ATHENS, GA–AVID BOOKSTORES

The first “Athens Inside Out” movie.

Athens is known for being the launch pad for so many internationally-known musicians and visual artists. REM, the B52s, The Glands, Of Montreal, Love Tractor, and the legendary poet-musician Vic Chestnut to name a few. The film Athens Inside Out best describes that fertile red clay that helped sprout so many phenomenal artists. And Casa Forte’s JD Hollingsworth, also a musician, is one of them.

You can find his books at AVID books, a great hangout for locals after brunch at The Grit.

AUGUSTA

Not too long ago, I took our books to The Book Tavern, in Augusta. Lovely place and an incredible collection of rare books in Portuguese, French and German. The store sits right on the main boulevard next to very funky, colorful shops and a great cafe.

ASHEVILLE, NC

MALAPROPS

This impressive collection of used and new books shows the caliber of Asheville’s readers and the store’s smart curators. No malapropisms here.
