What are we?
Humpus Bumpus is a fine, independent, neighborhood bookstore. We are in an old brick house with fireplaces, hardwood floors and loaded with charm in the old style!
We are a general bookstore, selling used and new books in most categories. The cornerstone of our services is our very popular book exchange program which enables our customers to use trade credit against our already low used book prices.
We also carry loads of new books including school reading lists, and new releases. Our prompt special ordering service provides the rest!
…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!
Why shop independent bookstores
Big stores and internet stores are dehumanizing. 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!
Den of Deep Discounts!
We also have a large room in the center of the store called the Den of Deep Discounts! All the books in this room are used, and are priced from only one to five dollars! The stock in this room changes constantly because of the low prices. This means that the selections are always fresh and interesting. Grab a basket and fill up with loads of great books cheap!
Best Ways to Use Humpus Bumpus?
- Come in and enjoy books in a way that can’t be done in today’s impersonal, on-line culture.
- Pick up a phone! If we don’t have it on the shelf, we can probably get it for you in a few days and save you the hassle of ordering on line from strangers!
Private French Tutoring plus Monthly Conversation Group
Humpus Bumpus offers private French tutoring at very reasonable rates. We also offer (free) French conversation at 10 AM on the first Saturday of each month in our Events Room. Participants range in competency from beginners to native speakers. As they say in Paris, “Y’all come!”
