M. Judson Booksellers on Main Street in downtown Greenville, SC is best appreciated in person, but the website makes it super-easy to order online. Their book subscription service is a fantastic feature I am eager to try! The Chocolate Moose Bakery is in the same building, which is pretty close to perfection if you ask me.
The Coffee Shelf , 130 Amicks Ferry Rd in Chapin, SC is NOT just a coffee shop. They have a fantastic selection of current and classic books to purchase. And if you can’t find what you want, they will order it for you. They are my “go-to” for book or coffee gifts. Please do yourself a favor and visit them. If you prefer to call, the number is 803-932-2660.
Litchfield Books is strategically located south of Myrtle Beach and north of Charleston, and it’s the ONE place I have to visit when we are anywhere closeby. They have been in this area for as long as I can remember and they know how to recommend books for everyone in the family. Through the years they have hosted NY Times best-selling authors Pat Conroy, Dot Frank, Harlen Coban, Nicholas Sparks and many others. They offer regular “Moveable Feasts” where you meet an author and enjoy lunch at a local restaurant.
Ed’s Editions is my favorite used bookstore and I am amazed how organized it is! I love the “close-to-downtown” Columbia, SC location, because it’s easy to get to and only a short walk to great antique shops and restaurants. If I am EVER looking for an older book, I call here first.
