About the Book Rack

The basic operation of the store has always been to accept books in trade for store credit and allow customers to use that credit toward the purchase of a different used paperback book. It is an elegantly simple process that gives significant benefit to the avid reader while allowing The Book Rack to thrive. 
Owned by Bob & Claudia Applegate, the inventory of The Book Rack has grown from 20,000 books in 2008 to over 65,000 today.
