I have always loved Book People, and I’ve always wanted to get a job there. I believe it is the largest local bookstore in Texas. I love reading about the birth of Book People in the Cafe where they have an oversized comic strip explaining how it came about.
I will miss it when I move, but of course there will always be Book People online. I just went there the other day to buy a Fahter’s Day gift. I bought him a book and some bacon shaped band-aides. They’ve always got the coolest funniest gifts there.
I’m not really a Book People fan. The place is pretty expensive, and when Alton Brown came to do a book signing they weren’t admitting you unless you bought a book (the books were $40+). I would have given in and bought a book, but my friend already had one of his books and they still wouldn’t admit her unless she bought another one. I thought that was bullshit, so we left.over 6 years ago
I love this place. I love it because it isnt just books here.. you find all kind of things filling up the spaces in between. Jewelry,scarves,tshirts,statues…you name it really. This is a place i could go for hours. hell if i could move in and never leave i would be happy and content.over 7 years ago
I’ve been known to spend hours upon end in Book People reading design books, cook books and history books without being hassled by staff or fellow shoppers. The prices can be a little high if you don’t purchase the book(s) on sale, but the environment is nice and the fact that it’s such an incredible independant book store makes my decision to choose Book People over Border’s or Barnes and Noble an easy one.over 7 years ago
