Celebrating 25 years

25th Anniversary




First and foremost, A BIG World of Thanks for allowing us to serve you over the last 25 years!

It is with great pride that the crew at Pyramid Books announces that we have survived with soul, twenty -five years in this “rockin and rollin” book business.  We have totally enjoyed working with our customers and friends, both near and far.  Our encounters have included authors, business people, entertainers, foreign dignitaries, and just plain Tyrone and LaNika.  We have served the unborn baby nestled in her Mom’s womb to Granny, in the nursing home.  Everyone, we have met has given us a piece of their spirit and we have given all a piece of ours.  But, as with everything, there is a beginning and an end.  The Pyramid Books brick and mortar store that we all know and have mixed feelings for is closing at the end of this month,and of course as one door closes another one opens. We look to resurrect another larger

physical location somewhere in the near future.

Pyramid Books on-line endeavor is still in operations as always we can ship any book or books that you wish to purchase and have it delivered to you in a timely manner.  Therefore, the only difference between our on-line store and a brick and mortar store is the physical location.  Please check our website for more updates. We can also be contacted on Facebook, instant gram, twitter, etc. or just give us a call at 561-731-4422, and bear in mind communication is the passport to greatness in all endeavors. 

Family, remember, a family is not only a family because of blood; we are a family because we share.  We share a love of reading, a love of learning, a love of adventure, a love of our “Blackness”, a love for our African homeland, and a love for all our brothers and sisters, no matter what branch of our great diaspora they may belong too.  Please do not grieve for us, for nothing has died.  We are expanding into a new realm of consciousness, where new opportunities await us.  We are proud of our past accomplishments, but we know that bigger and better things await us.
