Posted online

Pagination Bookshop LLC
After several months of renovations to a century-old house, Pagination Bookshop LLC opened for business April 29. The 1,400-square-foot bookstore operates in a 3,400-square-foot, two-story structure at 1150 E. Walnut St., with the second floor set up as an Airbnb short-term rental. Co-owners Jennifer Murvin and fiance Kory Cooper acquired the property in August 2018 for an undisclosed amount and remodeled the 1905-built house for roughly $10,000, according to a city building permit. Murvin, an English professor at Missouri State University, said she and Cooper love reading and wanted a bookstore for their first business venture. Pagination Bookshop sells new and used books, along with stationary, mugs, pins, tarot cards and tote bags. Startup costs landed at $70,000, she said, and the couple worked with Rose Construction, Stinson Building Co. and BatesForum.
