The West Virginia Book Company is owned and operated by long-time Charleston resident Bill Clements, who has over 35 years experience selling books in West Virginia. Our company’s wide range of offerings – books on folklore, nature, tourism, ghost stories, history, the Civil War, children’s books and more – allows us to be your “one-stop shop” for state and local interest books.

The West Virginia Book Company offers fast friendly service, every time. We ship most orders the same or next day. Our customers count on us for reliable, experienced advice and guidance when it comes to ordering. To keep you abreast of new titles as they become available, we offer regular updates via e-mail.

For bookstores and retail venues, let us help you set your business apart from the chains by carrying a large variety of local interest books. We pride ourselves on our unique local products, on developing relationships, and being especially attentive to our customers. We also frequently arrange to have authors at our customers’ signings and special events.

For libraries and schools we are an approved vendor with the state, accept purchase orders, and help line up educational programs and events.
