Indie Bookstore Snapshot: Paradox Books, Wheeling, West Virginia

A photo meme has been making the rounds on social media lately, and today it caught my eye. You may have seen it: a wooden board tacked up outside a book shop, encouraging people to buy used books 5/$2, or (and here’s something that you don’t see often anymore) if the store is closed, borrow them to read and pay later, OR at any time, if you can’t afford books and you need them, take them. No money necessary.

We want to give this store the thunderous applause and recognition it so richly deserves. Please visit Paradox Books, 2228 Market Street (in the Wheeling City Center Market), Wheeling, West Virginia, 26003. There’s no phone to call, no website to visit. But you have the power of the pen and postage stamps. Write a note, ask them to send you something and in return, send financial support.

Personally, I will be packaging up some of our stock for them to sell/read/give away/loan.
