About Becker's Books

Tucked away in a sleepy neighborhood just outside the Loop on the West side of Houston, Becker's Books is one of Houston's largest bookstores by inventory, although you wouldn't know it when you pull up. After walking around however, you'll find what you didn't even know you were looking for. May customers leave hours later, smiling in spite of themselves with an armful of books, giving credence to what any J.R.R. Tolkien fans know to be true "not all who wander are lost."
