Located in the Portsmouth neighborhood in Portland, Oregon Windows Booksellers is a purveyor of fine scholarly books, specializing in literature, philosophy, theology, and history.
"For the Mind, Soul, and pure Pleasure of Reading"
Windows Booksellers is a provider of quality used books in the humanities for our friends, neighbors, and the scholarly world.
Since we opened our first store in Eugene in 1988, we have been buying and selling quality used books in the areas of literature, theology, history, philosophy, archaeology, Judaica, and so on. We have taken a strange path––we carry few new books, focusing instead on stocking our two stores with enduring works of scholarship in the humanities, great fiction, and other timeless, classic books. To paraphrase Llewyn Davis: "If it was never new, and will never grow old, it’s a book you’d find on our shelves."
Whether it’s a Stegner novel, Dickinson’s poetry, a study on the Qumran origins of Sermon on the Mount, or Douglas’ Bondage & Freedom, our selection philosophy is simple: we seek to curate books that are worth reading. If you drop by and browse, we hope you will find something stimulating, curious, challenging, and perhaps something pointing to the truth and love that holds all things together.
