Reading Vintage lets you rekindle those fond memories of old books and antique treasures. It's our mission to hunt for exciting, quality, and unique pieces like vintage cookbooks, classic children's stories, and definitive historial books.
We source from local estate sales in the Great Lakes Bay Region, only purchasing the highest quality books. After photos are shot, the book is immediately placed in a clear self-sealed bag, stored in a climate-controlled room. When shipping, your book is double-bagged using kraft bubble mailers for protection.Learn About Us

We made it! Spring is here on the calendar, and is earlier than it's been in over a century!
The birds start migrating; trees will be budding, animals come out of hibernation—so much nature to experience and learn about.
Get out and enjoy nature!
Make sure you have a Audubon Nature Guide in your pocked to identify that bird, butterfly or plant you see on your walk.
Happy Reading!Shop Now!

Whether the books on your shelves are first editions or book club favorites to enjoy them for years, follow these tips.
Never store your books in direct sun to avoid sun-fade. Also, avoid heat and humidity.
Add your books to your dusting routine to avoid musty smells and mildew.
Consider wrapping older books in acid-free, UV-resistant plastic book cover to protect cover.
Store books away from heat sources like the furnace vents. High temperatures can crack leather spines and make book glue fragile.
Taking care of your valuable books will preserve their monetary and sentimental value, and guarantee that they will be enjoyable for years to come.

Reading enables you to experience many lives in diverse places without leaving your home.
One day you’re a Tsar in Russia, the piloting a rocket ship to Mars, planning your next African Safari.
Sometimes you explore places that only exist within the pages of the book you're reading.
We can all agree we are all settling in and adjusting to the new crazy norm, hopefully finding our joy where we can. Here a sneak peek of what's new at Reading Vintage and an overview of how we do things!
