PPB is THE Place for Valentines and Cozy Winter Reads

Prairie Path Books is tucked within Toms-Price Home Furnishings at 303 E. Front St. in downtown Wheaton. When you enter the front door just follow the signs to the back corner of Toms-Price where you will find our bookstore, comfortably furnished, with a friendly staff, and most importantly a hand picked selection of books (over 5000 titles).  You will see from our store logo that we are more than just a bookstore, we are Prairie Path Books, Gatherings & Great Reads. We love gatherings!  We host a variety of weekly events to inspire and enlighten, as well as book clubs and story times for kids.  And we are proud of our great selection of books!  If you are not sure what you are going to read next, come in and we will help you find the perfect read.
