About Us

Paper Trail Books opened up in August, 2017 in downtown Royal Oak.  We stock around 20,000 used books as well as carry a selection of new books from local authors and other publishers such as Wayne State Press and Arcadia Press.  We also carry an assortment of collectibles, gift items, greeting cards, and music.  Come check us out and play our store piano or play a game of chess or checkers.

Our Vision

We seek to be an important community destination in downtown Royal Oak where people can find the book they are looking for or discover something entirely new.  In addition, we plan to host a variety of events that will help bring more people together from the community of book lovers.
