Hidden Gem
May 2020
This little place is a hidden gem! Its super clean, and a quaint book joint! I bet you could find pretty much anything. I was searching for a copy of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, I emailed the book store and he had it. Arranged to pick up a day or so later. When I got there the book he handed me was IMMACULATE! Then he took be to show me where the additional Bach books were. I was able to get an IMMACULATE copy of Illusions as well! If your in search of a classic book then THIS is definitely the place to try!!

Classic Book Shop, 43436 Woodward Ave, Royal Oak MI.
Oct 2017 • Couples
My wife is an avid reader and bookworm. Thanks to Trip Advisor, I found the Classic Book Shop, 43436 Woodward Ave, Royal Oak, Michigan, and I took her to visit this shop. I, not my wife, ended up purchasing five (5) books. I know my prices thanks to many books that I have ordered on Amazon.com. I was pleased and yes, a bit shocked, to find that several of my favorites were less expensive than I have been paying Amazon. The owner / manager was very knowledgeable of his inventory and took me right to the book(s) I asked about. I rate this as an EXCELLENT used book shop.

Finally, as I was leaving, I asked the manager IF he knew where the Self Esteem Book Shop (no longer at its former location a few blocks North up Woodward Avenue) had gone to. He immediately told me it was still in business and that it had moved to 808 West 14 Mile Road in neighboring Clawson. My wife and I immediately drove to this location and he was absolutely correct. What a class gentleman he is to have done this for both my wife and me.

This bookstore is well organized and well stocked. I was able to locate a book I read as a young adult who is now in his 70's. The owner operator is very knowledgeable of his materials and can direct you to exactly what you need.

This place has a great selection of used books - lots of good history, etc. such as the autobiography of US Grant. If its still there next time I stop by I will get it,

Interesting Selection

Owner is not particularly helpful. Prices are very good. Not very generous when re-purchasing books.

Had a collectable book repaired here. And any place that has collectable MAD magazines can't be all bad, The owner can be a bit touchy, but that adds to the vibe.
