The Book Stop opened on Campbell Avenue in Tucson in 1967. Forty years later, in 2007, the store moved to 214 N. 4th Avenue, and although the neighborhood changed, our business model did not. We carry a wide variety of used, rare, out of print and scholarly books that are obtained, primarily, from our well-read customers.
The Book Stop offers a generous trade credit for books year round and buys judiciously December through May. House calls for very large collections of books can be arranged, but please call in advance for an appointment.
Book Stop is a browser’s paradise… stop by and see for yourself!
