Books Again Planning to Close Brick-and-Mortar By Year End

Books Again owner Jim Adams sent out this announcement…

Dear Fellow Book Lovers,

After 13 years of selling lots of books and making even more friends, I have decided to make Books Again an online-only shop. The brick-and-mortar store will be closed by the end of 2013 or before, depending on how quickly the inventory and the fixtures are sold.

To that end, starting Saturday, October 26th, I will begin selling our stock
at 50% off and will keep the store open 7 days a week for your shopping convenience. I will also send you emails about the progressively increasing discounts towards the end of the sale.

I personally want to thank all of my loyal customers who supported Books Again through the years and gave me a reason to get excited about coming to work every day. I hope to see every one of you during the sale so I can thank you each in person.

In summary, here is the deal:

* Sale starts SATURDAY, OCTOBER 26th. Doors open at 10AM!
* All books are 50% off (yes, even the collectibles & the few new books we have) with the exception of consignment items.
* Terms are cash, check, debit card or credit card. Cash & checks are best!
* If you are planning on using trade credit we will allow you a 20% discount.

* Extended store hours: Mon-Fri (11AM-6PM); Sat (10AM-5PM); Sun (Noon-5PM).

Thanks for the memories,

Jim Adams

  1. Knew this would happen soon, but it’s still a bummer. One of the best used book stores in the metro area in terms of quality and selection (and I consider used book stores much more valuable than new). Sad that a city that hosts such a great book festival will soon have only one book store in its city limits.

  2. Sad to see this. Years ago, the DHS library discarded some ancient books from before the Fifties. One was the complete set of Georgia Confederate soldiers. Saving the books from dumpster death, I brought the set over to Books Again and exchanged it for a signed copy of “The Little Girl Is Dead”, one of the early books about the Mary Phagan/Leo Frank case. My wife read this book in elementary school and has been fascinated by the event ever since. She was thrilled to get an a copy signed by the author. As I recall, the store had a huge cat that seemed to always sit on a shelf in front of the picture window. Thanks Mr. Jim and best of luck!
