Hey, just wondering what everyone's favorite book stores are. I usually buy online or just go to the nearby Barnes & Noble. They usually have the largest selection for books that I'm interested in.

I go online a LOT: eBay, ABEbooks, and Amazon. And sometimes others.

There's a great little used bookstore in Virginia-Highlands, but I can't remember the name. It's crowded with books stacked every which way. Fun!

I'm a librarian, so I try to do the "free book" thing. However, there are just sometimes I cannot WAIT for a title and cave and buy it. I favor the Borders in Buckhead. For great children's books, there was a wonderful bookstore in Roswell called "Hobbit Hall." They have changed ownership a few times recently, so I'm not sure if it still has the same name. But it was a wonderful place.

I buy a lot of used books and luckily there is a store right next to my office in Decatur, it's called Books Again. Otherwise I go online.

Independent bookstores in Georgia, at least 9 of which are in Atlanta:

It's been years since I lived in Atlanta. Is Oxford Books still open on Peachtree? And what about it's sister store, Oxford, Too? I used to go to both several times a week. Oxford, Too was primarily a used book store. I don't check LT too often so if anyone knows whether these great stores are still around feel free to drop me a note to

Unfortunately the Oxfords are all closed except the small comic store that used to be below Too (it moved over to Piedmont just south of Pharr). I really miss Oxford :(

A Capella moved over to Moreland Ave (by Savage pizza) but remains a great little store 4 stars. The store on Highland mentioned above (Atlanta Book Exchange) has also moved; it's now across the street from Manuel's Tavern and has at least twice the space so books are no longer all over the floors 3 1/2 stars. A relative newcomer, Eagle Eye, at N. Decatur and Clairmont is worth a visit but the small antiquarian shop in the back called Hole in the Wall is excellent 5 stars.

Atlanta Book Exchange 5 stars is still across from PDK airport and Book Nook 3 stars moved to North Druid Hills Rd.

For new books, check out the new Wordsmiths in Decatur on Trinity (across the street from Twains).

I wanted to share the cutest little independent bookstore in downtown Woodstock--the Foxtale Book Shoppe. The web address is Enjoy!

I like the Book Nooks in Decatur (North Druid Hills at Clairmont) and in Marietta (Roswell Road a mile east of the Big Chicken). I still buy a lot of my books online, locating them via

Unless I am shopping for a book by a favorite author or killing time, I just hit GoodWills on a weekend morning with my son. Gets me a weird but wide selection of books at incredible prices while letting my husband sleep-in.

Also it allows me to buy inexpensive crafting supplies (often unused or upcycled from something odd) frames, shelves & toys while ensuring that my family's materialism is supporting the reuse of existing goods rather than unnecessarily increasing demands for production.

Eagle Eye (N Decatur @ Clairmont), A Capella (Moreland Ave in Little 5), and Tall Tales (Toco Hills) have always been fantastic. Also, Books Again (Decatur), Little Shop of Stories (also Decatur), Bound to be Read (Flat Shoals in E Atlanta), and Atlanta Vintage Books (Clairmont Rd in Chamblee). Unfortunately, they're all too far from Buckhead. I guess iPods & Kindles have taken over that market. Is Atlanta Book Exchange still on N Highland? I'd appreciate any updates y'all care to give. Thanks!

Atlanta Book Exchange is on N. Highland, across the street from Manuel's Tavern. I was there a few months ago, and impressed by the space and how packed it was with books.

Nice new/used bookstore in East Atlanta Village -- Bound to Be Read Books. Super nice owners. They can get you nearly any book you want in under three days! Support your local book store!!!

They have readings, book groups, a writers group, etc. AND, they are open late - till 11 on weekends.

gen. 10, 2011, 4:57pm

Eagle Eye at Clairmont and N.Decatur is a good one.

It's not really a book store but I can still get A LOT of books. I go to Georgia State University which allows me to borrow any book from any state-run college in the state. I almost feel overwhelmed with all the books I want to read before I graduate.

I go to used bookstores around the ATL area almost every weekend. If there is a book I especially want and cannot find it I will use (where used bookstores all over the country sell books). That way I am still supporting used bookstores and not corporate monster bookstores.
