Better Read Than Dead began as a few friends selling used books on the streets of Brooklyn in 2012 before opening their first store inside a converted shipping container at 867 Broadway in March 2014. In the following years we have opened a second storefront inside Burly Coffee (90 Kosciuszko Street) and moved our main operations into a nearby subterranean office/warehouse space where we are continually processing and cataloging new arrivals. We welcome appointments and travel widely for new acquisitions – if you would like to buy from or sell to us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are constantly maintaining thousands of books that are either not listed online or available in our storefronts, so please also get in touch with specific requests or queries.
