Reviews for Kaboom Books


Often declared the best of its kind in Houston, this bookstore is built on an "appreciation of complexity" and features titles in political science, fiction, literature, and translation.

Citysearch Editorial Review – John and Dee Dillman's indie bookstore stock spills over into a smaller, more centralized location (though still in their hometown Heights) that fully preserves the Kaboom standard of bookworm quality. Hunt down vintage paperbacks or out-of-print titles in minutes among well-organized hand-made shelves in genres comprising fiction, cultural histories, social and hard sciences, art, music, sci-fi and more. Trade in your old books for a fair price that you may well spend before leaving if you heed the staff's sound recommendations for replacements.

Rare books, exceptional service in the Heights – I never know what I'll discover at Kaboom but I always find rare, quality books here! The owners operated a thriving bookstore in the French Quarter, New Orleans and relocated to the Heights. They're in the same building as Oolala gifts and I always discover a treasure of a book here at such a reasonable price. She calls me when books of my favorite genre come in and I'm so happy to have them in our neighborhood!
