In this day of Amazon online book ordering and mega bookstore chains, what is the hope for a small personal, locally focused, caring bookstore that has books that you can't find elsewhere and actually Thumb Through Them to decide before purchasing? This is the place that Amazon can not touch.

This book store has been in Front Royal many years. It is small and jam packed inside. Half is dedicated to new books and half to used books. They are willing to order any book not in the store.

We stopped at Royal Oak Bookshop on our overnight stay in Front Royal. We arrived at 5:30 pm so did not have long to look. Lots and lots of used books in excellent condition. I could have spent hours browsing thru the multiple rooms of books. I picked up 3 books to take to the beach to read. Fun!

Big used bookstore, terrific selection in (as far as I could tell) all categories including sci-fi, and a friendly cat named Willa, just across the street from a great bistro and restaurant (Element, and Apartment 2G respectively).

The Royal Oak Bookshop is a wonderful store that sells used and new books. The shop went on forever, and all the books are nicely laid out and finding different subjects was a breeze. The price of the used books we thought were very reasonable. A must stop if you love books.
