country. 

A New Bookstore!

Dear Customer,

THANKS! For checkin in..  The plan is to start taking in books about the middle of the month.   4817 FM 646 (a few feet west of the 3436 intersection). 

Chaos exists, so it would be a good idea to call ahead of time, but hours look to be 9 to 3.  Hopefully  the cable situation will be fixed and the regular phone number will work again: 281-534-3370.

Planned opening day is March 1st.
