Books of Interest is a used book store specializing in used, rare, out of print and overstock books.

• Eastern Religion
• Western Religion
• Nature and Science, including a large selection of field guides
• American, Ancient and World History
Poet and fiction writer Leo Romero and journalist Elizabeth Cook-Romero have operated a bookstore at this location since 2009. We have been Santa Fe book dealers since 1988. (Previous bookstores include: Leo’s Books, Leo’s Art Books, and Books and More Books.)
Books of Interest is housed in a 1920s-era bungalow walking distance from the downtown plaza and the Santa Fe Railyard. Ours is an old-fashioned bookstore, staffed by readers and writers. We welcome browsers. Additional photos of our bookstore can be viewed at http://www.flickr.com/photos/booksofinterestsfcomphotos/
Although our prices are competitive, we do not list our books for sale on any internet site. Because our inventory is not available online, there are many treasures awaiting those who love browsing in a real bookstore.
We also have a small stock used CDs, DVDs and vinyl records.
This March we bought a fine library that is strong in literature, poetry, photography and Southwest & Santa Fe history. It contains many vintage and rare hardbacks.
We continue to shelve items from a huge art library we purchased months ago. In March we shelved hundreds of hard-to-find contemporary art catalogues. This has caused our art collection to expand into the hall between the art and fiction rooms. It has also allowed us to develop a section devoted to sculpture. Additional art catalogues and books now fill a closet in the back room.
We have recently replenished a shelf of rare and collectable books from Leo Romero's library, including some vintage and signed volumes and a few with origional prints.
Other new arrivals include unusual items on automobile history and graphic design.
We add new titles in every catagory to our bookstore every week.
