     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.  Our email is [email protected] and  Lee's cell is 706-263-0152. 
     Join us next weekend, September 25-27, for the CABS-Minnesota Virtual Book Fair, which benefits the Antiquarian Book Seminars programs and scholarship fund.  The participants, all 130 of us, are either CABS alums or faculty and we will be showcasing 9 items each with links to our websites and catalogs. If you shopped any of the Getman's Virtual Book Fairs this summer, you'll be familiar with the format. 


     We do not have an open shop, but we are always glad to open the book room for you. (Well, not right now!)  Call ahead to make sure we are here,  706-263-0152 (Lee's cell).
