Lynchburg’s new bookstore sells books by the pound

LYNCHBURG, Va. – A Lynchburg family is writing the next chapter of their book-selling business by transforming an old warehouse into a new store.

Neverland Books by the Pound is where you can buy books for $2.99 ​​a pound.

Co-owner Monica Coombes said they had about a million books and were buying them by truck across the United States. Warehouse bins are sorted by gender and replenished daily.

The Coombes family started selling books online years ago and wanted “a fun destination bookstore for the whole community”.

“We are a big family of readers and we couldn’t bear the fact that these [books] would have to go to the landfill to get back to the earth. Someone else should be able to like them too,” Coombes said.

In August, they offer a 25% discount for teachers and also give them special bookmarks to give away to their students so they can get a free book.
