The Book Rack of the Quad Cities consists of two local, independent bookstores located in Davenport, Iowa and Moline, Illinois. We sell both new books and used books, which enables us to have an excellent selection of titles, including many that are out of print. If we do not have a book you are looking for, we also special order new books. And if you're looking for ways to save money, bring in your used books for store credit.
All of our staff is well read, and knowledgeable in various genres including science fiction, romance, children's and mystery, just to name a few. We love books, and we love to help you pick the perfect one. We are proud to be a part of the Quad Cities community, and the independent bookselling community. We are also proud members of the Book Rack family of stores, the American Booksellers Association and Indie Bound.
The Book Rack family of stores is the largest group of independently owned bookstores in the country, with approximately 100 stores from coast to coast. The Book Rack exists for people like you, who simply love to read books. Not to mention hold, talk about, share, and just be surrounded by them.
Our roots go back to the early 1960s, which might explain the Book Rack’s somewhat free-spirited development. Our stores are connected by a common thread of trading and selling used books, but cookie-cutter we are not. Each store is a unique, independent establishment, shaped organically by its owners and customers. While the trade-in policy and inventory differ from store to store, what you will find at every Book Rack is a great selection of books —and people who are as crazy about them as you are.
