***Sadly this bookstore closed up in 2016. I’m leaving this post up as an archive ***
I stumbled across a used bookstore over in the Irondale area of town, so I thought I’d share. It’s called Doggone Books and enjoys the fortuitous traffic-inducing location of being two doors down from the Whistlestop Cafe (yes, THAT Whistlestop Cafe).
They are open Tuesday-Friday 10:30 am to 6 pm and Sunday 10 am to 3 pm.
If you read general fiction and some of the more popular history books that have been published in the past 10 years, this is a good stop. His “Alabama Books” section is growing too as the owners get plugged into the estate sale circuit. I’m not sure how long they’ve been in business, but I’ve been by three times now and have run across something new each time.
Here are some pictures, to give you a little preview.
