Some of Our Beautiful Special Gift Selections
The Number One Book Store in Orange, Va.
"So many books, so little time” is a classic, and Books Bound2please hopes to be as well. Bound2please (B2plz) is an independent bookstore in Orange, Virginia. We specialize in quality books. Gently used books fill most of the shelves at B2plz. We stock books in very good condition or better, and many of them are priced to go, go, GO! Our inventory includes brand-new books as well—but gently used books have an allure (and cost savings) that’s hard to resist.
Along with mysteries, memoirs, local authors, etc., we’ve concocted other genres from our large inventory of fiction and nonfiction titles. Come browse our Beautiful Minds section of science and philosophy or Riot Grrrls (women’s studies), English Mysteries, Back to the Land, and our Curiosities collection. The shop has books signed by authors, books in slipcases, books with decorative bindings and of course First Edition collectibles all unique and available for best friends or special occasions. Gift certificates, puzzles and small hostess gifts can be purchased in the shop as well.
Books B2plz is located across the street from the Post Office and next door to the Orange Pharmacy. Down the street Lacysflorists.com, the restaurant Forked on Main and the treasure trove Finders Keepers all make great neighbors. Around the corner on Caroline Street is the James Madison Museum and just a few moments drive from town on route 20 is Montpelier, the historical home of President James Madison. We have book clubs - Science Fiction and also Food Writers and Cooking fans. Really special events consist of authors reading aloud from their books and our Open Mic night where enthusiasts of the spoken word come together.

Booksbound2plz will happily special order titles for you or your book club. If you are looking to fill a hole in your book collection I'll do my best to acquire it in Very Good condition. We are a full-service bookshop and thereby make house calls! Would you like to have your library collection inventoried to better estimate its value OR maybe you have a substantial number of books to dispense with, call the shop (540) 672-4000.
Very Good Condition
Kathy Judge- Proprietor
Growing up, I often had my nose in a book, and Harriet the Spy was the only reason I might try a tomato sandwich. My love of reading followed me into the NYC publishing world, where I rode elevators with the 1970s celebrity bandit Patty Hearst while employed at Hearst Publishing. I’ve since worked for booksellers and libraries.
Several years ago I started a small book business called Library Logic. This took me into people’s homes cataloging their libraries and personal correspondence (a service that B2plz will continue to offer). Reading a book has always been a great escape for me, a soothing balm on “the worries.”
