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.
Libro.fm is my “go-to” for audio books because they allow you to select an independent bookstore who benefits from your purchase. You can change it up every month or you can keep the same bookstore as your home base. Another feature Libro.fm offers to customers is the ability to return books if you’ve listened for a little while and decided you made a poor choice. I love Libro.fm!
