Square Books

Square BooksSquare Books, a local bookstore founded in 1979, is consistently ranked among the best independent bookstores in the country. A sister store, Off Square Books, which is several doors down the street to the east, deals in used and remainder books and is the venue for a weekly radio show called Thacker Mountain Radio, with host Jim Dees, that is broadcast state-wide on Mississippi Public Broadcasting. A third store, Square Books Jr., deals exclusively in children’s books and educational toys.

“The finest bookstore in America. How could a bookstore in this small town have ‘The Store’, Off Square Books and Square Books Junior. Only Richard Howorth could do that successfully. Wonderful asset.”
