Welcome to Gene's Books


Selling great books to read, collect, enjoy!

Hello! Welcome to my internet book store. I am Gene Medenwald, the owner, and I thank you for your interest! Please search or browse my inventory of out of print, hard to find, scarce (and a few quite rare) Books. If you can't find what you desire you may fill out the off-line search form and I will check our off-line inventory, other bookstores and book search services for you -- or please contact me via telephone, eMail or letter.

Please do not hesitate to ask about anything that you may be unsure of.  Sometimes book terminology or internet purchasing protocol can be somewhat daunting.  Call me at 1-620-910-7691, leaving a message on the answering machine if I'm not available.  I'll return your call promptly.

Current clients include private collectors, scholars, home schoolers, librarians, curators at museums and other institutions -- and Readers!
If you are looking for a specific subject, title, or to expand your library, please ask for a personalized offer or suggestions. 
Want Lists are invited.

As an Internet-only bookstore, it is open for business 24/7. If I am not present telephone calls are picked up by the answering machine. Messages & eMails are returned promptly. Orders are shipped same or next day.

If you wish to Browse By Category, you will find signed and collectible first edition copies in most categories as well as modestly priced reading/study copies.

Our largest and most popular categories are: 

In Fiction -- Romance (Contemporary, Historical, Suspense, as well as the other subcategories), Mystery & Detective, Literary (classical) and Historical.

In Nonfiction -- History, Biography/Autobiography, Religion, Poetry, War & Military.

. . . and we continue to expand our selection of Americana and early Kansas history.

We attend estate sales, auctions, etc., regularly and occasionally acquire a private collection, so our inventory changes almost daily and continues to increase in size at a modest rate -- you may profit by visiting our website store regularly.

We have a number of clients for whom we keep a want list on file, and are routinely fortunate to assist in the acquisition of a new title or to upgrade the condition on existing works in the collection.

More Pictures are available!
If you would like to see a digital photo of the significant features of a particular book we have in stock, send us an eMail with your request and we'll be happy to comply via return eMail within a day or two.

Thank you!
