WE BUY BOOKS - ONE BOOK OR A LIBRARY
The virtual book fairs of 2020 are coming to an exciting end December 4-7 with Getman's Holiday Book Fair. This is a great opportunity to shop for the bibliophiles on your gift list, as well as special goodies for yourself. The Ridge Books will be offering a variety of items, from a pair of "bookish" candle sticks, to a nice facsimile edition of A Christmas Carol with Arthur Rackham illustation, accompanied by a Tiny Tim and Bob Cratchit figurine to a couple of Westvaco's Christmas editions. There will be some collectors' cookbooks as well as signed first editions and slipcased special editons. A few Christmas-themed books are also included. Be sure to check back the last day, Monday December 7, for newly listed items. We are offering free shipping in the US and free gift wrap if you really want an easy shopping experience.
Welcome to the home of THE RIDGE BOOKS, located in Calhoun, Georgia and opened in 1998 by Bob and Lee Linn. Please search or browse our inventory of hard to find, out of print, used and rare books and ephemera. Our current African-American catalog may be accessed by clicking on the link at the left. Use our Search feature to check for books that are not listed and we'll try to locate them for you.
Due to the COVID-19 virus, Book Fairs have been cancelled or postponed, but we are still open online. Order through this website or email or call us with questions. Mail service has been slow. Please consider Priority and we'll charge the exact rate. Our email is [email protected] and Lee's cell is 706-263-0152.
We do not have an open shop, but we are always glad to open the book room for you, with masks and social distancing. Curbside (well driveway!) pickup is also an option. Please call ahead, 706-263-0152 (Lee's cell).
