The bookstore is alive and well and living near The Gramercy at Town Center.
Yes, really. In spite of e-readers and mega-websites and Twitter, Columbia's Second Edition Books, located on Dobbin Road, sports an 'overwhelming' selection of used books, music, and movies. Locals say that they have to steel themselves for trips here, otherwise they'll walk out with bags full of stuff they didn't know they wanted!
Second Edition also accepts sales (cash) and trades, so take advantage of the opportunity to round up what books, music and film you can part with and see what Second Edition has to offer. Their friendly staff are always on-hand to help patrons find what they're looking for amid their crowded stacks, and if you're looking for recommendations, they've got 'em.
Check their site for hours, events, and more information.
