Welcome to I Know You Like A Book
I Know You Like A Book opened in May of 2006 to provide a unique experience for book lovers of all ages. Starting with a tiny 750 square foot shop in the quaint village of Peoria Heights, the store doubled its space in 2007 and added a wine bar to compliment its warm and relaxing atmosphere. The store carries new books, used books, greeting cards and gift items related to fine books and fine wines.
Local owner, Mary Beth Nebel, is a former corporate attorney who decided to follow her dream of owning a bookstore. Since the inception of the store, she’s been assisted by Cindy Baker, a writer and experienced bookseller. Together, they bring their enthusiasm and love of books to offer suggestions for a wide variety of genres. The staff is rounded out by Ringo Nebel, Mary Beth’s 17 year old dachshund. Ringo is the official store greeter who is often found sleeping on the job.
We strive for top notch service to our customers. Often, we are able to place special orders within two days and if your request for a new book is placed with our regular order and picked up at the store, there is no shipping charge. We do not buy used books from the public, nor do we allow buy/trades. Our used books are donated by our customers, or purchased from remainder companies and discounted to pass along the savings. We are certain that you’ll find our value, service and dedication makes this independent bookstore your destination point for good books, good wine and good conversation.
