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,

Looking for your old bookstore?

Someday soon,

Somewhere not to far away,

I will be back!

Miss you guys...
