Sometimes you want the newest title, the hottest thing, the most popular series. We keep these titles in house at all times. Following NPR’s The Great American Read, we stock favorites that readers return to again and again in new, hardcover, and paperback versions so you can have that new-book feel in your hands.
Find out the book you want isn’t in house? No problem. Head on over to our ‘custom ordering’ section.
We believe in reducing waste, recycling information, and re-using titles that our customers will love. Many of the 25,000 books that line our shelves are gently used, we are quite proud of that! From obscure genres to local authors to New York Time’s Best Sellers to an enormous children’s section, there’s something for everyone. Our emphasis is on quality used books so you can find a good book in good shape for a good price.
Have something of your own in mind? Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift, waiting for a new title to hit the shelves, or want something specific we don’t have, it’s pretty simple.
Just tell us and we’ll order it for you.
Most books come in within 3 shipping days (FREE SHIPPING), so you can get reading as soon as possible.
We are a small town. We know our neighbors, and support our friends. We believe in the power and importance of ‘local first.’ More than just opening our doors each day, we do what we can to encourage and endorse those around us.
We support literacy programs with our local library, we support local schools and sports teams. We buy back books and do what we can to give kids in our community a safe place to learn. We will always promote books by Michigan authors, and host book signings and other community events when we can.
As we grow, we’d love to hear from you, our community, to find out how we can better serve one another. It is our hope to develop reading programs, host poetry slams and writers groups, and more. If you’d like to host an event with us, reach out. We look forward to hearing from you.

We are an eclectic mix of individuals' who didn’t want to see books leave our community. For good reason… There are only 3 bookstores within the 6 counties that border ours!
With no retail experience between us, we’ve relied on our love of the written word, our love of the community, and a LOT of help from our friends our hope for responsible growth in Newaygo County through the arts to grow Flying Bear Books.
With intentions to only get more involved with our neighborhood. We'd love to meet you. We invite you to stop in, browse the shelves, host a gathering, start a book club, and basically participate however you'd like
