Is your thirst for knowledge borderline Faustian? Is your home library missing that first edition copy of A Confederacy of Dunces? Is claustrophobia not an issue for you? If the answer is affirmative for any one of these questions than Quarter Price Books is your place.
Here in this tiny yet bountiful store, bibliophiles, open-minded thinkers, and collectors, can spend hours perusing through its fantastic collection of first editions, rarities, signed copies, and literary treasures passionately curated by its owner.
Its selection ranges from World Class Literature, Arts and Sciences, Photography, Law, NASA, Classic Literature, Children’s Books, Doctoring, Texas History, and Best Books in the World.
