The Book Mart is located in what was once a 1950’s era motel on US Hwy. 19 S. in Perry. We are often told that walking through our doors is like “going back in time to old Florida”.
Our specialty is Floridiana, books about the history, culture and people of the sunshine state. We hand pick our selection of books ranging from tomes on Florida History to the latest cracker western to small publications rarely found outside of historical societies.
Books on Florida’s native people as well as arrowheads and artifact guides can also be found in our Floridiana section. Customers from all over the state stop by to peruse what’s new in Florida’s past.
You will also find an array of other new books in our store including children’s literature, dictionaries, study guides, books on organic gardening and sustainable living and of course, the best selling book of all time, the Bible.
Our selection of Christian books includes Bibles of all versions, bindings and colors, plus study guides, reference books, commentaries and inspirational literature. Custom name imprinting is free for Bibles purchased at the Book Mart.
In our used book section, you'll find over 25,000 used books including paperback fiction (westerns, romance, general fiction, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy and historical), hardback fiction and non-fiction. Our back room boasts over 1,000 vintage and used cookbooks as well as history books, textbooks, self-help, science and math, travel and more.
