One of the best stop on my way home. I always try to stop by here after work and look for something that would be worth wasting time on.

Brazo's Bookstore is THE place in Houston for "book" people. The store stocks independent publishers that I can find no where else. The staff are all people who share the customers interests in fine literature. This is also THE place find book events where you can meet the author, meet other like minded people and find autographs. Wonderful store

What a joy to find a bookstore owned and staffed by knowledgable book lovers. Brazos Bookstore is the place in Houston to meet famous authors and discuss fine books. The New York Times called Brazos "Houston's premier literary marketplace - a Mecca for touring authors since 1974." And the surroundings are so comfortable - an island of serenity in a chaotic world. For these reasons and more, Brazos is my favorite bookstore.

This bookstore unfortunately is going down. It doesn't seem to be able to survive with a barnes and noble opening up nearby. The selection was good and it was fun to just go in and browse their selection. I found a lot of hard to find books and early editions here. Definitely a place to check out if you like books.

Looking for a good book? Looking for a bookseller who knows the subject matter, the title and the author (personally)? Brazos Book Store is the best book store in the city. If you want an expensive cup of coffee, or a plastic wrapped danish, or to read Teen Vogue magazine, go to some big chain. If you need a recommendation or a specific literary title, have an interest in the humanities, or want to hear an internationally acclaimed author read his/her work, go see Carl at Brazos.

It's so nice to finally shop in a bookstore where the staff knows what's going on and you don't have to traverse the length of a football field to check out! They have a great selection, especially in art and architecture books, and the staff is very helpful and knowledgeable.

Most thoughful selection of poetry, literary fiction, architecture books, children's books, travel guides and journals in Houston. The staff will order any books that the bookstore doesn't carry, and notify you when they arrive. It's fun to go in and browse.
