This place is like a social hub. The books are all good but the people in it make this place special. I really want to be a part of this place.
They All Carry Guns! – The Book Nook is a bastion of right-wing patriots. Shop with a feeling of safety, as most of the time, over half of the employees are packin' heat. Some nights...all of them. Approved by the owner, too! Sold him a little Smith & Wesson Airweight years ago.
Even the part-time weekend employee, who happens to be a beautiful blonde college professor, has a Glock!
What's not to love!
My favorite used book store. – This is the first stop I make when I'm looking for a book. The selection is just overwhelming. From comics to DVDs to music CDs to unusual books such as "Celluloid Treasures of the Victorian Era," this store has it all. They're fairly well organized, or at least most are. Book sections are categorized and so is the non-fiction. Fiction is by category (Drama, Western, etc.) then by author. The haphazardness comes in non-fiction. While they are also categorized (History, Nature, Pets, etc.) it ends there. There doesn't appear to be any further organization and even they have trouble telling you where to find a book. You just have to go through the stacks. All in all though, it's really worth it. The prices are winners for sure and the employees are as helpful as they can be.
A musty shop where book lovers get their story fix amid stacks of used treasures. – The Scene
Bibliophiles know frequent trips to the "New Release" table can empty bank accounts quickly. That's why they love this cluttered warehouse of used books located in a grimy shopping center near DeKalb Peachtree Airport. The shelves are disorganized, but burst with multiple, musty copies of just about any type of book you can imagine. Its staff of scruffy college students will happily let you lose yourself in the yellowed pages of a $2 thriller. If you're in need of a good literary treasure hunt, this is your place.
Come just for the sight of the stacks and shelves of used paperback and hardback books in nearly every genre. Special treasures may be harder to find--this store focuses on quantity over quality. But if you weave your way out of the labyrinth of books, you'll find a great collection of comics, 'zines, movies and records.
Get It Here – If you're looking for a book or CD or video, it's worth a trip to the Book Nook. Save a lot of money by getting used merchandise that is still in good shape. I've found the same CD that sells for $14 at new stores for $7.99 or less at the BookNook.
