This place had achieved urban myth status for me. I had heard it existed but no one could give me an address. “Hole in the wall.” “Hidden green door.” “Quaint.” “Fantastic used book store.” “Great prices.”
When my work recently moved downtown, a Moroccan Coffee place within walking distance was recommended to me. Curious, I went in search of tea and coffee.
And stumbled upon the green door. Actually, I seriously did stumble into a planter while trying to get the photo that included the corner sign, banging into the concrete planter along the street and scraping my leg in the process. I bleed for art.
The Back Door Book Shop has expanded recently. There are many rooms of used books and it’s cash only. The hours are from 11-3, Monday through Friday. And, my dear reader, I’m going to give you what no one else had given me, an address: 901 Throckmorton Street, Fort Worth, Texas. Phone number is 817.336.1021 It’s like having the latitude and longitude of the Holy Grail’s storage room.
