The Book Man boasts more than a quarter-million titles between its two stores, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, be sure to ask! Staff are happy to check their perfectly databased inventory, and if they can’t find it in-stock, they can usually bring it in new within two weeks, or can put in a request and call you when it’s found if you’re not in a hurry or prefer used.

As always, gift certificates remain a staple Christmas item at The Book Man. They’re redeemable at both locations, and there’s nothing better than giving the gift of imagination and inspiration.
