Boomers of course.


An added bonus to Boomers is that the store was recently purchased by a local writer, Jonathan Sanchez, and his wife. So you get to support local arts as well as a local business.

The sad thing is there are very few left. The good thing is there are still a few left.

Here's a local list to consider:
Litchfield Books, Pawley's Island
Indigo Books, John's Island
Edisto Bookstore, Edisto Island


What's the name of that fantastic bookstore in Summerville? Side street downtown. Great atmosphere. I think there's even a cat.


There's a new place on Folly Road--Ravenous Reader. I have yet to stop in, but I've heard it's a cool place and she's thinking about making it into a coffee shop as well!


I like The Scoop in North Charleston down from the Ice Palace, basically in front of the La-Z-Boy store. It's not old, but they've got good variety of used books, a kids nook, and coffee/ice cream/wi-fi. I like the kooky people who work there, too.


Boomers, yes, soon to be renamed.

In Summerville there's All Books, owned by Michelle List and located in a charming little house.


Boomers will definitely be on the list, and All Books, which I haven't seen since its move. Ravenous Reader I've heard about but haven't seen, and The Scoop is new to me, but I'll check it out. Same with Indigo and Edisto -- I'll just have to find them.

Whatever happened to Atlantic Books? And is there no independent bookseller left east of the Cooper?


The Scoop is great! I really like spending time there. In addition to the large selection of used books there is coffee and treats. The people are really nice and the atmosphere is very inviting.


Indigo books in Freshfields village. Friendly, helpful, great book selection!
