Jackson Street Booksellers is a mecca for used, rare and out-of-print books. In fact, you can get lost for hours meandering through the tall shelves and still not see it all! They continuously stock the shelves with new books, so each time you visit, you are likely to stumble upon something you haven’t seen before. While perusing their selection, you’ll find books around every corner, even sometimes on the floor, but that’s what makes this store so magical. If you are looking for something specific, the knowledgeable staff can point you in the right direction.

If it’s a story you’re after, look no further than this independent, family-owned shop. The Bookworm is a small Omaha gem beloved by readers for its character and small business feel. The shelves are filled with newly published page-turners, classic novels, colorful kids books and more. Grab one of your choosing off the shelves and enjoy the first few pages in the cozy reading area.


Our Bookstore

Our Bookstore, located in the heart of downtown, is as charming as it sounds. From the gorgeous brick exterior to the cozy lighting and carefully curated shelves, every inch of this place feels like a secret you were lucky to discover. The selection is a bit smaller at this location, but that is only because the literature enthusiasts who run the store spend lots of time hand-picking the very best books. You can peruse through the employee-recommendation tables to find the most recent picks, but the staff is always pleased to recommend others or engage in a book-based conversation. Once you’ve made your selection, enjoy flipping through its pages at a nearby cafe.


Legend Comics & Coffee

What’s better than experiencing a new story in a cozy locale? Reading it with a soul-warming cup of coffee in hand. Legend Comics & Coffee offers a haven for people from all walks of life to come and stay awhile. It is the perfect place to catch up with friends, study, play games, read, and of course, grow your comic book collection! The staff treats everyone like family, and is happy to provide you with a book recommendation if needed.

As the sister store to Almost Music, Solid Jackson Books caters to all lovers of the arts with its shelves full of records (old and new) and books! Music lovers will swear that this is the best place to buy a record in town, so while you’re perusing the shelves for a new page-turner, make sure to flip through the tunes as well. The owner, Brad, will guide you through his favorites!

Krypton Comics attracts bibliophiles, comic fans and gamers from all over the region to peruse its incredible selections. And if for some reason, the shop doesn’t have what you’re looking for, the owner is pleased to order it for you. The sheer magnitude of colorful collectibles, old magazines and covetable comic books makes it nearly impossible to leave the shop empty-handed — and we’re okay with that.
