Mac’s Backs has three floors of new and used books and is located in Coventry Village, a walking neighborhood just minutes from Cleveland’s museums and Case Western Reserve University. We have a large selection of classics, mysteries, science fiction, and non-fiction. Mac’s Backs also hosts readings, book signings, author events, storytelling, book clubs, and writing groups. We are a member of BookSense, a partnership between independent and community bookstores nationwide.
Mac’s is a book exchange. We trade for books and give you credit to use towards used books. This is a great way to save money when you are buying used books. We are always trading for classics, fiction, mysteries, science fiction and non-fiction. Call us for more information or stop in for a copy of our trade policy.
You can order new books from our website. This website features a huge database of books that are in print. It is NOT a database of our inventory. Most of these are readily available, though, and can be ordered for in-store pickup within a week. The book may already be in stock but if not we can get it very quickly. Some of the books may be special orders that will take longer and in that case we will notify you immediately. Thank you for shopping locally!
