Read it Again Books - Grove City, OH
This lovely little shop is in the historic “Elias White House”, on the historical register. You walk in the front door beside a huge mural of historic Grove City (nice touch!) into the entry with the cash register, a small selection of books, a cozy chair, and a wonderful greeter. Each “room” of the house is a different genre or set of genres. The books are in order, clean, and nicely presented. There are chairs strategically put throughout the rooms for sitting down browsing. Beware: the rocker in the non fiction/biography/memoir room squeaks! The resident cat, Lucy, likes to have her face scratched.
As best I could tell, all the books are used. The pricing is generally as follows: Paperbacks are 1/2 list price, and the hardbacks are 1/3 list price. There are exceptions, including their antique collection and some other unique books.
The front of the building has a nice sunny front porch with big round picnic tables. It sits in the historic district of Grove City, walking distance from other small shops, restaurants and even the theater.
