“Book Lovers' Nirvana”
Reviewed April 27, 2012

A wonderful indie book store in a hip neighborhood. Lots of off-beat, hard-to-find titles, both new and used. Knowledgable and friendly staff. Heaven for book lovers looking for a quirky, comfy, cozy, West Village-like book store with an afternoon to spare.

“Great little book store.”
Reviewed March 29, 2012

Located in the funky Cooper-Young area of Memphis, Burke's has a nice selection of new, used, and rare books. Very helpful and friendly staff. "Hound Dog" e-newsletter available, and they are a "dog friendly" store.

Great place to stock up on reading material, and walk across the street for a drink or meal at one of the interesting little cafes. Park in small lot next door or on the street.
