The original Burkes bookstore opened in 1875, so you know this place has some stories to tell! The current location is not where the original store was located. But you will still get is personal, attentive service from the staff. If you are lucky, you might bump into John Grisham shopping here. This shop definitely has a Midtown feel to it. Next time you are done playing at Overton Park, swing by and shop at a bookstore with character.

Burkes has a lot of used and vintage books, some hard-to-find types. But they often don't have what I'm looking for and it seems a little cramped. I like the staff and they're very knowledgeable and passionate about books. There usually aren't many people there, but they must do a great business because they've been there for so long! Enjoyable bookstore.

Specializes in used and rare or out of print books. The people there love books and you can tell. The shop is small with shelves close together and filled with books. If you get claustrophobic you'll probably get a little antsy in here then. Parking is adequate for this store so you shouldn't have a problem. My only problem was trying to make a left out of the parking lot. Is quicker sometimes to turn right and go around the block. Some of the books are a little pricey but for what you get, that's ok. Expect good service. Not the constantly following you around type but certainly there if you have a question. I love the place and would recommend them to anybody who loves books.
