26 Years and Counting!

     Twenty-six years ago, our founder and matriarch, Elaine Dessler knew what she wanted. She envisioned a place where readers could go to feel at home and browse through thousands of books in a warm family atmosphere. It would be a place where book lovers could buy their favorite books at great prices and even trade in their used books for credit. This could only become a reality by dedication to her guidelines and with very special customers like you. We hope to carry on Elaine's legacy and continue to improve and provide the best to you in the years to come. Thank you for your continued patronage.


  In Memory of Elaine              On August 3rd, we commemorate the birthday of our beloved founder and matriarch, Elaine Dessler.  "Love you, big uppa sky!"

Our Mascots

   One day, while prospecting for gold in the hills of Western Pennsylvania, the ground beneath Redmond Aloysius Goodbook caved in and he fell into an abandoned coal mine below. In the fall, Red broke an arm and a leg and he was unable to escape on his own.

   After being trapped for two days and nights alone in the mine shaft with only a few books to read, a stray mule happened to come across the place where the old prospector fell through the ground. As it turns out, old Red was able to toss a rope up to the animal which pulled him slowly but surely up to safety.

   Red tried to find out where the mule came from but no one seemed to know. He finally decided to adopt the animal as his own and on Nov. 1, 2005, our loyal customers helped name Red's new companion. Since then, Red A. Goodbook and Milo have become inseparable and they now serve proudly as our trusted mascots.
