All of the stores are great places to spend an afternoon, but visiting the Main Book Barn is an event. Like every used book shop, the main barn and its several outbuildings (including an, er, outhouse) are chock full of books of every description. Looking for nonfiction of all types, paranormal, romance, mystery, cook books, biographies, children's, young adult? Art books? Hardcover? Paperback? Graphic novels?
But as soon as you step on the property, you'll soon see why the Book Barn is different.
The Midtown Store carries children's, crafts, romance, and westerns. It's my favorite due to its huge collection of mystery paperbacks, including classic mystery paperbacks for one dollar.
Store Four and Three Quarters specializes in law, linguistics, foreign languages, farming, geography, cartography, travel, Easton Press, leather bound books and so much more.
The Downtown location has everything from Astronomy through Wiccan Studies and everything in between - film, dance, theater, cars and motorcycles, humor, and a huge science fiction and fantasy collection, plus thousands of DVDs.What's your favorite used book shop?
