Judd, Betty, & Mary-Lou

Our Story

Slidell natives Judd and Betty Kintner decided to open The Book Sack in 1992 as a way to deliver great books at discount pricing to the Slidell area. As one of the few remaining brick-and-mortar book stores left, The Book Sack offers a book browsing experience that is often lost in today's fast paced internet world. Children especially can benefit from holding something in their hands, instead of always staring at a screen. Do yourself a favor and come check out our diverse selection of pre-read and new paperbacks, hardbacks, rare books, computer & technical manuals, and even 1st editions!
