"You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax; all you need is a book" – Dr. Seuss
The Book Rack Used Books & Curiosities is located at the corner of Lake and Knoxville, in the Oak Cliff Shopping Center, just a few doors down from Monical’s Pizza. It has been in business for almost 40 years! That’s a long time to be servicing the Peoria and surrounding areas with reasonably priced reading entertainment.
My name is Stacy Hardin and I am the new owner of this fine establishment. I began shopping at The Book Rack when I was 12 years old! I spent many Saturday afternoons here, perusing the romance section. I was wildly in love with Harlequin Romances and Silhouette Desire Romances.
Now that I am older – I won’t tell you how old – my tastes have changed. I no longer read those types of romance novels; I prefer women’s fiction, paranormal, and suspenseful material now. My favorite book of all time is The Talisman by Stephen King.
I truly hope to be running The Book Rack for the next 30 plus years. If you are in the need of a great book or just want to pop in and check things out, please don’t hesitate to do so. I very much look forward to meeting each and every one of you!
