OPEN for Readers who love to browse!! MASKS REQUIRED!

The Book Rack customers can come inside the store to browse our 65,000 books! Masks are required for anyone over the age of 2. 

We will continue to welcome book orders placed through this site and by email or phone. We are also continuing to offer curbside pickup for customers who are unable to shop in store or unable to wear a mask.

Be careful out there! Very, very careful!! We look forward to continuing to support you through this situation and beyond. 

Welcome to the home of The Book Rack. Please search or browse our inventory. If you can't find what you like please fill out our off-line search form. Any title we don't currently have we can also place in your account as a request and when it does come in we'll be alerted by our system and give you a call. This is a FREE, no obligation service, but one we are pleased to provide.

We offer shipping services to inmates in jails and prisons nationwide. The books must be purchased from our web site or at our store at 4764 Elmore Ave, Davenport, Iowa. Most institutions do not accept more than 5 books at a time nor hardcovers of any type. Please check with the authorities at the institution to insure you understand their limitations.

Teachers: Our store helps promote reading and that books are important. Bring your class by for a visit as part of a reading field trip! Give us a call and we can work on making your class visit a good one. And remember, if you are using your own money for classroom books (and what teacher doesn't?) you can use store credit donated by our customers toward 1/2 of your purchase to help out.

Thanks so much for searching our online inventory. Of course, one of a reader's great joys in visiting a bookstore is to browse and find unexpected treasures. Please stop in. If you have any questions please email us at [email protected] or call us at 563-355-2310.

If you did not find the book or books you were looking for, please try our FREE Search Service.

You do not need to set up an account in order to search, browse, or buy our books. ID and Password are required when you use the Check Out function. If you don't want to set up an ID and Password please e-mail us at [email protected] with your book order information.

Not in the Quad Cities Area?

You can still set up an account, trade in books for store credit, establish a "Request List" of books you want and take advantage of the many benefits that accompany a partnership with The Book Rack of the Quad Cities. 

We have regular customers from across the USA. Some ship books to us for trade credit of 25% of the cover price for paperbacks. Then, when they order books from our extensive inventory, their credit is applied toward 1/2 our regular price. They save far more than the cost of shipping a box of books via USPS Media Mail to us.

As some remote customers also do, you can provide us a list of the titles you want that we don't already have and we'll contact you when the books comes in. No obligation to buy but most do. If you want it we can ship it to you. We can even hold it for a few days in hopes more books come in for you to spread the shipping cost. And when you're in the neighborhood, we hope you will make a point of stopping in to browse in person and let us put a face with your name and phone voice.

Check back often since new titles are added hourly!
