Very happy that there's a privately-owned small business used book store like this in my neighborhood. The selection is wonderful, and the small store is actually a plus --less time walking, more time checking out all the books! Everything is neatly organized, even with books basically from floor-to-ceiling (seriously, it's so awesome, and I easily could have spent another hour browsing). There is an ample selection of fiction, history, a neat little philosophy section (always my personal favorite). There is also a well-stocked children's section with a cute play-area for the kids (as well as a cozy lounge/reading area for the adults), and a very impressive selection of literature/classics in its own featured corner of the store. There are lots of gems to be discovered --I found a few myself-- and contrary to the clever name, the owner was a pleasure to chat with! I'll definitely be back, and if you're in Murfreesboro, so should you!
The previous reviewer is obviously great at articulating their disapproval. I went into this store on a whim, and was pleasantly surprised. The GBP has a great selection at more than reasonable prices. My only complaint is that the owner wasn't grumpy at all, but actually quite helpful! Ha.
The Grumpy Book Peddler sucks.
