Your Neighborhood Bookstore

Our mission is to create a warm, friendly atmosphere in which to browse, meet other book people, and to find the books you want plus hundreds of hidden gems you weren't even looking for - a great literary treasure hunt!

Big stores and internet stores take the interaction out of book shopping. Your independent bookstore is a place where people can connect in a personal way over common interests. It's a place where you can relax, look at books, talk about them with strangers and feel perfectly at home.

Who Are We?

 Why Shop Independent?

Humpus Bumpus is a fine, independent, neighborhood bookstore. We are in an old brick house with fireplaces and hardwood floors - we're so charming we can hardly handle it!

We are a general bookstore, selling new and used books in many categories. The cornerstone of our services is our very popular trading policy which enables customers to use trade credit against our already very low prices.

We also carry new books for school reading, and we can always make special orders!

“My family loves this book store!!! We have loved it for 10 years.”
