The Open Book is the largest and oldest independent bookstore in South Carolina.  And for this pilgrim it was a great big oasis!  This store had food, coffee, free wi-fi, and friendly staff.  It’s family owned and operated and has been for thirty years.

They carry new and used titles here and have a very large children’s section.  Their customers have supported them for a long time, and those customers who grew up visiting the store now bring their own children.  P1000855

A lot of southern authors, especially from the Carolinas, make it a must-visit while on tour as Open Book has a strong sections on the region and regional authors.

As is the case with most stores, they work a lot of trade shows and school fairs, and the cafe is actually sublet to a different owner, allowing Open Books to keep their focus on books.

One final thing — they have a room set aside for community usage.  Whether it’s writing workshops or community clubs, The Open Book really is an oasis for Greenville, SC.
