  4. Kids & Young Adult Goodies – Stock up on the latest and greatest kids books from the selection of over 15,000 titles or choose from almost 100 unique Lego Minifigures (and get a Lego book while you’re at it!).

  5. Foodie & Wellness Books – Choose from an impressive array of Instant Pot, Ketogenic, Dutch Oven, Paleo, Vegan and Freezer Meal cookbooks. The Book Man stays on top of dietary trends to ensure that you have the perfect cookbook to accompany that tricky new appliance or cooking style.

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.
