Minus one more good book store
Galena, Illinois, is the largest shopping mall in the country, 10 city blocks of boutiques, specialty shops, restaurants, bars, ice cream parlors, furniture stores, antique stores, boutiques, candy stores and museums. What it needs is a few more good book stores. Two that have gone in recent years are Main Street Fine Books and Manuscripts, whose owner decided to go into private practice and do business by appointment, and Book World, another national chain that went kaput. Located at 300 South Main Street, Book World offered something of everything for the avid and casual reader...newly published books, rare books, comic books, magazines. Shoppers can find plenty of most everything on Main Street in Galena but books stores and men's clothing stores aren't two of them. Book World will be missed.

Book World coming to an end
2017年11月 • 夫妻情侣
Book World in Galena (and other locations) is going out of business, which is truly a shame. This store was a staple of every Galena visit that we made. It is a decent sized store without being overly huge, which offered a wide variety of books and magazines. Store(s) had a nice assortment of various media and genres, so that everybody was likely to find something that would appeal to them.

Truly sad to see this location as well as the entire Book World franchise come to an end.

Sad to see Book World go out of business after 40 years

Book World is one of those stores in Galena and elsewhere that just begs you to come in and browse through their store. With a lot of books and magazines, you should be able to find something that you like. When we were in Galena, we stopped in Book World and we found that all of the Book World stores will be closing within the next several months. The store in Galena has huge signs in the window. We'll be sad to see them go.

I love going into book stores and this one was a real treat. It was not that big but jam packed with a wide variety of books. The children's section was exceptional. I found some things not found in other stores. The clerk was friendly and helpful.

Small, but ok.

There was a wide variety to choose from, but not much you can't find other places. They had a wide variety of magazines to choose from as well, which was nice, and there were many that aren't easy to find.

All this -- and 3,000 magazines, too

Book World is a chain of 45 independent self-service book stores located in Illinois, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan and Minnesota. One of the chain's most recent stores is located in Galena, Illinois. It wasn't there the last time we visited. It is a welcome addition. Have you noticed how many book stores have closed in recent years? Borders? Book World offers reading material of every kind and subject, hardcovers and softcovers, best-sellers, comic books, children's books. And 3,000 magazines. Wow. The entire wall on the left side of the building, from the front of the store to the back, is filled with magazines...sports, news, entertainment, architecture, engineering, technology, visual and performing arts, business, health science, travel, politics. Have I missed anything? Trust me, if somebody wrote it, it's on the shelf at Book World. And there's more, including games and puzzles and newspapers, even stuffed animals. If there is anything I was looking for that I didn't find was a collection of rare books. They are increasingly difficult to find. In fact, Galena's major source of rare books recently went out of business. I know they are expensive--that's why they are rare, right?--but there are book collectors like myself who are constantly searching for old and rare books, especially first editions. But Book World apparently knows what is most attractive to customers.
