Books are the new black



I love discovering new books to read. My bookshelves are overflowing with books that I’ve collected over time. I could spend hours in a bookstore reading a good book. Reading has been a hobby of mine since I was a little girl. My favorite memory as a child is going to the big library in Decatur, Georgia after church on Sundays to pick out a new book.

So I was excited to discover the Read Shop by the team at the Merchant when it opened just a few miles from my home a couple of years ago.

The walls are lined with books from floor to ceiling. This place is a book lovers dream. The vintage-inspired bookstore and coffee shop specializes in carrying top New York Times bestsellers, cookbooks, coffee table books, books by southern authors, children books, and classics. There is a little something for everyone. Even coffee! 

The next time you are in Vinings make sure to stop by the Read Shop.
