Hi, I'm Bob

Hello! My name is Bob. I founded Beck's Book Store in 1955 with the philosophy of "great college bookstore service emerges when excellent relationships, timely provision of materials and fair prices harmonize."Today, the same philosophy applies at all of my stores and at becksbooks.com. I'm working hard by comparing online prices to offer you the best deals on textbooks. Click Here for more history.
