About Us



Letters Bookshop is an independent store specializing in gently used books, carefully selected new paperbacks and hardcovers, as well as a children's section stocked with new and used books.


Land Arnold, a veteran Triangle bookseller, has always imagined every empty storefront as a bookstore. Letters opened in December 2013 when he finally found the right spot in the heart of downtown Durham. We moved to a new, larger space in July 2021.
