Paper Hound

Top choice Books

in Downtown & West End

Proving the printed word is alive and kicking, this small but perfectly curated secondhand bookstore is a dog-eared favorite among locals. A perfect spot for browsing, you'll find tempting tomes (mostly used but some new) on everything from nature to poetry to chaos theory. Ask for recommendations; they really know their stuff here. Don't miss the bargain rack out front.

The store is in the heart of a downtown area historically known as Book Row. Once you're done here, check out the three or four other used-book stores that call this area home.
