Visit us and we'll show you why Second Edition Books is Montana's best used book store!
second edition books is a family owned business since 1985
Second Edition Books was created in 1985 when Kathleen Finch bought an existing, small, used bookstore. She immediately moved the store to a larger space on Broadway St. in uptown Butte and began expanding. In 1997, she and Tom bought an old hardware store on Montana street and moved every single book 3 blocks south. Ann Finch-Johnston has been the owner of Second Edition Books since Jan 2012 when she took the store over from her parents, Tom and Kathleen Finch. She inherited a well run business and continues the focus on carrying a great selection. Mother and daughter continue to work side by side in this family owned Montana business. While Ann has taken over the daily operations, Kathleen is still the primary book buyer and resident expert in many areas. Both are eager to share their love of books with everyone.
