Pflugerville Texas Used Book Store - Beth's Book Box - Cozy, Friendly and Inexpensive

I was on my way home today via a different route, and there was a sign that caught my eye - "Book Box".  As a voracious reader, I rarely pass up thebeth's book box - pflugerville, texas chance to visit a used book store, and this was no exception.  

 

I am happy to report that Pflugerville now has a quaint, comfortable used book store.  Frankly, this is the kind of place where I am likely to become a regular customer.  With prices on the discount shelf at $1 or $2, and most other prices in the $5 and under range, this is my kind of place.  They also purchase and give store credit for used books.  My wife and I are known to spend entire Saturday mornings perusing garage sales for books, so this store is a dream come true.  

 

While I was there, I spoke for awhile with Beth Lee, the owner/manager.  She is an engaging, down-to-earth lady and I love the fact that she is following her passion with this business.

 

There are a few extras that will surely grow the business over time, including free coffee, free wifi access, a kids' section with some toys, and some VERY comfortable chairs set up for reading.  The store features art from locals and kiddos, too, and Beth told me that they repaint the ceiling tiles (currently featuring kids' artwork) every few weeks.  They offer a storytime that is geared to kids 2-6 on Thursdays and Saturdays at noon, and they are open to having church, scouting, and other community events or meetings.  

 

pflugerville texas book storeIn a nutshell, Beth has done a very nice job of providing a casual atmosphere that could become a terrific venue or hangout for smaller groups.  While I was there, Beth accepted some items for donations to our troops, which reinforced the fact that she is making an effort to be an integral part of the community with her venture, and I applaud this.

 

Beth's Book Box first opened about six months ago, and my sole complaint is that I didn't manage to find it sooner.  Books are my vice, and I left with a couple of good reads today.  

 

Beth's is located near the corner of Windermere and Pecan Street, on the north side of Pecan.  There used to be a Greek restaurant in the space, which makes for some interesting architecture with the store layout.  The physical address is 15803 Windermere, and they can be reached at 512-989-7324.  Their primary website is http://bethsbookbox.com.  

 

They are closed on Mondays, open Tues-Sat 10am-6pm, Sundays 12-5pm.  

 

If you are a book addict, I highly recommend checking this place out.
