Best Charleston Book Shop: Blue Bicycle Books


Blue Bicycle Books
Used, Rare & Local
420 King St.
Charleston, SC 29403
(843) 722-2666

Voted “Best Used Book Store” 5 years in a row, Blue Bicycle Books was taken over by a former employee and his wife in 2007, and continues to delight readers on King Street 8 years later. The store opened in 1995 as Boomer’s Books, and has always offered knowledgable staff, a comfortable atmosphere, and a friendly shop cat to pet. Online book sellers don’t have shop cats.

The cherry on the cake is that one of the few on street bike corrals in Charleston, is in front of Blue Bicycle Books!
