Some of Nashville's Great Bookstores
I’ve been going to two of Nashville’s bookstores a lot lately. I didn’t even know they were there until the last month. I was so happy to find both of them.
The First Great Bookstore
This one is called Rhino Books. It has two locations. One is at 4918 Charlotte Pike and the other is on Granny White Pike. These stores have an old-fashioned feel, with lots of attention if you want it, and not as much if you don’t. The people who run them are all super-friendly and interesting. They will help you find whatever you are looking for.
In other words, if they have it, they will find it for you. You can find antique hardcovers, plus new looking paperbacks there too. It’s just fun browsing there, plus you can bring books to sell there, too if you want to. This store has been open a long time. Their website is here:
The Second Great Bookstore
This store is more like a chain – because it really is. It is McKay’s Used Books. They don’t only sell books here - - they sell CD’s, books on tape, and videos, too. In fact, they have HUGE aisles full of everything. It’s hard to see it all in one visit. You can sell your books here, too, but don’t expect to get a lot for them.
But if you have books you don’t want to sell online, here’s a good backup place to bring them. Especially if they aren’t your favorites. I do love this store because you can find books here for GREAT prices. I can’t wait to go back, and I’ve already been there twice. They are located on 5708 Charlotte Pike. Here is their website:
