Welcome to the all-new web site for Bookie's, a neighborhood independent bookstore on the South Side of Chicago. We've been helping our community to find their reading material for over 28 years.

Only July 1, 2017, Bookie's moved to a brand new double storefront on Western Ave.

We sell new and used books to all ages, from the newest bestsellers to the obscure, hard-to-find treasures that only a true bibliophile would appreciate.


Now, we've completely modernized our web site and store. 

From this site, you can purchase books and gift cards, see our upcoming store events, explore what we like and what we're reading, purchase audiobooks, purchase e-books, learn all about us and what we do, and sign up for various newsletters.

Please have a look around the site, but, more importantly, stop by the store!
