Used bookstore dickinson texas 77539

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

Prisons and jails almost always require publications to come from a bookstore or website.


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.

Opening Chaos!   Please forgive the sight paint smell and occasional sound of a construction.  We started small, and still have 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!  It is really been great to see our customers again.
