BI (BOOK ISLE /eBookIsle) is a family business run by two friends (Cy and Michele) who will personally search and/or order items to 'feed your need to read' because we share your book addiction.  Cy answers emails and mails book orders while Michele handles all brick store requests.

We care about the books we sell and your satisfaction because we are booklovers like you.  Simply stated - we share your desire for good condition, inexpensive books.  So, if you do not find what you are looking for listed online, please email Cy and we will do what we can to fill your book wishes. Please be specific when making special requests (i.e. author name, title, series title) if you are not using our Offline Search Request form.  

Also, if you would like to order from BOOK ISLE, but would feel more comfortable ordering in person, please telephone the store. 

If you need to inquire about your order, please attach a copy of your order email or your order number or at least provide your full name so we can both be "on the same page."
