For years I dreamed of one day opening a bookstore, but I went to school, became a nurse and spent over 20 years working in a doctors office. In 1987, I opened my store with fewer than 8,000 books on the shelves. Today, Nan's Pre-Owned Books has over 55,000 books covering a wide range from casual fiction to great philosophers. At Nan's, we pride ourselves in finding the perfect book for every customer.
Hi I'm Kristi, Nan's daughter. I have been working at the store for 13 years now, and my job is to do whatever my mother tells me to do. I mostly enjoy reading mysteries, but enjoy other books as well. I look forward to helping you!
