Savannah, Georgia Bookstores

In March my family and I spent a week in Charleston, spending one day in Savannah, Georgia. Savannah is the home of Flanney O'Connor and Forrest Gump, and the inspiration for the book Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. It's a charming Southern city, with terrific bookstores.



Located at 6 E Liberty Street, The Book Lady Bookstore is one of those shops that is amazingly photogenic. It just looks so good, in photographs and in person. With books galore, a cafe and a reading garden, this used book store has a cozy charm that makes you feel instantly at home. 



Nearby is E. Shaver, Bookseller, located at 326 Bull Street. While my photographs didn't turn out as well in this shop, it's a bright store with tons of stock and so many original items, such as the Jane Austen doll pictured above. Like many other great bookshops, it is so much bigger than it appears. Together, these two very different shops compliment each other and provide Savannah with a well rounded selection of books, from the new to the used and rare.
