“You do not need to burn books to destroy a culture.
You only need to stop people reading them.”

Mr. Bookman, is a meticulously sorted new and used bookstore, which houses over 100,000 books and other non-media items! There is a large selection of books signed by the authors, a whole room dedicated to antique books, a large children’s section, LPs, CDs, DVDs, and even video games. This is possibly the biggest and best book store in Western Pennsylvania!
The dream for this business began 11 years ago in Ben and Christy Wilkinson‘s basement, when they covered their pool table in a handful of books to sell on Amazon. From there the books filled their table, then their garage, eventually overflowing into a shed outside their home. Shortly after that, they moved into a building, then on to another better building, and now it is this amazing bookstore. Ben, being a native of England, truly makes this bookstore a perfect example of the American Dream coming true.
