No additives, 
no preservatives. 
Pure bookselling, naturally. 
Corporate-free since 1981 (!).
3rd: We'll check the new book warehouses, both local and national. Turnaround time is typically within a week, and you'll get your new book discount as well.
​4th: We'll search for it- at neighboring independent stores... (we partner with other used bookstores in the metro area and exchange reserve lists).
​5th: ...and on the Net. Our network (with over 15 million hard-to-find and/or rare books) stretches around the state and across the country. 

​ We'll connect you to 
great books and great buys!  

We Make Reading Easy!
Looking for a particular book?
1st: We'll check our store. We have over 60,000 books in our 4,000+ square foot store. You'll be pleasantly surprised by our selection. 
​2nd: We'll reserve it for you. We can reserve titles in our computer system; when that book is traded in, we'll contact you - no charge.
​-(2a?!): Our system also keeps track of the titles you buy, so you won't buy the same title twice. How cool is that?!!

"Great store. Great staff!"
"The best bookstore I've ever used. Reps really know the books on the shelves! Really saves me time when I ask and KNOW that I'll receive the CORRECT answer - they know their stock and it's a real pleasure doing business with them."

The Books Connection is a proud supporter of the Boy's Juvenile Detention Center, Spectrum Human Services of Southeastern Michigan. We buy new books suitable for boys ages 12+ for the library/book club the boys themselves have formed (!!we get a kick out of telling people that!!). If you'd like to contribute, we have a small Angel Tree table (of low-priced knick-knacks, books, etc.), we have an Angel Tree jar for any spare change you may wish to contribute, and we sell used jigsaw puzzles for $2 each. All proceeds go to the program. For more information on Spectrum, visit www.spectrumhuman.org.
Welcome back (!) We have left our home of 20+ years on Seven Mile and Middlebelt and are now at 31208 Five Mile, the northeast corner of Five Mile and Merriman (in the same strip as Dollar Tree)!
