Here at Lazarus & Nobleman Bookseller, we are committed to the fight of helping people live better lives and a chance to change economic, social and political freedoms through literacy. Read more about our drive towards: social, environmental and economic impact on literacy. Please visit our literacy partners site to read more.  

http://www.literacypartners.org/ We teach thousands of the 3.7 million adults who are functionally illiterate in New York to learn to read. We help to ameliorate key social problems including, poverty, crime, poor parenting, welfare dependency, health and financial illiteracy. Through participation in our programs, adults become capable, committed, and able to enter the mainstream of society. Committed students see tangible differences in the quality of their life and the lives of their children.

Bookseller / Mail-Order Company

We're booksellers “by postal service ” — which is a raw way to say we are a mail-order company.

Lazarus & Nobleman Bookseller produces a catalog of new and used books, gift items and home/office decor, etc. We started our company in 2005 and mailed 100,000 copies of our first edition. Now, we mail a million plus copies three times per year to avid readers all over the country. We read the books and write the reviews right here — we’re a retailer, not a publisher.

Our selections are eclectic — and rarely do any of them appear on bestseller lists.

Our fiction recommendations — some of them classics you may have missed — are not to be found in racks at the supermarket or airport shop.

Our travel books offer more than lists of hotels and restaurants; they’re the stories of gifted writers.

Our books for children celebrate imagination and humor rather than cautionary tales.

We sort through thousands of new offerings from publishers to find those books that offer some combination of cleverness, wisdom, imagination, and joy.

Our promise is satisfaction.

If all of this sounds interesting to you, be sure to request our catalog. And don't forget to view our Academic Best Sellers we have on this site. We think you’ll like what you see!
