It is easy to get lost while you are browsing the bookshelves of a bookshop. Regardless if you are a bookworm or just a light reader, reading to gain a new perspective or learning something new can be fantastic for your overall wellbeing. Here are a few of our favorite book shops in Savannah:
Books on Bay
Located right on bustling River Street by the Savannah waterfront, Books on Bay is an eclectic book store where you can spend a part of your afternoon looking through its colorful shelves. Since it is in the Historical District of Savannah, the wooden interiors and creaky floors give visitors a unique experience that will have you feeling like you are back in the 17th-century. The store holds literally thousands of antique books from the 16th century all the way up to modern day reads. Ask any one of the friendly staff members about their collection and they will enthusiastically recite the history of a particular book.
The Book Lady Bookstore
Pay a visit to The Book Lady Bookstore if you want a magical, cozy bookstore experience! Small in size, but high in quality, The Book Lady Bookstore was started in 1978 and is Savannah’s only full-service independent bookstore offering a wide variety of new, used, rare, and out-of-print books. Many local authors also sell their works here and the shop serves as a meeting point for many members of the Savannah literary community. Be sure to stop by their little “cafe,” where you can serve yourself a small cup of tea or coffee that is hidden behind a black curtain in the center of the shop.
Savannah is a charming city full of history and cozy bookstores like these. If you are searching for a new community, give us a call at Olympus Fenwick to learn more about our beautiful apartments in Savannah and schedule your own private tour today!
