A Novel Bookstore

Logo of Novel Books

Aisle filled with booksA Novel Bookstore, across from the City Park in Yelm, is an eclectic bookstore that blends Sci-Fi, Thrillers, Westerns, Romance novels, Graphic Novels, Children’s books and a variety of non-fiction with a growing selection of unique esoteric titles that only Yelm can manifest. We also carry the largest selection of metaphysical books in the South Sound.

We began as a paperback exchange in June 2007 and have outgrown that moniker. We trade in softcover, hardcover, audio books, DVD’s, and CD’s. Book oriented gifts also adorn our walls and shelves.

With more than 40,000 titles in our store and more online I feel we have a book for everyone! To find our more than 3000 books listed on Amazon just click here!

Bob Maddox“Purchasing this bookstore was a wild lark experience for my wife and I. While I have a lot of retail sales experience I had no preparation for running a full business. The knowledgeable Enterprise for Equity staff taught me step by step not only how to create and follow a business plan but the very real reasons to have one. I discovered I don’t have to live in reaction to the market and its financial climate but can chart a course that will allow me to choose the timing and quantity of my investments in the business.” – Bob Maddox, owner of A Novel Bookstore and graduate of E4E.
