Bookstores with a Men’s Section

Menstuff® lists over 150 bookstores that have a separate men’s section.

Purchase/order books only from bookstores who have shown their support for men by setting up a separate men’s issue section. If they don’t have a men’s section, encourage them to start one, especially if they already have a women’s studies or gay/lesbian studies section. See How to get your bookstore to set-up a men’s section or library that includes a rationale that shows why all bookstores should have a separate men’s section, and how to go about starting one. There’s also a Short List of book recommendations to get them started. Also, see Books issue or actual book reviews in 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 and 2003 to get ideas of available books.

We want to support local book stores to help end men’s isolation. However, if they don’t want to “bother” with a men’s section, buy your books through us. They are usually cheaper and a portion of sales comes back to us to help our work to end men’s isolation. At the bottom on many pages and on our side bar is a search engine for Amazon.com for in-print books. If the book is out-of-print or you’re looking for a used copy, we recommend that you go to our side bar and click on Alibris. You may lose the thread that you’ve taken to get there, but they are usually a better and more immediate source for used and out-of-print books.

Let us know if any of this information is incorrect or if your bookstore isn’t on this list.

Note: In the parenthesis is the most recent visit date followed by the number of separate titles in their men’s section.
