"Locally Owned And Operated For Almost 25 Years"

About Us

Almost 25 years ago I packed up all my worldly possessions, took two out of my three Boston Terriers and left Chicago to move to Bellevue, Iowa. I was 40 years old, very recently divorced and wasn't sure which was scarier, moving away from my family and friends or opening a book store with no retail experience. But here we are over 25 years later, definitely older, hopefully wiser and so very thankful and grateful! Many customers have walked through our doors as strangers and have left as our friends. Please stop in, we pride ourselves on the fact we are open 361 days out of the year, and of course you have to meet The BookWorm Boston Terrier!!!

While the Windmill Watched arrived promptly and I read it cover too cover and will cycle it through our Assisted Living. Great book if you have grown up on a farm and also in 4-H clubs could merit being on display People might like to order it on line. Some of my favorite recipes were also in the book.
