“Never again!”

Singing Wind Bookshop
Ranked #7 of 18 things to do in Benson
Attraction details
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Even though there seems to be a large selection of western books here, I cannot recommend this shop.
Firstly, its out in the boondocks. If you make a wrong turn you end up on private property. Kinda scary.
Secondly, none of the book shelves are marked. There is nothing telling you what kind of books are where. What kind of book store doesn't want their customers to find the books they want? Thirdly, they do not take credit or debit cards. In 2014!.
Also, it is not handicap friendly. If you are in a wheelchair, forget about coming here.
Lastly, I had the unpleasant experience of meeting the owner, Winn. O M G!! Talk about bad energy!! I've heard the stories about her, but hoped they weren't true. They were!!! Never again will I grace the threshold of this evil place.

Located on a working cattle ranch, this book store was opened by Winn Bundy when she realized her personal collection had grown beyond bounds. The shop is filled with books on every possible subject. I'm told Mrs. Bundy has tales about each book, but she was not in when we visited. The guide I had was nice but didn't share any stories.
You'll find books by and about Arizonans and books by Jimmy Carter and political books and history books and poetry and cookbooks and gift cards and oh... way too much to continue. Monthly events bring in local and not-so-local talent. It's a wonderful place to visit. Call for directions.

This is an unusual bookshop, many little rooms, Mrs. Bundy, the owner knows every book in that shop, she is a wealth of information. Twice a year she has a function where she brings in poets, singers, authors, has food to share and of course you are expected to purchase a CD, Book, etc...to help pay for these entertainers expenses getting there. It's fun, it's social and just an interesting place to see....Books, Books, Books, everywhere.
