I haven't shopped here in a while but my son still does frequently. Quaint shop with a good selection of U.P. related books. Marquette's only used bookstore, on Third Street, right up the hill from Washington Street downtown. Spend twenty minutes and take a look.

When we go on vacation we always check out the local library for a quiet spot to read and local bookstores for a quiet spot to buy books! Snowbound has a wonderful selection of new and used books. I really appreciate the time spent shelving...More

The city of Marquette is small and uneventful (our guide said that one could spend two days there but doing what is not clear). But this bookstore is great. A good selection of books and helpful and friendly staff. All the time we spent in...More

I make a point to drive here whenever I'm in a 50 mile radius. They have a great selection, used next to new, and if you are interested in Upper Peninsula topics, they have a bookcase for you. Great booksellers.

We come to Marquette annually to visit and a must see attraction is Snowbound books. It is independently owned and has great taste in books. We have children ages 4 and 6 and they love going there. It is very kid friendly. It has a...More
