Most of us spend our time staring at our phones, laptops, smart TVs and watches and pretty much anything that’s digital, which kind of sucks. Even though these screens pull us in majority of our days, sometimes it’s really good to just look up or even find something vintage and timeless to grab our attention. This Georgia bookstore has rows and rows of your new literary babies that can all be purchased for only for $2 per pound.
Books By The Pound in Lawrenceville, Georgia pretty much tells you what they’re all about. This massive 20,000 square foot building has a stock of over 70,000 used books that all need new loving homes. The store owners set out to do something that they’ve only seen done on smaller scales. In an interview with Gwinnett Daily Post, co-owners Cris Williams and Justin Krewatch say they’ve seen bookstores of a similar concept, but competitors sell books by the pound for (on average) $7.99.
The owners originally weren’t so sure about the growth of the store, with closing guaranteed after three months if they didn’t have success. Well, Georgia showed up and proved these guys wrong with business booming more than ever. Even Atlantans travel less than an hour Outside Of The Perimeter (OTP) to visit this store and potentially grab new titles for personal collections.
