Welcome to the Island Bookstore,
a full service bookstore featuring all things Mackinac!

Can't find what you want through this site?
Buy most books in print through our second site at Bookshop.


Although we specialize in Mackinac Island and Northern Michigan items, we are a full service book store. If you don't find the book on our site, please order through our link to Bookshop where a vast collection of books can be shipped directly from our distributor!


Our store is open from May through October, and you can visit us online all year long. We'll keep you in touch with new Mackinac and Michigan releases that your local shop might not get as excited about as we do.

If you can't find what you are looking for, email us, and we probably have it, or can get it for you.

The Island Bookstore began as a small antiquarian store with a small retail space above Doud's market over 40 years ago. Today we are located in the Main Street Centre next to the Lilac Tree Inn on Mackinac Island.

We do not ship internationally.
