Picture yourself as the owner of a book store.

After more than 30 years in business we have decided that it is time to relax and let someone else take over ownership and the daily running of the bookstore. If you have an interest in owning the bookstore, or would like to learn more about this opportunity, please contact Michael Mitchell at 804-381-6667, or Michael@BRGBrokers.com.

Rare books make great gifts!

In the digital information age, a hand-picked rare book stands out as something truly special. Did you know that we have thousands of used and rare books available online? We have been collecting for over 30 years. Go ahead and browse awhile.

We offer...

  • Convenient, Ample Parking
  • Discounts on New York Times Bestsellers
  • Delivery and shipping available
  • Cozy, old-fashioned bookstore atmosphere

  • Foreign language section

Book People is located just south of the corner of Granite and Patterson Avenues with ample parking to the side of the store.

We special order books, read books and have an excellent track record of locating out of print books for our customers. Both in-store shoppers and telephone orders are welcome. We delight in face-to-face transactions, but attend to domestic and international phone-in mail orders promptly as well. Our inventory is NOT computerized, apart from over 3,700 collectible titles listed with AbeBooks. We are proud to rely on our brains instead.
