    We’ve said it once and we will say it again: A CAPPELLA BOOKS is the smartest bookstore in town. Its wide selection of progressive, counter-culture and music books is complemented by an assortment of modern first editions, rare and out-of-print books, all at affordable prices. Plus, with its move around the corner to the plaza that holds Criminal Records, and its recent addition of regular in-store performances by indie bands, we’ve got a whole new list of reasons to keep checking A Cappella’s website to see what’s coming up. less...

    How's this for service? When Frank Reiss, owner of A CAPPELLA BOOKS, couldn't find enough copies of popular out-of-print books for his customers, he started his own independent press - everthemore books - to print more. And for the re-release of Rodger Brown's "Party Out of Bounds: The B-52's, R.E.M.,more...
    How's this for service? When Frank Reiss, owner of A CAPPELLA BOOKS, couldn't find enough copies of popular out-of-print books for his customers, he started his own independent press - everthemore books - to print more. And for the re-release of Rodger Brown's "Party Out of Bounds: The B-52's, R.E.M., and the Kids Who Rocked Athens, Georgia", Reiss looked up some of the Athens musicians featured in the book and brought them to the store to play live, including Paul Lombard of the Little Tigers. Now that's a book signing. "1133 Euclid Ave. 404-681-5128. www.acappellabooks.com" less...

    Finding a specific title in BOOK NOOK can be a daunting task, but this is definitely a case where the joy is in the journey. It's easy to get lost in the back shelves of this cluttered, colorful shop, a bookstore that also lures in musicheads (with its impressive line of used CDs) and fan kids (with its comics and action figure collections). And take note: The Marietta store has moved further down Roswell Road, and the Clairmont Road store relocates to North Druid Hills Road in November. "3342 Clairmont Road. 404-633-1328; and other locations." less...

    3342 Clairmont Road and other locations 404-633-1328 http://www.atlantabooknook.com Used books are meant to be touched, handled, groped and fondled. Unlike the cookie-cutter chains with perfectly labeled aisles and pristine piles of paperbacks, used-book stores should be as dog-eared as their wares. The Book Nook definitely annoys those looking for an easy find. You have to climb through stacks of molding tomes and search for the book that you might never have known you actually wanted. And when you find it, you "have" to buy it. Leave Borders to the chumps, this is for the real book lovers. Plus, the selection of used CDs, records, movies and comics will give you something else to spend countless hours pawing through. less...

    In the shifting landscape of Little Five, where businesses pop up and disappear before the graffiti's even dry, Acappella Books has been a literary landmark for more than 10 years. From Joseph Campbell to Stephen King, expect everything at this store except piles of wrinkled romance novels or coverless Grishams. In fact, the used titles are often hard to distinguish from new ones, so crisp is their condition. less...
