About Gottwals Books
Our goal is to provide a great selection of used and new books with fair prices, an incredible array of special order options, and fantastic value for trade credit (for used books) and cash purchases (for college textbooks). Plus, our staff will always serve with a smile. Around here, we all love books. That’s why Gottwals Books and Walls of Books® intend to promote the joy of reading with every book sold.
