Chop Suey books sits on West Cary Street in hip Carytown, Richmond’s funky shopping district.  It’s in a good location — next to an ice cream parlor and across from a theater.  There is a lot of pedestrian traffic in the area and Chop Suey gets a lot of business from people walking by.

They sell new and used books here and the new books seem very carfeully selected.  It’s also a fun store.  Heavy on art and design titles.  They host events — readings and art shows and lectures.  They also host a young writer’s summer workshopchop suey.  The store has two floors and not letting any chance go to waste, they sublet some space on their ground floor to Velocity Comics.

The most interesting aspect of this store, however, has to be the nonprofit they started called Books on Wheels.  This nonprofit provides free books, bike parts, and bicycles to at-risk youth in Richmond and beyond.

A cool store.
