My Sister's Books, which opened in 2002, is located in one of the country's oldest resort communities - Pawleys Island, SC. The store is the realization of a dream for sisters Fran Clarkson and Bess Long. After both completed careers in the U.S. Navy, they founded this used paperback and books on CD bookstore that caters to locals and visitors alike.
