The book nook sells used books, cds, movies, comics, etc. This is one of those bookstores that is packed from floor to ceiling, relatively well-organized. Prices are reasonable. My two complaints are 1) they often mark books with a bright stamp that says "book nook" and makes the book obviously used. This makes it hard to shop for books as gifts, where other used bookstores have books that can pass for new. 2) their policies for selling books and using credit are unclear. Sometimes they let you use credit, other times they don't, other times only up to a certain amount. This needs to be put in writing. But for a part of town that doesn't have a lot of used bookstores, Book nook is pretty great.

It's a given that Atlanta has a terrible selection of bookstores, especially stores for used books. Book Nook is an Atlanta institution, and they have a large selection, lots of trade paperbacks and kids books, as well as comics, cds, and dvds. But their buying policies are really strange--how much you get depends on who happens to be there and the mood they are in, and trading in credit is also tricky--it seems you can't use credit to pay for a whole purchase, just a certain percent of a purchase, and that percent also seems to change with the staff. So if you need a mass-market paperback, it's a great place to shop, but not so good to sell your books there.
I went in the other day to pick up a book for class. The place is unorganized-books line the floors, the books are simply shoved onto shelves where they fit, not in any sort of order. When I asked for help, the workers walked me over to the section and had me fend for myself. It took me five minutes to find the book....it sells books for 60% of original value. If you need it quick and cheaper than amazon, it's an option, if not go somewhere else.
Book nook has a large selection of books, cds, movies, comics, and other printed matter. If you are looking for a book other than mass market, you might not find it, but you will probably find something you weren't looking for anyway. They buy used books and cds too, and they offer trade value that is pretty reasonable.
Little Shop of Stories is a fantastic children's book store in Decatur. The staff is knowledgeable, extremely helpful and friendly. We love going in here and picking out favorites and discovering new books. A wonderful place to buy birthday gifts - plus they wrap! It is a great local business.
This is a cute little book store located in downtown Decatur right on the square. My son loves the train table and the story time. There's story time a few times a week and it's free! It can also be rented out for birthday parties! Cute place to take your kids.
Every community should have a bookstore like this, so children can still understand the fun of selecting and buying a book of their very own. They are a highly responsible business giving back to the community in many ways. A must-do for kids.
Book Nook is great! I could spend all day in there! They have a selection of about 2500 records mostly classic rock which is what I like! They also have a nice jazz selection. Their prices are very reasonable.
Wide selection of used books and decent selection of new best sellers. Counter can order any book for you. Highlights are the $1 bargains out front and Gretl the sweet canine mascot. Nice cards too !
BEST kids book store ever. The staff are amazing - they can pick out an excellent selection of recommendations for the kid based on what they are reading and what they say they like.
