A Book-Lovers Book Store 12/3/2011

I love the way this bookstore looks, feels, and smells. If you're a true book-lover, you'll understand the "smells." Calling it a book "store" almost feels rude. It's more like a private library. Ever wander around a friend's grandma's house and came across a great stash of books she'd been keeping since she was a child? That's this place. As for the owners, they know (and love) their books! And, personally, I very much appreciate and prefer a dry sense of humor. But, then, I think you have to possess a higher-than-average level of intelligence to "get" sarcasm for its comedic value. The owners will take good care of you, help you in any way they can, and make you wish all bookstores were like Landmark. Pros: null Cons: null more

A great place for books 11/30/2011

I find it amazing the 1st reviewer can't recognize a facetious remark! Besides this is his business not a public restroom! Pros: null Cons: null more

very rude owner 10/31/2011

My wife and I visited this bookstore during the Pumpkin Festival. As we both enjoy reading, we wanted to check the place out while we were in downtown Franklin. We really did not have any intentions of buying or not buying anything. Had something caught our eye at what we considered a reasonable price we would have bought it. After browsing the selection for 20-30 minutes, my wife and I both needed to use the restroom. A man walked over while we were standing in line to use the restroom and began complaining about the line. I went into the restroom at about this time and after exiting the restroom he was still there complaining. It didn't take long before I realized that it was the owner of the bookstore. He asked me if I was going to be one of those people that came into the bookstore to use the restroom and not buy anything. I told him that I guess I was going to be one of those people but that I hadn't come into the store for the purpose of using the restroom. He told me that I could leave $10 at the checkout when I left. I don't think I've ever been treated so rudely in a business. I realize it must be frustrating when people are using your business as a place to use the restroom, but I can't imagine it is a very good business practice to be such a jerk to potential customers. We will never go back. Pros: null Cons: null more

Great Place to go While Waiting for Riff Burgers 7/1/2011

I was waiting for some friends to meet me at Riff Burgers & they were running late so i went into Landmark Books which was a block (not even) away on Main. more

Do not go to this store 3/30/2011

I had often times passed landmark booksellers on my way through the bustling boulevards of Franklin and recently on an unseasonalably-warm early springtime afternoon decided to succumb to my curiosity and patronize the local book seller.\r \r Upon entering we were gruffly greeted with ?Have you ever been here before??\r \r I relayed to the shopkeeper that we had walked past on many occasions and that we had decided to quench our curiosity and gaze upon the contents of there within. \r \r She asked again if we were looking for something and I told her we would probably just browse around a bit. She looked very skeptical and then told us to leave our personal items in the front of the store all the while relaying very ineloquently that she was the only person in the store so that we would not be able to go to some parts of it, as well as that the books were out of our price range.\r \r The woman working the store then alternated between following us around the store and mindlessly chattering more

Really Great & worth a look 5/21/2010

Loved this store. id been nervous to come in bc its not a borders or some big chain & i get nervous sometimes that i will feel pressured into a sale at a small biz. I didnt buy anything & didnt feel bad at all. Im definitely coming back with grandkids(theres a kids room) next time im walking down main st. also the buildings really pretty. more
