At Front Street Books, independence is the watchword for bookselling. We follow our own and our customers’ decisions on what to stock in our store—and we have a broad and deep, personal, selection.
We’ve served Alpine, Marathon, and the Big Bend area of West Texas since 1994. Our inventory includes new, used, and out-of-print titles. It emphasizes local and regional subjects, of course, but we carry all the national/ regional bestsellers and a broad range of other topics, favoring History, Science, Natural History, Literature, Children's Fiction and Non-Fiction, Religion and Spirituality, Cookbooks, General Fiction, and Science Fiction and Fantasy.
We ship orders all over Texas and the U.S. What you don’t find in our store online, we’ll get in a jiffy from our shelves or from a wholesaler and send it anywhere you are. All you have to do is call us or email us with your requests.
