Readers Corner is the best book store in North Carolina-- Period!
Terrific and ever changing selection- good prices and a most friendly staff. Irv is a NC icon!

THE best place to find out-of-print books and music, vintage postcards, cookbooks, and children's books. And the endcaps are not to be missed: plastered with all the pictures, news clippings, cartoons, receipts, etc. that have been found in the books over the years. The staff are warm and accommodating. Located fairly close to I-40 and the Beltline and well worth the short detour.

Reader's Corner is one of my favorite places in the City. Amazingly I have found books, vhs, and dvds that I considered extinct. I do enjoy the visit and the browsing. The friendly atmoshere is a plus. You miss that around the city.I do urge book-hunters to give it a try. Rare movies and the music album will always astonish you.

I love to read and really like shopping at used book stores. For one thing I'm cheap, I don't remember the last time I paid full price for a new hardback. And for another, there's nothing like going shopping for one book and coming out with an out of print gem that you would never find in a new book store. I have no qualms against the big chains (how can you hate on a book/music store?), but there's no substitute for a good, cozy, used book store with friendly and helpful staff. Reader's Corner is just such a place. Personally, I'm partial to the classics of literature and they have a great selection which is well organized. Love the jazz and classical music playing over the soundsystem as well. When buying books in Raleigh, this is one of my first stops. The only complaint I have is the narrow aisles which can make it difficult to shop the low shelves, but it doesn't detract from the overall experience. Definitely recommended!

Had trouble finding an out-of-print book and Irv found it for me. Great service and so many books! It's quaint, friendly, and just what one needs. The outside 'finds' are fun also.

This is a VERY unique book store. It is a used book/record store overflowing with character. If you don't see the book on the shelf, ask if they have it. Some of their stock is stored in other locations. The aisles are narrow, but crammed with anything you could ever want or need.

The readers corner is a fantastic small book store. My favorite part about the readers corner is that you can get used books 24 hours a day...they have a bookshelf outside with books on it for $.25 that you can access all the time and pay through a drop box in the door. the readers corner is also pretty neatly decorated. A friend of my accidentally sold a book along with a pictue of her mother in it...they framed it aand mounted it on the wall. Fun stuff.

The Readers Corner is one of my favorite places in Raleigh. The people are friendly. I always find the book that I need, along with ten or more books that i WANT. Their parking lot can be difficult to manuever in and out of, but it is worth the trouble.
