I've never been a paying customer before but called up and left a message with a couple of questions. Michelle returned my phone call promtly and gave me great answers. She took time to make sure she understood what I was asking, and made sure to give me the best answer possible. Thanks for the great customer service Michelle. more

It is a house, of books. Really! 8/4/2006

Okay, the book house is moving! I'm not sure to "where" it is moving, but I saw a sign the last time I was there. This place is packed to the brim with books. They do have a good collection of very old books in each category. The book house is off of the main street, pushed back a bit, and it is really in an old house. It looks creepy, and if just that is enough to make you think of horror movies, don't go in the bargain basement. The basement is spooky and musty, and unless you really need those $.25 books, I'd avoid it. It is a cool shop mind you, with a great kitty! more

My Favorite Used Book Store 8/4/2005

Whenever I'm overwhelmed with books and need to clear out some space, this is my favorite place to take books to trade them in. They offer a fair trade in value and even though I usually walk out with about the same number of books that I've taken in, with trade in value, I usually come out even. The atmosphere is my favorite part of The Book House. It's not unusual to see a cat curled up somewhere, people lounging around reading a page or two and just a general relaxed atmosphere. When I have time to kill and a book urge, I can usually be found here. more

Owner Message

  • The Book House has been open since 1985 as an open shop and an online store under the ownership of Michelle Barron and her family. We are located in a charming historic Victorian house built in 1865. We are about 15 minutes from downtown St. Louis where an eclectic mix of quality rare, out of print, new, and used books are tucked into nine rooms on three floors of winding staircases filled with nooks and crannies, and a dungeon we call the 'bargain basement'. Our house is patrolled by two store cats, Chaucer and Blake, as well as one ghost. Our extensive used, rare, and out of print holdings have been collected for years, and represent some of the finest in the Midwest. We have wonderful selections of children's and illustrated books, 19th and 20th century literature, poetry, drama, military history, art, architecture, and photography. Our science fiction, cookbook, philosophy, religion, and mystery collections are huge. A portion of our proceeds now support Second Chapter Life Cen ter, a non-profit supporting young adults with special needs and their families.. We began selling used and rare books,but The Book House has evolved to carry a wide selection of new and front list books. We work with distributors,publishers,and authors to carry an eclectic selection of new books,small press,self published,and limited editions as well as most of the Independent Book Sellers Book Sense Picks. We have art,children's and adult literature,St. Louis,and Missouri items. WE CAN ORDER ANYTHING! We host book signings,book clubs,and events. Please check our calendar. We now have a website to help us reach our customers any way possible. Search our inventory database through left search bars or browse catalogues on the lower right. Our over 35,000 books listed here are less than 10 of our stock. We buy buy hundreds of books each week and we will never have them all in the computer,so browse our listings or place an order or request through the secure shopping cart. If you do not see something here,let us know because we might still have it or can get it. We also have a Books in Print search for all of the latest titles,and some obscure ones.
