Welcome to Bookie's!

Bookie's has long been a neighborhood independent bookstore on the South Side of Chicago. We've been helping our community to find their reading material for over 29 years.

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

On September 21, 2018, Bookie's added a second location in south suburban Homewood!

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.

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 one of the stores!
