What People Are Saying

"Always a 5 out of 5 experience there. First editions galore! Hands down the best book shop in middle Tennessee. We're lucky to have them in Downtown Franklin."

"Magic! From the location to the visual to the owners and Joel to the sweet story and their claim to fame!"

"This is the kind of place where you can spend hours searching for books you never knew you needed or wanted! Many first editions and rare books along with wonderful selections by southern authors."

"Explored this cozy meandering book store recently and found it hard to leave. Charming, inviting, warm and friendly are just a few words to describe the place. Put your phone away. Find any book. Read the paper. Sit in a comfortable chair. There's history here. Don't miss it."

"Great variety of new & carefully curated used books. Many of the used books are collectible first editions/signed. Specializing in southern lit/history or southern authors. Highly knowledgeable, literate staff. Nicely presented."

"It has so much heritage and history, and you can feel it in the floorboards and the atmosphere inside. I went in and I just loved the charm, history and smell of all of the old books."
