Hey everyone! We are Peter and Megan Blackshear, the owners of Bookbound - An Independent Community Bookstore. After the closing of Borders, where Peter worked for many years, it was time to start the next chapter of our lives. Given our love of books along with our desire to stay in Ann Arbor, we realized that opening a community bookstore was what we really wanted to do and that there was no better place to do it. Bookbound is a general, independent bookstore and we provide a rich selection of books and other items in our charming space.
Whether you show up looking for a specific title, a perfect gift, or a few bucks and an open mind, we look forward to helping you find exactly what you need.
Bookbound is located at 1729 Plymouth Road, Ann Arbor, Michigan - in the Courtyard Shops across from University of Michigan's North Campus. Click here for directions:
We are in building B on the side facing building C -- spots 28 & 29:
