No trip to Asheville is complete without a stop at Malaprop's.

Graywacke Yes! There‘s a lovely but less well-named used book store nearby. 3mo
ImperfectCJ @Graywacke Is it Downtown Books and News? I've heard of it but haven't been. 3mo
Graywacke @ImperfectCJ yes. I recommend! (Ok, was there like 8 years ago. But i loved it then. Lots of obscure interesting stuff.) 3mo

I‘m home from my trip to see family and friends in VT and NC. I only got to one bookstore, my favorite in Asheville, Malaprop‘s. I would have gotten more if I‘d had room, but these two and a tee would barely cram in to my luggage 😁📚. It was a wonderful trip, I had so much fun. Now I‘m glad to be back home and halfway through The Lioness already.

Tamra Loved my visit to Malaprop‘s! Their emails are terrific too. 5mo
CarolynM Great T-shirt 😍 You need one of these @MrsMalaprop 5mo
Lcsmcat We just missed each other! I‘m in Asheville now. Last night was French Broad Chocolate Lounge, today is Malaprops and Echoview Fiber Mill! (Echoview for my daughter who knits.) 5mo

I forgot to do my #Two4Tuesday yesterday! So here‘s a Two 4 Wednesday

1. I need to go to the tagged shop, here in my home state. I haven‘t made it there in person yet despite visiting Asheville a few times.

2. I do not, and sometimes a suddenly draw a blank! Luckily I can open my Litsy TBR and that helps..

@TheSpineView

TheSpineView Wednesday is a good day too! 💚 Malaprops. Do you like Battery Park Book Exchange and Champagne Bar? 11mo
MallenNC @TheSpineView I need to go there too! I am hoping to do a tour of indie bookstores in NC when COVID gets better. 11mo
TheSpineView @MallenNC Great idea! 11mo

#two4tuesday

1. I‘ll visit any bookstore anytime! I especially loved Mr. Kay‘s and Malaprops in Asheville.

2. Before my smart phone I used to keep a list of books I‘d need when I went to my local dollar used bookstore in Florida.

TheSpineView I love Mr. Ks and Malaprops also!💙📘 11mo
jb72 @TheSpineView They are both so much fun. I could spend way too much time browsing used books. 11mo

Inland was my staff recommended. I am excited for the Liberal Redneck Manifesto, that was an odd find. #TBR #buiredinmyTBR #shopsmall #newbooksmell

My semi-annual trip to one of my favorite bookstores (tagged) happened this weekend! #shopindie #independentbookstore #bookstores

Some Europa, NYRB and Murakami. And a Yates I didn‘t know existed! 👏

Hope you all had as much success this weekend.

ValerieAndBooks Great haul! I‘ve learned to look at the bottom of spines for the logos of publishers I like 😊 3y
ValerieAndBooks But of course titles and authors are important too! 3y
cathysaid @ValerieAndBooks Yes! I tend towards publishers I like at out-of-town bookstores (no idea why). But still, occasionally I run across a Europa or NYRB I don‘t enjoy. It‘s a fine balance 😆 3y

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ An amazing bookstore. Carefully curated selection, employees who are helpful and knowledgeable, and located in the most amazing city of Asheville. My absolute favorite bookstore in the US. And their sister (used) bookstore, Downtown Books and News, is delightful as well.

DGRachel My goal is to get over there one weekend before the year is out! 3y
Bookish_B I'll be Asheville next weekend (from Los Angeles) and I plan to go to this bookstore. So excited! (edited) 3y
cathysaid @Bookish_B You will fall in love. Check out their staff recs. And the used bookstore on the next block. 3y
