Location: Long Beach, California, United States

We have had an open store since 1987. We've been online since 1997. We moved to our larger (about 1800 square feet) location at 5422 E. Village Road, Long Beach CA 90808 in January of 1999. Von's bought the Shopping center where our old store was located (4174 Woodruff, Lakewood, CA 90713) and was planning to tear it all down and remodel. Construction of the new Von's finished as of January 2001. They didn't remodel our site after all. The move seems to have been for the best, as the new location has been much better for us. The New(er) Location has a Genuine Vault, leftover from when the building was a Jewelry Store in the 40's. It is now the depository of our 1st Editions and Collectibles. We have a large selection of both Paperback and Hardback books (somewhere in the neighborhood of 35,000+ items). We have a wide selection of books with no topics excluded. We have a large collection of Signed Books and Military Books. Our staff is fairly knowledgeable in the fields of Military, Mystery, SF, Fantasy, Romance & more. Visit our site Once Read Books if you have any questions, comments, or want any more info.

Travel via Book

We just got in a large collection of travel books, and they are already out on the shelves. There are some of our older travel books in the $1.00 books now too.
Oddly this entire pickup load of books were carefully packed into fake log boxes (Dura-flame and the like), the stack of them sitting there was very Fahrenheit 451-ish.

New Military Books

The last of that Military collection from last year is in, and will be going up on the shelves in the next few weeks.

Reorganized the Military

The Military area has been reorganized, everything's still there, but the Ships are together, and the Aircraft section is more organized.

Armed Services Edition paperbacks

Just got in a nice collection of Armed Services Edition paperbacks. A couple dozen, more than we've had in some time. They are mostly in the vault.

Moved the Postcards

The Postcards are (almost) all now in the postcard file cabinet (and in the rack atop it) near the end of the counter under the window.
