Flyleaf Books


Flyleaf Books will offer a wide range of book, magazine, and music selections. This includes just about every conceivable category including fiction, non-fiction, business, science, children’s, hobbies, collecting, and other types of books.

Our music selection will concentrate on CDs as these are the most popular and take up the least amount of floor space. In addition, we will be offering a competitive buy and trade service to assist in lowering our inventory acquisition costs and making our store more attractive to our customers. We also offer a search and order service for customer seeking hard to find items. Another less obvious service to our customers will be the relaxed “reading room” type atmosphere that we will encourage through the placement of chairs, couches, and etc. We strongly encourage our customers to spend as long as they like reading through our book selection and enjoying a quiet, relaxing environment. Our store hours will be 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Saturday. Once profitability becomes stable, we will extend these hours.
