My partner and I went to Bank Street Books because we love used books, and overall, is a pretty good selection of all types of books and we left with quite a haul! We found parking right outside the store, and it was kind of a impromptu decision because we had just passed it when we decided to go in.... More

I love this book store because every book I was looking for, I found! They especially have a nice children's books selection to itself. Its a great place to stop in with reasonable prices!

We weren't sure what to expect with this store. We were kind of hoping for some older or more unique volumes, but unfortunately they didn't have anything we were interested in. We did end up buying a couple of fiction books that we needed to complete a set. It's a great store if you are looking for current books at... More

I love finding used book stores when we go away on vacation. We stumbled upon this store as we were cruising through downtown Luray and decided to stop in. I am glad we did. I found a few books by authors I'd been wanting to try. It's also a great way to spend a little time shopping and get my... More

I stopped in to see if I could find anything interesting. I collect books and when I see used book stores I try to pop in- so glad I did in this case. Found a couple of recent hard back editions by my favorite author for $9.50! Then I found some other pleasure reading for $2.00 a piece. The greatest... More

Nice selection, sorted well. Paperbacks to author-signed editions. Lots of books in a smaller space but laid out so it was easy to navigate. Limited seating for those who like to try before they buy. They have a vast kids section as well.

We loved the comfy leather couch in this well-organized used bookstore in historic downtown Luray. There are two stories of books, and a kids room complete with stuffed animals and other goodies. The owners were friendly and we loved the funky decorating -- they collect owls which were all over the store. Most of the town closes up early, so... More
