JC's Books

Mystery, History, Classics, and More! Poetry, Westerns, and Kids Books Galore!

For me, there has never been anything I enjoy more than perusing the shelves of a quiet, orderly, old fashioned book store. Peacefully searching until I had spotted just the right book was always the best way to spend an afternoon. I didn't want to hurry, or be interrupted; only to relax and enjoy. It was a way to escape from busy schedules, phone calls and demanding agendas. At JC's Books, we want you to feel this same pleasure. We believe the customer is number one. It is our desire to give you the best on-line shopping experience there is. Our aim is to bring you quality books at a good price; wrapped with care; and delivered quickly. Hopefully, it will be reminiscent of those days when the local bookstore was the best place to be.

A Difficult Time for All of Us - posted by JC's Books on March 21, 2020

In this unique time of slow down and social distancing, we are all worried to some degree; but yet there has been a great demonstration of caring and compassion. People are being so creative in their efforts to spend time with others. It is so encouraging. Along with that, it has also proven to be a great time to do the things one doesn't always have time to do. Watch an old movie, play board games with the kids, and walks with the pets.
