“70,000 used books that all need new loving homes- for only $2 a pound!”
Books By The Pound - Lawrenceville, GA
The 20,000 square foot building stocks over 70,000 used books. Co-owners Cris Williams and Justin Krewatch say they’ve seen bookstores of a similar concept, but competitors sell books by the pound for almost 4 times as much. Readers can buy 3 pounds of books for $3.99, a second set of 5 pounds for $2.99 and then $1.99 per 1 pound.
The store also occasionally runs ‘by-the-bag’ sales. For a limited time, book lovers can fill a small bag (fitting about 10 books) or a large bag (fitting about 15 to 20 books) for $28 and $63.
