We have a seat waiting for you!

A place for the community of readers and the love of the written word.

About Us

Paper Trail Books is operated by two brothers, Dave and Scott Brown, with previous book-selling experience.  They are both book collectors, avid readers and come from a long family line of book lovers.  After working in various book stores from Chicago to Rochester Hills to Anchorage to Seattle, they decided to open a bookstore of their own. They want to provide quality customer service and good prices.  During most of your visits to the store, you will meet Dave, well known for his ability to help customers pick out just the right books for their reading pleasure. They have been very grateful for the warm and welcoming reception from the city and residents of Royal Oak.   

Our Vision

We seek to be an important community destination in downtown Royal Oak where you can find the book you are looking for or discover something entirely new.  We hope our events will help bring people together from the community of book lovers.
