Sadly, where I live, these kinds of independent bookstores don't exist anymore. All we have are two Barnes and Noble. So, when I saw this listed in the Asheville section of our guidebook, I knew I needed to stop in. It so happened we just missed a Billy Collins reading that evening, but he was still in the store signing... 更多
A trip to Asheville from Cleveland and Toronto is not complete without a visit to Malaprop's Bookstore. Supporting independent bookstores is one of our passions. Malaprop's is one of the best we have visited and love to support. The breadth of topics with great selections is fantastic. We will be back.
Very nice selection of local and national writers in a perfect location in downtown Ashville. The café has good food and coffee and they host writers for book signings and lectures. I would love to call this my bookstore and will be back next trip to Ashville.

This is a WONDERFUL independent book store. Warm, inviting, current, and full of fabulous reads. I roamed for a couple of hours and happily purchased a few... 更多
On a recent family outing to Asheville, I made an immediate detour for this shop, as I am a huge fan of local booksellers. These folks did not disappoint! My husband and 7-year-old son found the kids' section right away and settled in to find Waldo in one of the Where's Waldo books. My tween queen b-lined to the YA... 更多
