You may have heard the news that The Morris Book Shop is up for sale. While this is a terribly sad time, we encourage everyone who has supported and loved The Morris Book Shop to take heart. Please click here to read a message from the current owner of the store, Wyn Morris. 

Wyn and the staff of The Morris Book Shop are positive this will be a transition rather than an ending, and we hope you can join us for our Anniverary Party this Saturday (July 16)

We are Lexington's independent, locally-owned, general-interest bookstore, selling 20,000 new books plus calendars, greeting cards, journals and more!

We have thousands of books and other items available for purchase through this website; please feel free to browse through our database of hundreds of thousands of available titles, but please note that not all titles listed are currently on-hand in our store at a given time. If you need a book immediately from our physical location, please call us at 859-276-0494 or send an email to and we will respond quickly.

We strongly believe that shopping for books should involve holding them in your hands, paging through them, and talking about them with other book lovers. So if you're in or near Lexington, Kentucky, we encourage you to come to the Morris Book Shop for the decidedly un-virtual experience of selecting your next book.
