Mystery Bookstore is that local gem of a bookstore that you just know and love. It's a special place where you know the other patrons as well as the staff. It's that place that provokes idea and conversation. It's, well, a lot like home. And a lot like school, and a lot like all of these special places combined into one beautiful bookstore.

We recently opened up our doors for business after moving from our previous South Austin location. A huge thank you to Apple Moving for their support during our difficult relocation. Please come visit us at our new location for coffe, conversation, and great reads!
