Really friendly and cozy. All sorts of books scattered throughout a cute and well-organized store. Some used, some new, all great fun to look through.

Upon reading the other reviews I must say I did not receive the same experience as far as friendly goes. But the shop itself is a little step back in time with delicious book smells and a wonderful feeling of quaintness until the worker rudely awakened me out of my bliss of the book store. I asked her a simple... More

One of my favorite stops in Olde Town, Clinton, Mississippi. It looks (and smells) exactly like a great old bookstore should! The staff are knowledgeable and always friendly. They'll even offer you a cup of hot tea while you browse. Be sure to ask to see their "Signed, First Edition Section". You'll be surprised at the treasures you'll find.

Of course I had to buy some while I was there! This is a great used bookstore with character in Olde Town Clinton. I believe... More

Very nice book store located in Historic Clinton. Very inviting for browsing with a nice selection of publications. Loved the smattering of antiques throughout the store.

A real jewel in downtown Clinton. Has a good selection of both used and new books. Well organized and very attractive. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Right across the street from Wyatt Waters studio and down the street from Mississippi College.
