Discover Your Next Favorite Author at After-Words

A good book store is hard to find, especially these days with the ease of buying online and plenty of audio options. For the real things – a classic, old fashioned book store – check out After-Words on the north side of downtown. This store incorporates a little bit of everything into one well-organized space. Both new and used titles, great prices, and knowledgeable staff have kept After-Words around for all these years against the internet giants. Utilize After-Words to find an old favorite among the plethora of used books, or shop the latest releases and small specialty merchandise any time a gift-worthy occasion or holiday rolls around. 

After-Words has very few places to sit, but the staff gives you plenty of space to browse the stock. It’s calm and quiet inside, with two full floors of books to discover. After-Words is open seven days a week, and is located on East Illinois Street just around the corner from North State Street.
