About Us

A Family Business in North Carolina

Cat's Cradle Books is an on-line bookstore located in High Point, North Carolina, nestled in the rolling Piedmont countryside. In our family, small business ownership has been a tradition for three generations. Cat's Cradle Books continues this tradition as a family bookseller enterprise. We've been in business as an on-line bookstore since 1999. We look forward to many more years of serving the global internet community.

Personal Service and Commitment to Quality

We understand the concerns many people have about e-commerce. Instead of face-to-face contact, there's only a screen and a mouse.

At Cat's Cradle Books, you'll receive a quick, personal response, whether you're buying a book or simply making an inquiry about a used, rare or out of print book for sale. We carefully inspect each book before listing it on-line, and we are forthright about the condition of our books. We firmly believe that customer satisfaction is the most important part of every book sale.

In keeping with this philosophy, we abide by the ethical standards of the Independent Online Booksellers Association, whose members subscribe to a code of bookseller ethics based on honesty, integrity, and service.

And Then There Are the Bookstore Cats...

We often receive questions about how our bookshop got its name. A nod to Kurt Vonnegut? Harry Chapin? In truth, it's because our online book store is occupied by a family of cats who love to take all-day naps, wherever the spirit moves them. "Cat's Cradle" fits our bookstore—literally!
