Reid Moon: Moon's Rare Books

Reid Moon, graduated from BYU in Provo Utah and after 25 years of running his Moon’s Rare Books store in Dallas Texas, he decided to move the bookshop to Provo 4 years ago. He has created his Bookstore in The Shops at Riverwoods. It’s more of a Museum / Rare Book Shop that continues to benefit collectors from all over the world, many that he has conducted business with for years, and new ones that are just starting their journey in collecting.


What sets Reid Moon apart as a collector? His dream to have a little English Village of Shops built inside his shop, that allows you to walk the streets of England with him and view many of his treasures that are on display 6 days a week! He believes he is the caretaker of these items while they are in his possession and loves to share their history and stories with all that come to visit his bookstore. He takes great pride in having many rare books and other antiquities in his collection.


He specializes in four main categories: bibles, early Mormon books and documents, classics literature, and early American and European history, and has become the “go to expert” for help in these fields. He even has some “Movie Props” that please and excite everyone that views them. His collections are beyond most people’s imaginations and truly brings history to life, helping us understand the privileges we have because of those that came before us.


Reid does over 150 lectures a year sharing items from his prized collection, with questions such as, where have these items been for the last 150-200 years and how did I come to be able to show them to you now? His favorite evening is an opportunity to play “ Stump the Curator… where invited guests have the opportunity to enter into his private backroom, have a chance to mention their favorite person, place or thing in history within the last 500 years and Reid will be able to show something connected to it within 1 degree of separation. For school classes, to corporate meetings, and everyone walking through his doors, visiting his bookstore it is “event to remember”.


Reid said he bought his first used book for $2 and sold it for a bit higher to someone seeking an “out of print book.” From there, his collection has continued to grow. He has traveled more than 2 million miles around the world finding these treasured items and loves bringing them back to the bookstore for all to enjoy. He says he will never retire… why would you if you could travel the world, eat some of the finest foods served, and continue to do that which you love!!! His employees say it always feels like Christmas morning when he comes home after a trip and shares his latest acquisition.


Reid resides in Orem Utah with his wife Melanie and is the father of 8 children.
