The Book Shelf is a great place to get used books. The store's selection isn't as large as McKay's, but it saves you a drive to Knoxville. The books a reasonably priced, with new releases going for about 60 percent of the sales price. Like all used bookstores, it has a healthy supply of romance novels. You can usually find some titles published the same month. The store also has a good selection of western novels and common nonfiction topics like business and biography. The clerks that work there are always helpful and will help you find what you want. The Book Shelf is located in a small shopping center next to Shoney's. It's so small you really can't call it a strip mall. Only four or five businesses are located there.
