WE BUY BOOKS - ONE BOOK OR A LIBRARY
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. We are also trying something new, Getman's Virtual Book Fair. It will be held online each First Tuesday - Thursday. 150 booksellers will offer 15 items each, none of which are listed anywhere else. You'll deal directly with the seller. We had some success with the first fair and are ready to participate in the next one, from noon on July 7 until 6 PM (EDT) on July 9.
If you order totals $25 or more, domestic Media Mail shipping is free. The USPS has dramatically increased international shipping rates. The listed rates are estimates. Please ask for a quote before ordering. We will ship as economically as we can. We are keeping Media Mail rate the same, but if you want Priority shipping, tell us and we'll check both flat rate and by weight.
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).
