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.

New location

Opening Chaos!   Please forgive the sight paint smell and occasional sound of a construction.  We are starting small, with room to grow.  Our second room is open, working on the third! Come bye and say "Hi"   Your trade credit from the old store is good.  If you have a horde of books to bring it, that is great!  I look forward to seeing my customers.
