“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies...
The man who never reads lives only one.”
— George R.R. Martin

We offer many services and advice (maybe too much!) from our knowledgeable staff, but our best service is providing an unforgettable book lover's experience where customers are invited to browse for that serendipitous find, curl up in one of our cozy chairs beside two fireplaces, have a cup of coffee or tea from our wifi-café, and meet other book lovers.

What We Buy

We maintain the high quality of our stock through selective buying. We are always interested in buying individual books and large collections. Books must be in excellent condition, and we do not purchase textbooks, magazines, encyclopedias, or romance novels. For significant numbers, we are happy to travel beyond the immediate Savannah area to look at collections. For smaller quantities, we ask that you call ahead for an appointment and bring them to us at the shop. We offer prices according to your book’s condition, edition, and resale value. You may choose cash or store credit as payment.

No, you probably won't get rich selling us your books, but you will get some nice pocket change, a fair price for your used books, and the assurance that you will be passing your books on to very appreciative readers!
